For most of us, we don’t think too much about surgery until that fateful day we actually need surgery comes. Lucky for the people of North Texas, North Central Surgical Center is an award-winning organization that has been improving the lives of its patients for almost a decade.
Becker’s Hospital Review recently included North Central Surgical Center in their list of “81 Physician-Owned Hospitals to Know,” and with only 240 physician-owned hospitals in the United States, it’s an impressive group to be a part of. We are also Joint Commission Accredited and are an Affiliate Hospital of Baylor Health Care System.
Originally opened in 2005, NCSC transitioned into a fully licensed hospital in 2007 in order to serve the community at a higher level. Led by current CEO Suzanne Greever, our surgical services expanded to cover spine surgery and total joint replacement, and Emergency Care services began to operate 24 hours a day.
Our Emergency Department consists of nationally recognized orthopedic, pain management and surgical specialists who provide the greatest level of care to not just local athletes, but athletes from around the country. This department recently received the national Patient Satisfaction Excellence Award by Press Ganey, and also provides around-the-clock minor emergency care with guaranteed minimal wait times.
In 2011, advanced imaging and radiology services were added to our repertoire. Our radiologists and technologists are among the best and most specialized in North Texas, and are only a phone call away.
We are the professional athletes’ first choice when it comes to advanced imaging. Our team’s skills, as well as our high-tech imaging equipment, are the most sophisticated available today. These comprehensive services include HD MRI, CT Advanced 3-D, 64-Slice, Vascular Ultrasound, Bone Density and X Ray/Fluoroscopy Services.
Today, NCSC performs over 11,000 procedures annually. Our 10 modern operating rooms and three procedure rooms provide patients with today’s most advanced technology. We are in the top 5% in Patient Satisfaction in America for Inpatients. Our center comfortably accommodates all guests in our 23 luxury medical/surgical patient rooms with full menu service.
Our specialties include Bariatric, Disease of the Breast, Gastroenterology (GI), General Surgery, Gynecology, Orthopedic, Pain Management, Plastic Surgery, Podiatry, Spine, Surgical Oncology and Urology. Our surgical teams will help patients every step of the way regardless of their needs, going as far as to provide surgical preparation days before the surgery and assistance days afterwards.
Our very own “Joint Wellness” class is a recommended education program to all patients prior to hip or knee replacement surgery. This class has proven to help our patients properly prepare for their impending surgery. See a full schedule here. Our online concierge can even help out-of-town families and friends find the right accommodations and dining in the area when their loved one needs them close by for their surgery.
If you or a loved one is an athlete in need of surgery, North Central Surgical Center is the best in the business of helping people live better.
