OhioHealth, a non-profit network of hospitals based in Columbus, Ohio, has partnered with Tennessee-based healthcare services provider Surgery Partners to enhance ambulatory surgical care across Ohio.

The partnership will establish a company that will support the growth of ambulatory surgery centre (ASC) joint ventures throughout Ohio.

This partnership will see strengthening of relationships with surgeons and the facility for patients to receive quality, affordable, and local care.

The new collaboration will follow a phased strategy for state-wide expansion, beginning with expansion opportunities within the 50 counties that OhioHealth covers, then later reviewing opportunities in the remaining 38 counties.

OhioHealth president, central market Brian Jepson said: “We know there is a tremendous desire from patients to work with a trusted healthcare partner for their care.

“OhioHealth is already that partner for inpatient as well ambulatory care in more than half of the state of Ohio. However, to support our organisation’s desire to grow beyond our traditional geographic areas, to meet patients where they are in their health journey, and to partner with surgeons across the state, we needed the right management partner.
