Surgical Center Development

Extensive Expertise in Surgical Center Development


United Urology Group’s extensive expertise in building and managing ambulatory surgery centers began in 2006 when United Urology Group’s core affiliate, Chesapeake Urology, was formed, including its Summit ASCs. Since then, 18 state-of-the-art ASCs have been built. Today, our team of business, medical (physicians and nurses) and operations specialists collectively provide the managerial and operational support necessary to effectively build and manage a urologic ASC.

Our highly experienced Clinical Director, Brad Lerner, M.D., who is regarded in the national medical community as a progressive leader in surgical centers, has been leading the development and management of ASCs since 1990. He is responsible for the daily delivery of high quality, safe patient care through a broad range of clinical, business, regulatory and operational practices.
