The Summit Surgery Experience: Quality, Innovation, And Cost Reduction
Patients treated at our Vadnais Heights and Eagan Surgery Centers and Care Suites benefit from innovative care at a significantly lower cost with increased protection against surgical complications.
We all know that rising health care costs are a national concern. At Summit Orthopedics, we are committed to constantly improving the quality of your care and your outcome through medical services designed to take advantage of cost-saving efficiencies. The approach we take with total joint replacement and other surgical procedures performed at our Vadnais Heights and Eagan Surgery Centers and Care Suites exemplifies our mission to deliver exceptional healthcare in an atmosphere of hospitality. Our patients receive all-inclusive clinical and recuperative care characterized by specialty expertise, superior patient comfort and safety, and an innovative rehabilitation program.
When you undergo surgery at our Vadnais Heights or Eagan Center, you are cared for by a team of highly trained orthopedic sub-specialists. All of your care, from your first visit through your treatment plan, surgery, and rehabilitation, takes place in one inviting and serene location designed with your safety, convenience, and comfort in mind.
Our Vadnais Heights Surgery Center earned The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval for accreditation. Our compliance with national standards for health care quality reflects quality clinical services:
- Our healthcare teams are regularly trained in orthopedic care advances.
- Our surgical center has sterile gown requirements to reduce risk of infection.
- We use non-narcotic pain management that enables you to begin the recovery process sooner with greater range of joint movement following surgery.
- Compared to traditional hospital environments, our surgery center has extremely low infection rates. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 1 in 20 surgery patients experience infection in hospital environments. At our surgery center, patient risk of infection plummets to only 1 in every 500 patients.
All of these quality and safety benefits are delivered in an inclusive care package for a cost that is 25 to 30 percent less than the cost for the same services in a traditional hospital setting. Quality healthcare delivered in a luxurious setting that delivers excellent outcomes at a significantly reduced cost? That’s our idea of real innovation.
