LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—"We are really excited about that recognition," said Administrator & Director for Unity Surgical Center Tami Robinson. "This is the first year for Ambulatory Surgical Centers to be ranked nationwide."

It was a collaboration through NewsWeek and a global marketing business forum. Both organizations assembled the data using various criteria including quality of care, peer recommendations and response to COVID-19.

"Unity Surgical Center is a multi-special facility," said Robinson. "We perform orthopedic, total joint and spine procedure."

An Ambulatory Center is an outpatient facility that performs surgical procedures the same day and patients are able to go home the same day of their surgery in the comfort of their own homes. Robinson said being ranked number one in the state is really exciting for the community.

"This is a statewide ranking so as an Ambulatory Surgery Center there's over 130 just in the State of Indiana and to be ranked number and to be ranked number one I think is just a real celebration and recognition of the strong team that we have here at Unity Surgical Center," said Robinson.

Orthopedic Surgeon at Unity Surgical Center Dan Daluga said it's an honor but he wasn't surprised.
"Our staff here is second to none the people are combined with talent, compassion and they just know how to take care of people," said Daluga.

Daluga said he hopes this ranking will increase the comfort level for current and future patients.
"I mean surgery is always a time of feeling nervous and tense but if you are going to a place that's ranked number one I mean that's got to make you feel good and make you feel more comfortable about undergoing a procedure," said Daluga.
Unity Surgical Center has about 40 surgeons that perform procedures and surgeries.
