Beacon Ambulatory Surgery Center Visitor Status Update: Starting Monday, May 23, Beacon’s Ambulatory Surgery Centers will allow 1 visitor per patient in the waiting rooms. Both vaccinated and non-vaccinated patients are still required to wear a mask. Our staff will also be required to wear a mask in the surgery center setting. We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we continue to navigate through the effects of COVID-19.
Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine offers patients the option to have their orthopedic surgical procedure performed in the Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) at the Summit Woods or Beacon West locations. We also offer hand & wrist surgeries to be performed at our outpatient Clifton Hand Surgery Center, in partnership with TriHealth. Our ASCs provide patients with the ability to have their surgery in a safe environment outside of the stress at a hospital operating room. In an outpatient setting, patients also typically go home the same day or sooner than surgeries taking place in a hospital setting. The ASCs have a unique setting with viewing rooms where families can see the OR environment and watch the procedure being performed. Each family is accompanied by a viewing room attendant that explains the procedures step by step.

Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC)
Our facilities are equipped with 23-hour nursing care rooms for patients who require an extended recovery. The ASC staff is cross-trained to work pre-operatively, in the OR, and in post-op. This gives the entire staff the ability to provide patients total quality care.
Physicians Anesthesia Service provides Beacon with a select group of anesthesia providers that are also specialized in musculoskeletal procedures and are proficient in providing peripheral nerve blocks for postoperative pain control.
The ASC is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Meeting the standards of AAAHC demonstrates a commitment to quality and a deep concern for those we serve.
Unfortunately during this time, we are not allowing visitors in our state-of-the-art viewing rooms. Starting Monday, May 23, Beacon will allow 1 visitor per patient in the waiting rooms. We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we continue to navigate through the effects of COVID-19.
At Beacon’s Summit Woods Surgery Center, all operating rooms are connected to private viewing rooms where patient’s family/friends can watch procedures as they’re performed. These rooms are equipped with televisions to show what the physician is working on, an attendant to explain what the physician is doing, and a phone so that the viewer can speak with the physician post-surgery to discuss how the procedure went. Not all procedures can be viewed by family members or friends, and this discretion is up to the operating physician.
We are excited to offer patients the chance to stay in one of Beacon’s 23-hour Recovery Suites. Procedures traditionally performed in an expensive hospital setting can now be done in our specialized facility in operating rooms designed for the procedures. Many patients are released within a few hours of surgery, but for overnight patients, nursing staff works overnight to monitor patients and assure all their medical care needs are met.
Total hip and total knee replacements, total shoulder replacements, total ankle replacements, and minimally invasive spine surgeries can now be done at Beacon’s convenient outpatient surgery center. Now you can be home either the same day or the next day and be on the road to recovery sooner.
This new alternative is a high quality, cost-effective solution for many patients.
Throughout the stay for one of these procedures, patients will have the chance to meet with the surgeon and team, meet the anesthesiologist, have the procedure, meet the physical therapy team dedicated to their rehabilitation and begin therapy- all in the comfort of a luxurious patient suite with refreshments and a dining menu for patients and guests. All rooms are stocked with refreshments and snacks, as well as flat-screen TVs and private restrooms.

Our goal is to provide you with the information needed to navigate the complex health insurance & billing field. Our patient advocates are here to assist with any questions you may have regarding this information. At Beacon, we require the prepayment of any estimated patient responsibility amounts prior to the service being performed. Depending on your insurance benefits, you may have a deductible, coinsurance, or co-pay. Our patient advocates may be contacting you regarding your estimated out of pocket costs to set up payment arrangements.
When you have surgery, you will likely receive multiple bills. These bills can include:
- Professional Charges — Professional charges are the fees that are paid to the physician for performing the surgery. For assistance with these fees, please contact the appropriate patient advocate associated with the physician that will be performing your surgery.
- Facility Charges — Facility charges are the fees from the building where the surgery was performed which cover the costs of medications, implants, and supplies. These can come from the Surgery Center or Hospital, depending on where your care is performed. For assistance with the Beacon Surgery Center’s fees, contact our representative at the number listed above.
- Anesthesia Charges — Anesthesia charges are the fees from the anesthesiologists’ services during your surgery and recovery. If performed at our Surgery Center, these bills will come from Seven Hills Anesthesia Group Practice. For questions regarding anesthesia charges, contact our representative at 513-862-2432.
The quoted amounts due for surgery are only estimates. The patient’s charges can fluctuate depending on changes in the patient’s benefits or the procedure performed. If the amount quoted is less than what is actually due, the patient will be required to pay the difference after the surgery. If the amount quoted is higher than the actual amount, the patient will receive a refund in a timely manner. Questions regarding the Surgery Authorization? Please contact your physician’s surgery scheduler to discuss.
