Multi-Specialty Outpatient Surgery Center to Open in Belmont
Belmont, N.C. – CaroMont Health, in partnership with Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center, OrthoCarolina, and Neuroscience & Spine Center of the Carolinas, today announced plans to open an ambulatory surgery center in Belmont. The multi-specialty facility, named Belmont Surgery Center, will bring together the region’s top orthopedic and spine surgeons to provide exceptional care and treatment.
Located on CaroMont Health’s new Belmont campus, the state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center will occupy 14,000 square feet on the first floor of a medical office building that lies adjacent to CaroMont Regional Medical Center-Belmont (under construction). With two operating suites and two procedure rooms, Belmont Surgery Center will primarily offer musculoskeletal outpatient surgery, including orthopedic and sports medicine, neuro-spine, full and partial joint replacement, and pain management procedures.
While this strategic partnership will create the first joint venture surgery center in Gaston County, the four partners have worked side-by-side for more than two decades. This history of collaboration and coordination provides a solid foundation to support expansion into the eastern Gaston, western Mecklenburg region.
Todd Davis, MD, MMM – Executive Vice President, Chief Physician Executive, CaroMont Health: “CaroMont Health is proud of this partnership and the strong relationship the partners share. The level of respect and collaboration between the health system and these exceptional groups is anchored in a commitment to put patients first. Belmont Surgery Center will be an incredible, state-of-the-art facility, but the expertise of the surgeons, providers and staff who work there will make this project truly exceptional.”
H. Clayton Thomason, III, MD – Partner and Orthopedic Surgeon, Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center: “At Carolina Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Center, we are extremely excited to partner with CaroMont Health and the other groups to provide an ambulatory surgery center to our patients in Gaston County and the surrounding areas. We have been committed to this for years and see this as an opportunity to continue to offer unparalleled and cutting edge orthopaedic and spine care with the added convenience of same-day surgeries, improving access and convenience to everyone. This Center will allow us to offer all the patient benefits of modern ambulatory surgery centers without the hassles of multicenter systems and big city travel.”
Ranjan S. Maitra, MD – Orthopedic Surgeon, OrthoCarolina:
“OrthoCarolina is committed to helping our patients receive best in class care and affordable surgery options close to home. We look forward to continuing to work hand-in-hand with our patients and exceptional healthcare partners to reach outstanding outcomes at this new facility.”
William Hunter, MD, FAANS – Neurosurgeon and Spine Specialist, Neuroscience & Spine Center of the Carolinas: “I have served this community as a neurosurgeon for more than 23 years, I am proud to partner alongside CaroMont Regional Medical Center, Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine and OrthoCarolina with the opening of the Belmont Surgery Center. Within this partnership, I will be able to perform the newest techniques in minimally invasive spine surgery in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. The Belmont Surgery Center will have the latest equipment along with an excellent specialized staff. I am excited to be a part of its inception and look forward to being part of a strong collaboration of surgeons and staff to provide state of the art care to the community.”
Belmont Surgery Center is currently under construction as part of CaroMont Health’s four-floor Medical Pavilion. The surgery center is expected to open in mid-2023.
