SCA Signs Formal Agreement With WakeMed Health
Under the agreement, WakeMed will purchase an interest in the general partnership that operates the Blue Ridge Surgery Center in Raleigh. The center, which will continue to be managed by SCA, features six operating rooms and one procedure room. It will be jointly owned by WakeMed, 41 physician partners and SCA.
In addition, SCA will sign an agreement to manage the surgical services for WakeMed Cary Hospital and WakeMed North Healthplex Day Surgery, a freestanding hospital outpatient surgery department.
The enhanced efficiencies and supply chain benefits that SCA can bring to the system are expected improve patient and physician satisfaction as well reduce operating costs.
Andrew Hayek, president and CEO of SCA, said: “We are honored to be selected to enter into this relationship with the WakeMed system. Our commitment is to bring the best practices from our surgical centers across the country to the WakeMed system. We believe this relationship will enhance WakeMed's position as the premiere health system in Raleigh and further position SCA as the partner of choice for health systems and physicians.”
