We Specialize In Efficient Operations
As a physician or health care professional, you’ll benefit from a partnership with Surgical Management Professionals, LLC (SMP), a company with 25 years of proven expertise in single- specialty and multi-specialty surgery centers and specialty hospitals. At SMP, we leverage the expertise of our member physicians and executives to create opportunities for talented professionals like you who share our vision to own, control, and manage surgery care facilities.
A Healthy History Of Surgical Center Expertise
When you partner with SMP, you’ll benefit from an organization that has adapted to meet and stay ahead of the ever-changing challenges of creating convenient, affordable access to patient care through state-of-the-art centers. The foundation for SMP was established with the Sioux Falls (SD) Surgical Center, the first multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center in South Dakota. The organization’s leadership team built a solid reputation for assisting in the development of surgical centers and surgical hospitals. Emerging as a separate, primarily physician-owned business entity in 2004, the SMP of today leverages the advantages of hospital and ASC experience plus surgeon ownership to assist you with a full scope of services. These services range from feasibility studies and development contracts to comprehensive ongoing contracts with surgical centers.
Creative Minds On A Mission
While SMP does not require equity ownership in our affiliated centers, we are ready and willing to act as a committed partner with you to become small equity owners in these facilities. To fulfill this mission, SMP will:
- Assist in the development of a comprehensive surgical facility vision
- Offer expertise in designing, building and operating a state-of-the-art surgical facility
- Develop a culture of quality, service and efficiency
- Manage the day-to-day challenges of a surgical facility, as well as the long term strategic positioning required for physician and community confidence
- Provide a facility for physician owners and practitioners that stresses efficiency, demonstrates quality and encourages productivity
Our Business Model. Your Vision.
Our unique business model not only helps to set us apart from any competitive resource, it also reflects our dedication to helping you achieve success. We’ve been in your shoes, and because of this, we know what it takes to help you manage a productive and profitable future within a surgery center environment. We encourage you to think of us as:
- A mentor
- A partner
- Sounding board
- Someone who wants you to succeed
Recently, SMP has been approached by mature centers to become an equity partner. The advantage of working with SMP is we firmly believe that a majority of the ownership should stay with local physicians. Our investment model is different than that of the publicly traded corporations. We allow local physicians the opportunity to invest with SMP, and we approach the transaction as a true partnership rather than as an owner-subsidiary model. Additionally, we bring expertise, rather than just money, to the table.
