CaroMont Health has announced plans to open a joint venture ambulatory surgery centre in Belmont, Gaston County, US. 

Belmont Surgery Center is being built in partnership with Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center, OrthoCarolina and Neuroscience & Spine Center of the Carolinas.

The multi-specialty facility is set to provide quality care by bringing the region’s top orthopaedic and spine surgeons under one roof.

The outpatient surgery centre will come up at CaroMont Health’s new Belmont campus and features two operating suites and two procedure rooms.

The facility will occupy 14,000ft² on the first floor of a medical office building. It will be located adjacent to CaroMont Regional Medical Center-Belmont, which is under construction.

CaroMont Health executive vice-president and chief physician executive Todd Davis said: “CaroMont Health is proud of this partnership and the strong relationship the partners share.

“The level of respect and collaboration between the health system and these exceptional groups is anchored in a commitment to put patients first.”

“Belmont Surgery Center will be an incredible, state-of-the-art facility, but the expertise of the surgeons, providers and staff who work there will make this project truly exceptional.”

Belmont Surgery Center will focus on musculoskeletal outpatient surgery, including orthopaedic and sports medicine, neuro-spine, full and partial joint replacement as well as pain management procedures.

Currently under construction as part of CaroMont Health’s four-floor Medical Pavilion, the surgery centre is expected to be ready in mid-2023.

Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center partner and orthopaedic surgeon H. Clayton Thomason commented: “We have been committed to this for years and see this as an opportunity to continue to offer unparalleled and cutting edge orthopaedic and spine care with the added convenience of same-day surgeries, improving access and convenience to everyone.

“This centre will allow us to offer all the patient benefits of modern ambulatory surgery centres without the hassles of multicentre systems and big city travel.”
