SURGICAL CENTER OF ELIZABETHTOWN OWNED BY HMH ACCEPTS MEDICARE
On Sunday December 23, 2012 a public notice was printed in the News-Enterprise announcing that “The Surgical Center of Elizabethtown LP, d/b/a as the Surgical Center of Elizabethtown located at 108 Financial Drive, Elizabethtown Kentucky 42701 will no longer participate in the Medicare Program (Title XVIII of the Social Security Act), effective November 22, 2012.” Surgical Care Affiliates sold the Surgical Center of Elizabethtown to Hardin Memorial Hospital November 23, 2012.
Surgical Care Affiliates published this notice in response to a federal law that requires medical providers to publicly announce when they stop accepting Medicare. Since Surgical Care Affiliates no longer operates the Surgical Center of Elizabethtown they no longer accept Medicare. Hardin Memorial Hospital who now owns and operates the Surgical Center of Elizabethtown does accept Medicare and will continue to accept Medicare at this location and at all hospital locations. If you have any questions concerning the statement in the paper please feel free to contact Greg Rovinski, Assistant Vice President at (270) 706-5048.
