LEAWOOD, Kan., Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — NueHealth, a ValueHealth company, announces the opening of St. Luke’s Surgery Center of Chesterfield in Chesterfield, Missouri, in partnership with Medical Facilities Corporation, St. Luke’s Hospital, and St. Louis County area physicians.

Located on the west campus of St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, the 17,616 sq ft ambulatory surgery center includes four operating rooms, two procedure rooms, and 24 pre- and post-operation bays. Eighteen physicians offer procedures in orthopaedics, gynecology, plastics, urology, gastroenterology, and general surgery. With annual capacity for 3,000 patients, St. Luke’s Surgery Center of Chesterfield provides patients in the greater St. Louis metro area with high-quality surgical care at extremely competitive pricing. NueHealth provides day-to-day management of the facility, implementing its proven processes to drive efficiencies without compromising care.

The addition of St. Luke’s Surgery Center of Chesterfield will allow appropriate outpatient procedures to be shifted out of St Luke’s Hospital, freeing up capacity for patients whose medical needs require a hospital setting. “This is a great partnership, and the surgery center means new opportunities for high-quality care for our patients,” said orthopedic surgeon Dr. Richard Rames, who is also a partner in the facility and serves as its Board Chair.

“St. Luke’s Surgery Center of Chesterfield is a great example of the NueHealth model in action,” said Dan Tasset, NueHealth CEO and Vice Chairman of the Board. “By working with partners who share our commitment to value-based care, we’re able to effect real change in the way healthcare is delivered to the populations we serve.”
