The Partner of Choice for Surgical Care

We were created in 1982 by Joel Gordon, a healthcare services pioneer, Andrew “Woody” Miller, an HCA executive, and Jack Massey, a co-founder of HCA and American venture capitalist.

After successfully becoming a national leader, our company was bought in 1997. We re-launched as a stand-alone company in 2007 and embarked on a nationwide, democratic process to select our values, as we also updated our mission and vision.

Our Values

Clinical Quality, Integrity, Service Excellence, Teamwork, Accountability, and Continuous Improvement

Our Mission

To care for our patients, serve our physicians, and improve healthcare in America.

Our Vision

To be the partner of choice for surgical care.

Today, we have grown to more than 210 surgical facilities, 8,500 teammates, and more than 7,500 physicians who perform 1 million procedures in SCA facilities each year.

In partnership with leading health systems, health plans & medical groups.

Our remarkable community of teammates, physician partners and health system partners are deeply committed to providing quality patient care and improving healthcare in America.

Our focus on building strategic relationships with our partners enables us to acquire, develop and optimize facilities in an aligned economic model that enables better access to high-quality care at lower cost.
