Unity Assumes Ownership of Linden Oaks Surgery Center

Unity Health System closed on the purchase of the Linden Oaks Surgery Center located at 10 Hagen Drive in Penfield. It is now called Unity Linden Oaks Surgery Center.

The freestanding surgical center was purchased from its founder, Vito Quatela, M.D., who will remain the medical director. Likewise, 51 Linden Oaks employees are now on Unity’s payroll.
 
“This freestanding, multi-specialty outpatient surgery center provides added convenience and choice to the large number of Unity patients who live on the east side of Monroe County,” said Stewart Putnam, president Health Care Services Division, Unity Health System. “The Unity Linden Oaks Surgery Center allows us to further our continuum of care, maximize our surgical capacity across two settings, and meet the projected future needs of our community’s population,” Putnam added.
 
Linden Oaks Surgery Center opened in 2004. It has four operating rooms, four procedure rooms, and fully equipped preoperative and post-anesthesia care areas. The Center has a stellar reputation for quality, safety, and patient convenience and comfort, and is staffed by many physicians representing a broad range of surgical specialties. The Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare, Inc.
