Washington, PA hospital turns profit from specialty cases

Pittsburgh Live, December 19, 2011
With "fine cuisine" catered in for overnight patients and personalized service, Advanced Surgical Hospital touts itself as the Ritz-Carlton of hospitals. Owned by doctors, the Washington facility opened last year and turns a profit by being more efficient than traditional hospitals, CEO Lloyd Scarrow said. That means focusing on elective surgeries while turning away complicated cases in which the patient could end up needing emergency care. The hospital does not have an emergency room. "I'm not trying to be all things to all people," Scarrow said.
