OSF HealthCare is investing in an ambulatory surgical center in Champaign, Illinois, as part of its strategic growth plan in the community.
The joint venture will see OSF partner with Sid Rohrscheib, MD, an independent general surgeon who currently performs surgeries at OSF HealthCare Heart of Mary Medical Center in Urbana as well as various other locations. OSF will own a majority interest of Olympian Surgical Suites, while Dr. Rohrscheib will be a minority owner.
The facility is located at 1002 Interstate Drive in Champaign and is owned by another entity. OSF Heart of Mary will be seeking the appropriate state and regulatory approvals to pursue this joint venture.
“We are committed to the Champaign-Urbana community, and this is one example of how we are investing in new care pathways for residents in Champaign County,” said J.T. Barnhart, president of OSF Heart of Mary. “More and more, insurance companies nationwide are starting to dictate that certain procedures, such as colonoscopies, cannot be done inside hospitals. So for the long-term viability of the OSF HealthCare community presence and ensuring our patients can receive the care they need, we wanted to make sure our patients have the option to stay within OSF HealthCare for their care.”

“We anticipate no disruption to patient care at this point,” Barnhart added. “Once the dust settles, we will reevaluate any opportunities to relocate outpatient services to the new building. We also look forward to this center providing additional opportunities to partner with physicians in the community.”
