WICHITA, Kan. and AVENTURA, Fla., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Galichia Heart Hospital and Mobile Surgery International (MSI) have reached an agreement for Galichia to host MSI-coordinated, highly specialized, urologic surgical teams at its facilities in Wichita. This agreement, effective immediately, expands Galichia's capabilities as a center of excellence for selected types of specialty surgical care and expands MSI's ability to offer patients surgical choice in high quality facilities across the United States.
"This agreement with Mobile Surgery International has brought us immediate access to an advanced urologic cancer surgical program with no learning curve and little capital risk," said Stephen Harris, chief executive officer of Galichia Heart Hospital. "We have previously proven that Galichia is a medical destination for certain types of cardiovascular conditions. Now we are expanding the services we offer to patients, both locally and globally."
MSI will initially offer minimally invasive surgical services for prostate cancer and other forms of prostate surgery at Galichia. Additional services at Galichia may be made available through MSI over time.
"We are delighted to have implemented this agreement because Galichia Heart Hospital offered us the quality of surgical capabilities and facilities we consider essential," said Dr. Arnon Krongrad, chairman and chief executive officer of Mobile Surgery International. "The hospital's location in Wichita will be a convenient destination for many of the patients that MSI expects to treat, making it easier for patients to travel to and from such a center of excellence."
MSI continues to form relationships that will allow payers to fill gaps in network coverage and offer choice, quality and cost containment to their patient base.
