Barton buys Round Hill surgery center

The Barton HealthCare System is pleased to announce the partnership purchase of the Round Hill- based Lake Tahoe Surgery Center as of Feb. 19.

The parent company, National Surgical Company, that previously was the managing general partner, sold their 67 percent interest to Barton for an undisclosed amount. As with the previous arrangement, the minority interest remains with physician partners.

This new venture for the Barton HealthCare System fits within the strategic plan to enhance outpatient services and physician partnerships. This acquisition offers better continuity of care for our patients and enhances the communication process within the same system.

Lake Tahoe and Carson Valley residents now have an alternative for outpatient services within the Barton HealthCare System. Pricing remains competitive as a free-standing entity with services that are limited at this time to ambulatory surgery and pain management.

The facility operates Monday through Friday with surgeries scheduled for injuries and medical conditions that do not require hospitalization and the full compliment of services that come with that connection. The surgery center will maintain the same great staff you have come to appreciate but with the added benefit of “The Barton Way” guest relations training and outstanding Barton Hospital Surgery Department support.

The new ownership for the Barton HealthCare System stretches across state lines, providing patients alternatives for select surgeries and procedures as well as impacts insurance coverage for patients dealing with California or Nevada based companies. It is also in line with Barton’s mission of providing “Consistently Exceptional Care.”
