Merritt Healthcare announces $10.2 million Mount Sinai outpatient development project

NEW YORK, May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Merritt Healthcare, the industry leader in the development, management and advisory of ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) nationwide, today announced its plan to develop a $10.2 million ASC with Mount Sinai Ambulatory Ventures, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the 3,800-bed New York area-based Mount Sinai Health System.

"Mount Sinai is a leading health system in the New York metropolitan area and is at the forefront of providing ambulatory services," said Kerri Ubaldi, Vice President of Operations at Merritt Healthcare. "We look forward to partnering with their talented team on this facility and delivering high-quality, convenient care to their patients."

The project is currently under consideration with the New York State Department of Health. Following approval of a certificate of need application, the gastroenterology-focused outpatient facility will have four procedure rooms and be utilized by 42 Mount Sinai-affiliated gastroenterologists, who are expected to see roughly 9,000 patients and perform about 10,000 procedures each year at the ASC.

Mount Sinai Ambulatory Ventures will own 85 percent of the leased facility and Merritt Healthcare will own 15 percent. The single-specialty ASC will be located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
