Premier Surgical Institute Hospital Announces 2015 Profit While Maintaining Less-Than-Traditional Pricing for Its World-Class Care

Plans Underway to Further Expand the Hospital's Surgical Offerings With Trademark Focus on Patient-Centered Care

GALENA, KS--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2015) - Premier Surgical Institute inpatient and outpatient hospital, located and owned by the city of Galena and serving Joplin, MO, as well as the entire Four State Area and beyond, announced today that after only two-and-a-half years in operation, it is reporting a 2015 profit while continuing to provide patients below-average pricing for its world-class care.

"We are uniquely structured to cater to our patients' needs, with friendly, individualized care, an impressive nurse-to-patient ratio that far exceeds traditional hospitals, and an environment designed to feel like a luxury vacation rather than a hospital stay," said Travis Roderick, CEO of Premier Surgical Institute, recruited from Dallas, TX, in August 2014 to manage and expand the hospital's original surgical offerings. "Patients are responding, and electing to have their surgeries here because of the elite service we provide for less cost to them, and with no-public emergency room or intake of patients with contagious illness or infectious diseases. This means our patients don't have to share our facility with general hospital populations, as they would in traditional hospitals."

Premier Surgical Institute was the recipient of the National Research Corporation Path to Excellence Award for its commitment to improving the patient experience, and is the hospital of choice for a growing roster of highly trained surgeons. Premier currently offers General Surgery, Neck-To-Toe Orthopedics and Sports Medicine exclusively by the surgeons of Orthopaedic Specialists of the Four States (Ortho Four States), Urologic, Gastrointestinal, Bariatric (Weight Loss Surgery), and Maxillofacial Surgeries as well as Pain Management, a no-wait Imaging Center and Wellness Offerings like free Weight Loss Surgery Seminars and Healthy Cooking classes. 

In August 2015, General Surgeon Eric Delman, DO, was recruited from California for his exceptional patient care, and as part of Premier's ongoing expansion to bring in top surgeons from around the country to provide additional surgical-line offerings. 

"Premier Surgical Institute has proven to be a win-win-win for patients, employees and the city," said Dale Oglesby, Mayor of the City of Galena. "Premier operates within the ecosystem of the Four State Professional Park campus, and has been providing a benefit to patients who affordably receive the highest standard of care, the 131 people the hospital employs, and the citizens of Galena, who are the recipients of the economic growth the hospital brings to the community."

In calendar 2015, Premier Surgical Institute performed 2,572 surgeries/procedures (as of 11/30/15), has contributed more than $1,000,000 in property taxes, and is reporting $176,000 in profit through the first 10 months of the year.

"For a hospital this young to be showing a profit of any kind -- and winning awards -- speaks volumes to what we are providing here, and a great indication of the demand that will follow our continued growth, which is well underway," said Roderick.
