Atlantic Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine broke ground last week on a new ambulatory surgery center, New England Center for Orthopaedic Surgery.
The new, single-story 11,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center, affiliated with Portsmouth Regional Hospital and jointly owned with HCA Healthcare, will provide outpatient care for orthopaedic patients.
New England Center for Orthopaedic Surgery will have three operating rooms specially designed for orthopaedic procedures and private registration area for patients. The new facility will be highly specialized as a single-specialty center offering only orthopaedic procedures for patients. It is set to be complete in the spring of 2021.
“Patients in Portsmouth will have a safe, convenient and cost-effective environment for receiving orthopaedic outpatient care at New England Center for Orthopaedic Surgery,” said Michael Morwood, MD, orthopaedic surgeon at New England Center for Orthopaedic Surgery. “Our modern ambulatory surgery center will be thoughtfully designed to ensure patients will feel comfortable and at ease while receiving excellent healthcare."
