, and a company official said additional projects could follow.

“We really get a lot of efficiencies at about four or five
centers in a region,” said Will McInturf, director of operations for the Costa
Mesa, Calif.-based firm. “That’s really our strike zone.

“What we’d like to do is establish a beachhead there in York, and then use that as kind of a model,” he said, to
market other locations in Central Pennsylvania.
The region has room for more ambulatory surgical centers because it had
relatively few to start with, McInturf said.

“You guys were way, way, way behind. OK? There was a huge
vacuum. For some reason, nobody built them there,” he said.

Congero also operates centers in California
and Texas. In
Congero’s model, doctors generally own more than 50 percent of the facilities,
McInturf said. It’s still a good time to build medical facilities because while
elective surgeries are down, people are not putting off treatments for
illnesses or injuries, which generally are covered by insurance, McInturf said.

The York
Township campus will
include office space and an ambulatory surgical center. The start of
construction on the 7.3 acre site at 2050
S. Queen St. was announced in December. Congero
plans three buildings. Financing is being provided by Lititz-based Susquehanna Bank.
