Swift Institute, HOPCo, and Affiliated Partners Collaborate on New ASC Acquisition

Reno, NV – (December 1, 2023) – Swift Institute and Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company (HOPCo) announced the recent acquisition of the Surgery Center of Reno located in Northwest Reno. This acquisition is the result of the collaboration between Swift Institute and HOPCo as well as affiliated Center physicians, and Renown Health. 

The ambulatory surgical center, which will eventually be known as Swift Surgery Center, provides a high-quality and lower cost site of care for the greater Reno community. Swift Institute’s dedicated surgical team, which performs cases at the Center, will offer an elevated patient experience for services across several specialties, including orthopedics, spine, and interventional pain management.

“In partnering with Surgery Center of Reno, we see a lot of opportunity to strengthen and expand its offerings of an already great center,” said Ty Windfeldt, CEO of Swift Institute and HOPCo Nevada. “Ambulatory surgery centers can provide high-quality orthopedic and spine procedures, while simultaneously reducing costs for patients and payors. This collaboration allows our physicians to focus on giving superior care in an outpatient setting.” 

After its partnership with HOPCo, Swift Institute has quickly become the largest fully integrated musculoskeletal physician practice in Nevada.  HOPCo’s differentiated quality outcomes infrastructure and medical economics analytics has been deployed across the U.S. and proven to improve patient outcomes and increase savings across the total cost of musculoskeletal care. 

“The demand for more minimally invasive, cost-effective surgical options is at an all-time high,” explains James Lynch, M.D., Spine Neurosurgeon and President of Swift Institute. “Our physician partners will continue to be at the forefront of adopting new technologies and surgical techniques to elevate the outpatient services available to the Reno area and beyond.”
