Kingsport, Tenn. (June 18, 2020) – Holston Medical Group (HMG) announced today that its brand new MeadowView Surgery Center received its Ambulatory Surgery Center license for Tennessee and completed its first cases this week.
Located on the second floor of the MeadowView Professional Center in Kingsport with three operating rooms, the center provides affordable, high-quality, outpatient surgical procedures in the Kingsport community, offering a variety of specialty procedures including total joint replacements.
“It’s important that our community is provided with surgical options which provide them with high-quality, cost effective alternatives which would not otherwise be available to them,” said Dr. Scott Fowler, President & CEO of Holston Medical Group.
One of the only of its kind in the area, this center allows HMG to continue to carry out its long-term plan to seek and implement new options for care that best meet the needs of patients and the community.
In order to begin seeing patients, MeadowView had to meet a number of key baseline center, safety and inspection requirements regulated by the State of Tennessee since its approval to begin building in late-2018.
“Now more than ever, our community needs access to high-quality, lower cost care which can also help get them back on their feet sooner to carry on with their daily life,” said Dr. Cheryl Stanski, General Surgeon, HMG. “We are excited to begin offering patients in the Kingsport community an option for outpatient procedures, allowing them to recover at home and potentially save thousands of dollars.”
After meeting additional milestones from the State that require a certain amount of cases to be completed, Meadowview is on track to seek and receive AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care) Accreditation for this facility later this year.
