Joining the CUSP for Safe Surgery (SUSP) Program

After the success of the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP), Specialty Surgical Center plans to join Johns Hopkins CUSP for Safe Surgery (SUSP) program in late April 2014. As a part of the National Improvement Projects, Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute offers this program as an opportunity for medical teams to become leaders in the national effort to reduce preventable complications that harm patients during surgery.

Specialty Surgical Center recognizes patient safety as the top priority during surgery. Located in Sparta, New Jersey, Specialty Surgical Center is one of the best outpatient surgery centers on the East Coast. The team offers numerous treatments for conditions in specialties of orthopedics, urology, gynecology, pain management, foot & ankle, and much more.

The SUSP program gives Specialty Surgical Center access to revolutionary tools and resources that help improve communication and teamwork in the surgical setting. Having already adopted the CUSP into their practice, Specialty Surgical Center is better able to tackle the hazards that often threaten patients during surgery. The SUSP program hosts a learning community with surgery teams from across the United States, sharing experiences, challenges, and solutions that will lead to a reduction in preventable harm.

Within this Johns Hopkins program, Specialty Surgical Center will be admitted into workshops and e-learning classes with the Armstrong Institute through August 2015. Continuing to research and develop ways to improve patient safety, Specialty Surgical Center hopes to raise awareness and be a leader in this national effort.

Specialty Surgical center is located in Sparta, NJ and is working toward eliminating the unknown factors of healthcare through safety measures and cost transparency. If you would like to learn more, please visit http://www.specialtysurgerycenter.org, or call 973-940-3166 for more information.
