Celebrating 5 Years of Patient-Focused Surgical Care

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

It’s celebration time! On June 6th of 2011 we opened our Branford-based ASC (Ambulatory Surgical Center). This state-of-art surgical facility is the crown jewel of our COS Branford Campus that features clinical offices with 6 exam rooms (including digital X-Ray), one of our two MRI suites, COSNOW walk-in care and STAR physical therapy.

Here are the top things to know about our surgical center:

  • We continue to be a thriving source of local jobs – our surgical staff has grown by 100% in five years
  • Our array of professional staff includes Physicians, Physician’s Assistants, Registered Nurses, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, and Certified Surgical Technologists
  • We’ve expanded to keep up with the growing demand for individualized surgical care by growing from 2 to 3 operating rooms – we have also added a procedure room in the new facility
  • Our opening day surgical line-up included Doctors Beiner, Caminear, Tomak, Diana, and Cohen - today we have over 25 surgeons using our surgical center on a regular basis
  • In the earlier years most surgeries were related to sports medicine care (e.g. knees, shoulders, foot & ankle) – since then we have added spine surgeries, total hip replacements, partial knee replacements and pain management procedures

And most importantly, we’ve seen high patient satisfaction rates as shown by these patient survey responses:
