Presence Health closes surgery center

Chicago-based Presence Health closed Ambulatory Care Center for Excellence in Surgical Services in Danville, Ill., March 31.

The surgery center's annual losses were more than $1 million in each of the past two years due to dwindling patient volume, according to The News-Gazette, which cited Presence's application to close the facility filed with Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board.

In February, when Presence filed its application to close the facility, Presence Regional President and CEO Jared Rogers, MD, told The News-Gazette most of the procedures performed at the surgery center will continue to be offered at Presence United Samaritans Medical Center in Danville.
