Open House Planned for Texas Health Stephenville Outpatient Surgical Center|
STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Stephenville invites community members to an open house at Texas Health Outpatient Surgery Center Stephenville. The facility previously operated as the Surgical and Endoscopic Center of Stephenville.
The event will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. on Feb. 25. Refreshments will be served. The facility is located at 140 River North Boulevard. Texas Health Stephenville is co-hosting the event as a Chamber of Commerce mixer.
On Jan. 1, Texas Health Stephenville acquired the center from Stephenville Medical & Surgical Clinic. The clinic continues to operate independently. Teams have been working since July on integrating the outpatient surgical operations with those provided at the hospital.
“The integration of the outpatient surgery center with our existing surgical capabilities at Texas Health Stephenville has gone very well,” said Christopher Leu, president of Texas Health Stephenville. “Employees and physicians on the medical staff at both locations have worked diligently to ensure a smooth transition. We look forward to sharing this exciting time with members of the community on Feb. 25 and appreciate the Chamber of Commerce's support of our open house.”
One benefit being seen at the outpatient center is the implementation of the electronic health record. Texas Health Stephenville installed the electronic record system at the hospital last year and added it to the outpatient surgery center within days of the transaction closing. Now patient information can be viewed securely, and seamlessly, at either location.
There have been no major changes to the types of surgeries performed at either location. Texas Health Stephenville hired 11 employees from Surgical and Endoscopic Center of Stephenville.
