The Orthopedic Surgery Center in Youngstown, Ohio, recorded its highest patient surgical volume in 2022, prompting the practice to hire rougly 5 new staff members and expand its campus through the addition of a 36,000-squrae-foot clinic housing Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates, according to a Feb. 16 report from The Business Journal.
The center has been open for 20 years, with the pandemic fueling an increased patient volume as patients desired the increased infection control and shorter lengths of stay ASCs offer.
In 2022, the ASC and practice added more clinical staff and planned the 36,000-square-foot expansion, which should be completed this year.
The practice also plans to add foot, ankle and spine surgeons in 2023. The center was the first in Ohio to use Stryker's Mako robot for joint replacements.
