HOI Completes $3 Million Expansion, Re-Design Of ASC in Orange

  • Posted On:

Hoag Orthopedic Institute (HOI), which performs the most joint replacements in the Western United States, has completed a year-long $3 million expansion, redesign and equipment upgrade to its Main Street Specialty Surgery Center in Orange, California. The expansion was undertaken for increased capacity at the facility to meet the demand of outpatient total joint replacement and spine surgery for HOI orthopedic surgeons.

The 15,000-square-foot facility is one of three ambulatory surgery centers HOI owns and operates in Orange County with a fourth center scheduled to open in early 2023, in addition to its inpatient hospital in Irvine and one surgery center in Los Angeles County.

Two operating rooms were expanded to meet the need for state-of-the art equipment and processes to accommodate increasing demand for total joint replacement and spine surgeries at HOI. The redesign included an area for a Post Anesthesia Care Unit, an overnight space and a new lobby design. It also included an investment in new infection control technology, as well as an improved floorplan for better flow of staff and patients.

“Our orthopedic and spine surgeons are performing more outpatient joint replacement and spine cases, so we wanted to enhance our ambulatory surgery center “ASC” to ensure the community had improved access to our cutting-edge facilities, technology, and world-class surgeons” said Michael Shepard, M.D., an orthopedic sports medicine surgeon at HOI. “As one of the leaders in the move to providing patient access to more outpatient total joint replacement surgeries, we’re pleased to have an updated facility that is specifically designed for surgeons, patients and their families.”

As part of the development at its ASC location in Orange HOI also hired additional staff members. In 2021, the surgery center performed more than 8000 surgeries, with the vast majority treating Orthopedic, Pain and Spine conditions.
