CHI Saint Joseph Health Opens Outpatient Surgery Center


LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 4, 2021) – CHI Saint Joseph Health is expanding options for outpatient care and increasing surgical capacity with the opening of an outpatient surgery center in the Saint Joseph Office Park on Harrodsburg Road. The new surgery center opened today, January 4.

“We are excited to announce and open this new option for outpatient surgical services for patients in Lexington and central Kentucky,” said Bruce Tassin, CEO, CHI Saint Joseph Health, and president, Saint Joseph Hospital and Saint Joseph East. “This newly renovated free-standing surgery center expands our ability to meet the needs of more patients with a wide range of outpatient procedures and surgeries in a convenient location near Saint Joseph Hospital.”

The 20,386 square-foot center is opening following renovation of a former outpatient surgery center in Building D of the Saint Joseph Office Park on Harrodsburg Road. The center features six operating rooms and six procedure rooms, with the ability to schedule up to 12,000 procedures each year, available for providers credentialed with the new outpatient surgery center.

Surgeons in the new center have access to state-of-the-art equipment and a dedicated, highly skilled clinical team to perform a broad range of surgical and procedure needs. Outpatient procedures that are expected to be performed include, but not limited to, those that address chronic pain, such as injections and neurostimulators; orthopedic surgeries, such as total joint replacement and ACL, meniscus and rotator cuff repair; pediatric dental surgery; cosmetic surgery such as abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, face lift and blepharoplasty; and laparoscopic abdominal surgery.
