A ribbon cutting May 25 officially marked the completion of the 23,150-square-foot The Surgery Center of Granger.

Ground was broken in October 2021 on the $15.1 million facility on 4.65 acres at the north side of Beacon Parkway near the Indiana Toll Road entrance and Capital Avenue.

Beacon Health System and Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Center officials were on hand to celebrate the achievement that took more than a year of planning.

“We have partnered together to be community leaders for comprehensive orthopedic surgical care,” said Diane Maas, chief strategy and digital growth officer at Beacon Health System, in a press release. “With advanced technologies and outstanding care, quality, safety and patient experience as our top priorities, we anticipate The Surgery Center of Granger will serve as a regional destination for orthopedics, spine and pain management.”

The building houses four operating rooms, a procedure room and 20 patient recovery bays. There is also room for two more operating rooms, another procedure room and up to 10 more bays.

“Orthopedic surgeries are increasingly shifting away from hospital inpatient settings to outpatient ambulatory surgery centers, where highly skilled orthopedic specialists and support teams diagnose and treat injuries, conditions and disorders using the most advanced instrumentation and technology,” said Dr. John Huchko, medical director of The Surgery Center of Granger. “Our facility will advance high-quality and high-value care by enhancing access and affordability while improving the health of our communities.”

Physicians and staff gave input into the layout and design of the facility that went through several iterations before building began. South Bend-based Panzica Building Corp. was the project manager.

“The combined strengths of the Beacon Bone & Joint and OSMC teams will mean comprehensive care for patients, whether they have an acute injury or have been living with chronic pain,” said Dan Gartee, chief executive officer of OSMC. “Our board-certified and fellowship-trained specialists can help with everything from interventional pain management to orthopedic procedures, including total joint replacements, for bone, joint and spine injuries and conditions.”

Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Center of Northern Indiana Inc., which has served Michiana since 1973, has 25 providers of orthopedic services at locations in Elkhart, Goshen, Middlebury, Nappanee and Granger.

Beacon Health System is a nonprofit health care system that employs about 9,000 health care workers at hospitals and medical facilities in the Michiana area.
