US-based New England Baptist Hospital (NEBH) has collaborated with Constitution Surgery Alliance (CSA) and local surgeons to transform an outpatient surgery department into a new ambulatory surgery centre (ASC) in Dedham.

The New England Baptist Surgery Center will specialise in outpatient orthopaedic surgical subspecialties, including joint replacement, sports medicine, and various orthopaedic surgeries.

This ASC is expected to enable patients to go home sooner after total joint surgery, thereby cutting down costs for care.

Managed in partnership with CSA, the 35,000ft² facility is equipped with eight operating rooms and two procedure rooms, making it one of the largest musculoskeletal surgical facilities in New England.

New England Baptist Hospital president David Passafaro said: “We made the decision to convert our existing space in Dedham due to increased patient demand.

“With advancements in anaesthesia and less invasive surgical procedures, ASCs are a good option for most orthopaedic procedures. Patients are increasingly able to go home on the same day.

“They will get the same high-quality, gold-standard care they expect from the Baptist, without having to drive into Boston.”

The conversion from the previous outpatient care centre to the ASC will help the hospital cater to the rising demand for total joint replacements.

NEBH sports fellowship education medical director Thomas Gill said: “The mission of the new centre is to provide a singular resource for world-class orthopaedic surgical care in the New England area.

“Patients look forward to going back home where they can recuperate more comfortably and quickly. This facility helps get them back in the game and back to their lives.”
