Healthcare Real Estate Developer Joe Simone Says Increase in Knee Replacements Will Fuel Ambulatory Surgical Center Expansion

“The construction of ambulatory centers has been strong for years, but with the pandemic and innovations in surgical procedures, the demand for these facilities is exponentially expanding,” said Joe Simone.

A projected increase in knee replacement surgeries will fuel the growth of ambulatory surgical centers, according to healthcare real estate developer Joseph Simone.

“We are experiencing a revolution in knee replacement technologies that are allowing doctors to perform minimally invasive surgeries that do not require hospital settings,” said Joe Simone, President of the Simone Development Companies, a leading developer of healthcare facilities.

“For real estate developers, that means we will see greater demand for new ambulatory surgical centers as increasing numbers of the active elderly seek solutions to joint pain.”

In June, Renub Research Analysis published a report on the global knee replacement market. Renub predicted that in the United States, the value of knee replacements will rise from $8.02 billion in 2020 to $12.87 billion by 2027, a compound annual growth rate of 6.99%.

“Knee replacements will become more common and most of them will occur in the types of ambulatory surgical centers that Simone Development Companies have built, such as the Montefiore Hutchinson Campus in the Bronx, NY,” said Joseph Simone. “By 2040, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that 78 million adults in the U.S. will be diagnosed with arthritis.”

Patient interest in ambulatory surgical centers accelerated during the Covid-19 pandemic, when many hospitals were closed to patients who did not need life-saving interventions. Many patients who needed elective surgery like knee replacements were also reluctant to enter any facility that resembled a hospital for fear of contracting Covid-19.

“The construction of ambulatory centers has been strong for years, but with the pandemic and innovations in surgical procedures, the demand for these facilities is exponentially expanding,” said Joe Simone. “We are actively partnering with hospitals and other healthcare providers to identify locations for new construction.”

Simone Development Companies is a fully integrated private real estate investment and development company that acquires and develops healthcare, mixed-use, commercial, industrial, retail and residential properties. Headquartered at the Hutchinson Metro Center, it boasts a portfolio of over seven million square feet throughout the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, Long Island, Westchester, Orange and Fairfield Counties and New Jersey.

Doctors and Patients Agree That Knowledge Is The Strongest Weapon To Overcome Fibroids


FreeFromFibroids.org

Our mission is to raise awareness and empower women with all of the information to make a decision that’s best for them.

As part of its #DontLoseUrU campaign, the Free From Fibroids Foundation hosted a livestream roundtable with Act.TV to raise awareness of all available treatment options for uterine fibroids and to support H.R. 2007, the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Uterine Fibroid Research & Education Act of 2021.

WATCH: CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE FULL LIVESTREAM DISCUSSION.

The livestream event was hosted by Adrianna Hopkins of WJLA-TV in Washington, DC, and featured John C. Lipman, MD, FSIR, Founder and Chairman of FFF, as well as Paula Gwynn Grant, a board member of the foundation. In addition, three patient advocates participated by sharing their stories of living with fibroids and getting their life back after treatment.

The mission of the Free From Fibroids Foundation is to empower women with information about all of their treatment options as they battle uterine fibroids. The foundation is using the month of July, which is Fibroid Awareness month, to challenge the medical community’s outdated knee-jerk treatment of uterine fibroids with hysterectomy.

Last week, patients shared their journey battling fibroids and receiving non-surgical UFE treatment.

Dr. Lipman, the founder of the Free From Fibroids Foundation, said, “For over 25 years there has been a safe, proven method of treating fibroids that doesn’t involve surgery, and yet many women do not know this option exists. The stories I hear every day in my office just break my heart because the medical gatekeepers have promoted life-altering hysterectomies over other treatment options, like UFE, and the result is that women have lost their uterus when they didn’t need to. Our mission is to raise awareness and empower women with all of the information to make a decision that’s best for them.”

Paula Gwynn Grant, a board member of the foundation, said, “This is a topic that can be uncomfortable to discuss in public but we must have more public conversations like this because no women should have to suffer in silence with fibroids. We will continue to raise awareness and work to pass H.R. 2007 but that is just the first step. Our foundation is committed to helping women be their own health advocates and changing the landscape so hysterectomy is no longer the front-line treatment for fibroids.”

DayBreak’s Innovation to Reduce Emergency Services Usage is Honored with John A. Hartford Foundation Award from n4a


The Rapid Response Case Management (Rapid Response) program of DayBreak Adult Care Centers (DayBreak) received honorable mention for a Business Innovation Award for helping to create an age-friendly community in Alameda County.

In the first year of the program, Rapid Response improved healthcare and social support services for 70 clients, which reduced their frequent use of 911, EMS and emergency rooms, resulting in an estimated $2 million savings in hospital costs.

The innovative model demonstrates the catalyzing role that community-based organizations like DayBreak can take to drive meaningful change.

Business Innovation Award, Honorable Mention:

The National Association of Area Agencies on Aging’s (n4a) Aging and Disability Business Institute presented DayBreak with The John A. Hartford Foundation 2021 Business Innovation Award Honorable Mention for its Rapid Response Case Management program. The award was presented at n4a’s 46th Annual Conference and Tradeshow on July 21, 2021.

“Rapid Response is a model for how local agencies, community organizations and nonprofits can work together to improve lives,” said Ofra Paz, Executive Director of DayBreak. “We are honored to be recognized by n4a’s Aging and Disability Business Institute and The John A. Hartford Foundation. They share our commitment to better care for older adults that lowers overall costs.”

“We applaud the nominee organizations, all of whom are indispensable to their communities and have shown great ingenuity resilience and resourcefulness,” said Terry Fulmer, PhD, RN, FAAN, President of The John A. Hartford Foundation. “This award hopes to inspire all community-based organizations to create age-friendly partnerships with hospitals, health plans and with one another through regional networks.”

Rapid Response Improves Lives and Communities:

In many communities, there are people who call 911 frequently because they lack access to health care and social services. Instead, they use emergency medical services weekly or more frequently. Frequently, these are vulnerable, older adults with complex health and social needs, who are also low-income.

Rapid Response addresses the needs of these high-utilization people. Rapid Response connects clients with much-needed health and social supports and provides ongoing case management, reducing the use of 911 and hospital emergency rooms for these needs.

In Alameda County, California, the Rapid Response partnership includes Alameda County Emergency Medical Services (EMS), area hospitals, fire departments, Adult Protective Services, community-based organizations, and DayBreak. This strategic partnership of 20 organizations launched in 2018, with the goal of reducing the high utilization of EMS by older adults for non-emergency issues.

DayBreak facilitated the design process for Rapid Response. DayBreak invited local partners to an ongoing series of workshops to design the solution together.

Key to the program’s success in Alameda County is fast referrals. DayBreak professionals meet clients at the hospital shortly after the client calls 911 and EMS is contacted.

At the hospital, DayBreak assesses the person’s unmet needs. DayBreak then draws on the local network to bring in the needed services and supports. This allows the client to leave the hospital and safely go home, where they can live independently and healthier – with the right supports in place. DayBreak continues to follow-up with each client to ensure their wellbeing.

Replicating Rapid Response:

“Our goals are to help more elders in the East Bay, and to support other communities in designing Rapid Response for their specific needs. We view our role as that of facilitator, not program owner. We guide disparate teams to find common ground and co-create solutions. These solutions improve health, energize teams and lift-up communities,” said Ofra Paz.

Beginning with only a small amount of seed money in 2018, DayBreak secured additional grant funding and hired a team of full-time staff to support the program.

About DayBreak

DayBreak Adult Care Centers (“DayBreak”) improves the lives of vulnerable older adults and their family caregivers. In addition to the Rapid Response Case Management program, key programs include:


  • Co-op adult day community pilot program, where caregivers can donate volunteer hours in exchange for respite care;
  • Caring-for-the-Caregiver education series;
  • Senior injury- and fall-prevention programs;
  • Phone counseling and assistance for seniors and caregivers.

The healthcare AI startup that helps patients better stay on top of their health, Abridge, announced a partnership with the University of Montreal AI research institute Mila. The collaboration will deepen research contributions to the rapidly evolving field of medical conversation understanding and expand Abridge’s machine learning capabilities.

“Our mission at Abridge is to help people understand and follow-through on their health — much of which is powered by machine learning,” said Sandeep Konam, CTO and co-founder of Abridge. “From our earliest days, our goal has been to advance medical conversation AI and improve healthcare delivery experiences for people and their doctors. Our partnership with Mila gives us the opportunity to expand our research and continue to engage with leading innovators. The progress we make together will benefit many more people than either of us might reach on our own.”

Abridge highlights the key details of medical conversations, including instructions, medications, and follow-ups, making it easier to revisit important details and share the conversation with family. Abridge also shares clinically structured summaries with health professionals to help them save time and focus on patient experiences and outcomes. To solve complex challenges in understanding and summarizing medical conversations, the company invested upfront in annotating a one-of-a-kind, de-identified dataset containing over 10,000 hours of transcribed conversations from fully informed and consenting patients. Using this rich dataset, they built domain adaptation modules that can correct transcription errors, classifiers that can flag key takeaways, and language generation models that can create actionable summaries. Abridge contributes regularly to premier machine learning conferences and workshops, in the spirit of promoting open research and collaborating closely with academic communities.

Mila’s dedication to the socially responsible and beneficial development of AI closely aligns with Abridge’s commitment to ensuring that their technology is distributed fairly to all groups and will lead to more medical comprehension for everyone. “Since our founding, we’ve been committed to solving problems according to people’s real needs and pursuing the development of AI for social good,” said Yoshua Bengio of Mila. “That’s why we’re looking forward to partnering with Abridge — not only for our shared focus on machine learning, but also because we are both dedicated to developing technology responsibly and in service of others.”

Boston IVF and Reproductive Care Center Announce New Partnership


Reproductive Care Center

Both Boston IVF and Reproductive Care Center have a shared vision to deliver the highest quality of integrated, holistic care and help our patients become parents in the shortest time possible.

Boston IVF, a pioneer in reproductive healthcare and innovative research, announced it has entered into a partnership with Reproductive Care Center, a leading provider of fertility and family-building services in Utah and Idaho.

As individuals and couples continue to seek reproductive care across the country at historically high levels during the COVID-19 pandemic, the new partnership enables Reproductive Care Center (RCC) to further enhance its standing as a clinical leader in the region. Boston IVF’s vast library of data analysis and clinical protocols lead to less time in treatment, less total cost, and an improved chance for success. Additionally, RCC and future patients will benefit from Boston IVF’s robust scientific team and international research program, which regularly conducts pioneering clinical trials that contribute to industry-wide improvements in all aspects of care – including egg and embryo development.

With the acquisition of RCC, Boston IVF continues to expand its national fertility network, which now includes over 30 reproductive endocrinologists across 30 centers nationwide. In March, Boston IVF acquired Ohio Reproductive Medicine, Central Ohio’s largest IVF program.

“We are pleased to welcome such a respected leader in reproductive medicine to the Boston IVF fertility network,” said David Stern, MBA – Chief Executive Officer of Boston IVF. “Both Reproductive Care Center and Boston IVF have a shared vision to deliver the highest quality of integrated, holistic care and help our patients become parents in the shortest time possible. RCC’s long history of scientific innovation and clinical success aligns perfectly with our business model, philosophy, and mission.”

As part of the new partnership, Reproductive Care Center – which operates four centers across Utah and Idaho – also welcomes incoming reproductive endocrinologist Kristi Maas, MD to its Salt Lake City-based team. Dr. Maas joins RCC from a leading Southern California fertility practice, where she played a significant role in assisting individuals and couples with their family-building needs. Additionally, her arrival at RCC/Boston IVF serves as a long-awaited reunion; Dr. Maas is a graduate of the prestigious Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Harvard Medical School/Boston IVF Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) Fellowship program, which trains the country’s top-tier fertility specialists.    

“It is very important for us to join forces with a leader that shares our vision of the future,” said James Heiner, MD – Reproductive Care Center founder and chief reproductive endocrinologist. “The RCC/Boston IVF partnership offers us the unique opportunity to implement substantial clinical, scientific, and operational enhancements that differentiate us from other centers and positively impact the lives of our patients. To add Boston IVF’s resources, experience, and reproductive lab science – which directly influences success rates – to an already highly-effective model of care is a significant and compelling opportunity for those in our local community who wish to build a family.”

“Boston IVF admires Reproductive Care Center’s desire to expand,” said Haryanto Hokianto, Vice President of Business Development at Boston IVF. “We applaud Dr. Keith Blauer and fellow RCC team members for their progressive vision of reproductive care and dedication to creating unique financing programs that help to make treatment affordable. As a strategic partner, it is important for our local physicians to operate autonomously and work collaboratively to grow the practice and enhance an already-superior level of RCC patient care in Utah and Idaho.”

ABOUT BOSTON IVF

Boston IVF is one of the largest and most experienced fertility networks in the United States, with more than 100,000 babies born since 1986. Founded as one of the nation’s first private practice IVF centers, the Boston IVF network has grown to include over 30 reproductive endocrinologists across 30 centers throughout Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Idaho, Indiana, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Utah. A renowned innovator of reproductive technologies, advanced protocols, and cutting-edge research, Boston IVF has achieved numerous “firsts” in the field of reproductive care. Its scientific and research arm continues to pave the way for breakthroughs in fertility care and its accredited REI Fellowship Program has graduated numerous reproductive endocrinologists as part of its mission to train the next generation of fertility experts. In 2019, this leading provider of fertility services in the United States was acquired by Eugin, one of the largest IVF networks in the world, with centers throughout Europe and South America.
