New Kessler Surgery Center

 HAMMONTON — According to representatives of Community Healthcare Associates LLC (CHA), which owns Kessler Medical Arts Complex located at the former Kessler Memorial Hospital on the White Horse Pike (Route 30), a surgery center with four new operating rooms will be available for operations within a 60-day time period. The surgery center is called Ambulatory Surgical Pavilion of New Jersey, according to an ad placed in this week’s Gazette by CHA.
“We’re looking to recruit additional surgeons from the local region who would be interested in operating out of a community-based surgery center. We don’t believe there is a surgery center within a half hour of us,” Community Healthcare Associates LLC member E. Stephen Kirby told The Gazette.

The ad in this week’s Gazette reads as follows: “The Ambulatory Surgical Pavilion of NJ is a State Licensed Ambulatory Surgical Center. With four operating rooms, it will be committed to providing patients with the highest level of care in the fields of minimally invasive surgery, including but not limited to pain management, orthopedic surgery, spinal surgery, plastic surgery, hand surgery, podiatric surgery, nerve reconstruction, oral surgery, and other ambulatory care procedures.
Anyone interested in working at or with the new surgery center should call 567-6800 to schedule a tour, the ad said. The surgery center is looking to hire locally, Kirby said.

According to Kirby, the operating rooms and associated space for offices and waiting rooms will take up approximately 14,000 square feet of the 99,000-square-foot facility, which has 80,000 square feet of usable space, Kirby said,
Kessler Memorial Hospital closed in March of 2009 and has been vacant since, with the exception of a satellite emergency department that AtlantiCare operated at the location before moving to a new facility in 2011.

Kirby said he looked forward to seeing the surgery center open at Kessler Medical Arts Center and said more tenants will be opening at the location in the coming months.
“More than $2,000,000 has been invested in the buildout for the surgery center alone. The final equipment decisions for the surgery center will be made by the surgeons who operate the facility. We know that there is going to be a sleep center in the facility as well. Construction is progressing on the sleep center right now. A free-standing reference laboratory is also in negotiations as well as other tenants,” Kirby said,
