About The San Antonio Surgery Center of Excellence
Unparalleled Transparency in Surgery
The San Antonio Surgery Center of Excellence was born from a simple, honest desire: to put patients’ best interests first – without corporate or financial obstacles.
Today’s large healthcare systems are often beholden to interests other than patients’ health, and we saw it first-hand.
Corporate interests tended to privilege what is cost-effective over what is health-effective.
Doctors were forced to do the cheap thing instead of the right thing.
Surgeons were encouraged to give up and move on to the next patient.
We knew there had to be a better way.
Most doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers entered medicine out of an authentic desire to care for people – not to increase profit margins.
We gathered the best and most compassionate of these professionals, eliminated corporate and financial obstacles, and created the San Antonio Surgery Center of Excellence as south-central Texas’ first ambulatory surgery center dedicated to putting the patient first.
Authentic, compassionate patient care demands caring for all aspects of patient outcomes, and we refuse to pretend that finances don’t factor into that.
We believe this patient-centered approach has been a long time coming in healthcare. We also believe you’ll love the difference it makes.
