Monterey, CA, November 15, 2016 — Monterey Peninsula Surgery Centers (MPSC), one of the largest locally owned and operated outpatient surgery organizations in the United States, announced today the opening of the Minimus Institute, a national referral center offering state-of-the-art outpatient surgery to patients and self-insured groups throughout the country.
Although the majority of their patients reside in Northern and Central California, in the last five years, MPSC has become a national center attracting patients from 47 states and 10 countries seeking the most advanced minimally-invasive surgery. Through Minimus Institute, MPSC will extend the organization's outreach to formally become a national surgery referral center offering patient-focused surgical care in a concierge setting, featuring world-class surgeons and an innovative transparent pricing and outcome reporting system.
"Patients can visit our website at MontereySurgeryCenter.com to view prices, patient satisfaction scores and infection rates to help them make an informed decision regarding their surgery options," said Thomas D. Wilson, Managing Partner and CEO of MPSC. “Minimus provides patients an outstanding surgical experience with great value as measured by an optimum combination of quality, service and price. Because surgery is all we do, our hallmarks are efficiency, clarity and excellence. Our goal is to deliver surgery a better way. We strive to be pioneers in arming our patients with knowledge, including real-time data on outcomes, infection rates and satisfaction scores along with transparent pricing. We want to enable patients to make well-informed decisions."
By leveraging the organization’s high-quality care and excellent patient experience with transparent pricing and outcomes, Minimus seeks to demystify the patient/surgery/doctor interaction. Minimus's prime objective is to become recognized as a national destination surgery center or “beacon” for patients, insurance companies and self-insured groups seeking the most advanced and least invasive outpatient surgery in a setting featuring transparency, value and great outcomes.
