In 2007, our physicians established Outpatient Surgical Specialties Center (OSSC) with their patients in mind. OSSC is privately owned and operated and is a state licensed and Medicare certified Ambulatory Surgical Center. Our surgical center team is committed to meeting your needs and providing quality and affordable health care for the community.
From the beginning of your experience, OSSC offers you peace of mind with our convenient location and hassle free parking. You will also find our business office staff and surgical center team to be courteous, efficient, and truly committed to your care and recovery. At OSSC, your comfort and care are our highest priority.
OSSC focuses on outpatient surgery, so we have optimized the process of preparation and recovery for our patients. Aside from getting personalized surgical care, you can also benefit from financial savings, as procedures done at our center are typically 50% less costly than those done in a hospital.
