East Brunswick, NJ (PRUnderground) October 27th, 2020
The Specialized Surgical Center of Central New Jersey, LLC announced today that it has officially opened its doors at a new location and will continue to perform a wide range of Ophthalmic outpatient surgical procedures at the center to meet the growing health needs of the community.
With this launch, the Specialized Surgical Center of Central New Jersey, formerly known as the Somerset Eye Institute, PC, joins the Virtua Health family which, according to a recent Newsweek study, has some of the highest rated surgical centers in the country.
“I was fortunate to have my first opportunity to operate at our new facility, the first time two surgeons were operating at the same time, something which could never happen in our former facility, as good as it was,” said Medical Director, Dr. Joseph Calderone. “I was impressed at the potential this new facility has to offer. Our patients have also had very favorable opinions, especially those having surgery on their second eyes at the new facility.”
The center, which has relocated to a larger facility (approximately 10,000 square feet) with 3 operating rooms at 41 Arthur Street, East Brunswick, currently is dedicated to ophthalmic surgical procedures with the capacity to expand to additional specialties. The latest state-of-the-art technologies include a Femtosecond laser, housed in a separate procedure room allows for more efficient patient care and optimal use of the newest technology. The center previously was located at 562 Easton Ave in Somerset, NJ.
The benefits of performing surgical cases in an ambulatory setting include patient and physician convenience and safety, utilizing the most advanced technologies available, in a cost-effective setting.
“Wonderful people took great care of me at SSCCNJ” said patient Janna Thompson-Lee. “Everyone was available to answer my questions and put me at ease. A very efficiently run operation!”
