The state-of-the-art facility provides comprehensive care close to home.

Obtaining top-quality outpatient orthopedic services is more convenient than ever for central Connecticut residents, with the opening of the new Southington Surgery Center. The center, which began seeing patients in September, is a collaborative effort of MidState Medical Center, The Hospital of Central Connecticut and surrounding area physicians. It is located at 81 Meriden Ave. in Southington, on HOCC’s Bradley Memorial campus.

The new 10,200-square-foot facility features three sophisticated operating rooms, six preop- erative bays with private changing areas, eight postoperative bays and private exam rooms for consultations. It offers easy parking and its own separate entrance. “We took a hospitality approach with the design of this facility,” says Thomas Vaccarelli, director of facilities and support services for Hartford HealthCare’s Central Region. “The focus is on providing not only excellent care, but an excellent patient experience.”

“We are excited to provide these services at the Bradley Memorial campus,” says Lucille Janatka, president of Hartford HealthCare’s Central Region. “This is a prime example of how we are addressing health care needs in our community.”
