Fairfield Surgery Center, part of Orthopaedic Specialty Group, is National Surgical Hospital’s first presence in Connecticut and eighth ambulatory surgery center nationwide. The for-profit chain also owns and manages 13 specialty surgical hospitals.

The acquisition aligns with the company’s portfolio of surgery centers that mostly perform orthopedic procedures, Fisher said. Fairfield Surgery Center has two operating rooms and completes 1,400 orthopedic cases per year.

“Our focus is musculoskeletal, and [Fairfield Surgery Center] fits very much in that focus,” he said.
