Congressman Tom Tiffany, State Lawmakers Tour Northwood Surgery Center as Part of National ASC Month

Wisconsin Congressman Tom Tiffany (WI-07), a Republican from Hazelhurst, recently visited the Northwood Surgery Center in  as part of the Association of Wisconsin Surgery Centers (WISCA) Capitol Connection program and to celebrate National Ambulatory Surgery Center (ACS) Month. He was joined by State Sen. Mary Felzkowski (R-Irma) and State Rep. Rob Swearingen (R-Rhinelander). WISCA’s Capitol Connection program aims to connect surgery center members with their local state and federal legislators to show them firsthand the benefits of the ASC model of care.

“We were thrilled to celebrate National Surgery Center Month by hosting Congressman Tiffany, Sen. Felzkowski, and Rep Swearingen for a tour of our surgery center,” said Jackie McLaughlin, RN, Administrator of the Northwoods Surgery Center. “Northwoods Surgery Center provides affordable, quality outpatient surgical care in a collaborative environment, and we were proud to showcase the ASC patient experience to the visiting lawmakers. We greatly appreciated their visit, their support for our center, and their acknowledgment of the hard work of our physicians, nurses, and employees to successfully carry out our vision.”

Northwoods Surgery Center is a partnership between Aspirus Wausau Hospital and local surgeons who created a joint ventured center of surgical excellence. The Center, which opened in 2008 and is certified by Medicare and the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, is committed to providing quality service and extraordinary outpatient surgical care to their patients. The Center has two operating rooms where specially trained, highly skilled physicians and their professional health care teams perform ophthalmology, orthopedic, pain management, and podiatry procedures.
