Blanchard Valley Health System (BVHS) recently acquired the Findlay Surgery Center (FSC), located at 1709 Medical Blvd. in Findlay, thereby adding an outpatient surgery center to its continuum of services.
The FSC will continue to offer surgical and procedural services in orthopedics, podiatry, general surgery, ENT (otolaryngology), pain management, plastic and cosmetic surgery, ophthalmology, gynecology, urology, endoscopic and oral surgery.
“The FSC has provided excellent services to the community for more than 20 years,” stated Scott Malaney, president and CEO of BVHS. “We look forward to working together on this initiative and learning from each other.”
The goal of the acquisition is to retain the surgery center’s efficiency and convenience to patients and physicians, while making the resources of BVHS available.
“This acquisition strongly supports our mission, vision and values to better serve our community. The FSC has earned its reputation for delivering high quality care and we are proud to bring them into the BVHS family of professionals,” added Malaney.
The staff currently at the FSC will remain at that location and operations will function “business as usual.” There are no expected disruptions in service to patients.
BVHS and the FSC participate with most local and national commercial insurers. It is the patient’s responsibility to notify their insurance company of an upcoming procedure and to confirm whether the facilities are in-network or out-of-network facility.
“This is an exciting venture that prioritizes the health needs of our community,” added Cheryl Cunningham, administrator at the FSC. “We have worked in partnership with BVHS for many years and are looking forward to aligning the FSC with a health system that consistently provides world class care.”
