We Are SpecialtyCare
Why SpecialtyCare? It’s simple. We are a great company because we employ the best people who deliver exceptional outcomes in the operating room. We are a leading provider of outsourced OR support services, participating in 400,000 procedures annually, supporting 13,500 physicians in more than 1,100 hospitals.
Our expert clinicians are highly trained, certified, and work as integrated members of any OR team. We help build operating rooms of excellence by staying true to what we do best: perfusion, intraoperative neuromonitoring, autotransfusion, sterile processing consulting, surgical assist, and minimally invasive surgical support.
How SpecialtyCare Provides Value
Hospitals are always exploring the best ways to cut costs while maintaining exceptional patient care. In fact, a survey conducted by Black Book Research concludes that nine out of 10 hospitals now consider outsourcing to provide value-based care that doesn’t sacrifice quality. Overall, hospital leaders need to reduce costs 24 percent by 2022 just to break even. Ninety-eight percent of hospital leaders surveyed are weighing the opportunity to work with third-party vendors for both clinical and non-clinical functions
This is where SpecialtyCare provides tremendous value to the operating room. Our mission is to support surgeons and medical facilities with highly skilled people, best-in-class equipment, and rich, expansive data that drives improved clinical outcomes – all while reducing overall costs. We offer highly competitive, value-based purchasing and pricing on equipment and disposables—and our dedicated biomed team maintains our equipment, saving hospitals over $30,000 each year for every operating room that we service. We build efficient operating rooms of excellence.
We Do the Hiring, Training and More
Hospitals spend an incredible amount of time and money in an effort to fill their operating room with the most talented, highly qualified and dependable people. Our in-house human resources and marketing team work in tandem to produce recruitment pieces, social media collateral and ads. SpecialtyCare takes on all of the costs of finding the best people, paying them competitive salaries and providing great benefits.
Once we find the best people, we put a tremendous effort into keeping them. We invest in our associates with a superior training program that ensures each is prepared for their role in the OR. We continue to invest in our associates and their professional growth with a tuition reimbursement and student loan payment assistance program, a dedicated allowance for professional development and certification test preparation and support. We empower our associates daily and provide resources to champion higher levels of clinical competence, which directly impacts patient care.
SpecialtyCare is your partner for high-quality outcomes, patient safety, and optimal financial results. Our expert clinicians are highly trained, certified, and work as integrated members of your team, dedicated to helping make your OR operate as efficiently as possible. We accomplish this by staying true to what we do best: perfusion, intraoperative neuromonitoring, autotransfusion, sterile processing management, surgical assist, and minimally invasive surgical support. When you want the certainty of clinical excellence, choose SpecialtyCare.

Focused on Key Beliefs
As a leader in the healthcare industry, we operate on a number of core beliefs that drive results and keep us focused on the things that matter most. We never lose sight of the fact that our top priority is to the people entrusted to our care—patients and families who deserve our utmost effort and respect. We want our customers to feel at ease, confident, and certain about our capabilities—and we want to connect with them as members of the same team, working toward the same goals. We are physicians, perfusionists, neurophysiologists, and clinical specialists. We are trainers, recruiters, analysts, and schedulers. We all have family and friends, and we want them to receive the best possible care when they need it. We want that for our patients, too. We are more than 2,000 strong. We are SpecialtyCare.
Our People are Awesome
We bet you don’t hear many companies describe their associates as awesome. Well, we do, because they are. From our perfusionists to surgical neurophysiologists to surgical assistants, our associates all have these commonalities: They are dedicated, passionate about making a difference in healthcare, strive for excellence, and always put the patient first. Always.
The Patient Comes First. Always.
We believe in patient-centered care, meaning our priority always is improving our patients’ OR experience and surgical outcomes. When a patient is in our care, we know that their illness impacts not only their immediate family, but their friends, co-workers, and community. When we care for a patient, we are affecting thousands of people. We don’t take this responsibility lightly. We are focused on providing each patient with the exceptional care they need and deserve. Our goal is to get them back to all of those who matter to them – safely and quickly with as little downtime as possible. Patient outcomes are at the center of everything we do – from the training of our associates, to the data we collect and distribute.
This is the culture we create at SpecialtyCare. The patient comes first for every associate here, whether they have direct contact or provide a different service. We believe that everyone – whether they serve in administrative roles, marketing, information systems, or accounting – plays a vital role in patient care.
Data Drives Continuous Improvement
We collect data every day for every procedure, giving us the largest procedural database of its kind. This rich, robust data gives our medical staff the information they need to confidently identify standards, set benchmarks, disseminate best practices, and foster innovation in the OR. Status quo is never enough. We utilize SpecialtyCare OptimizeOR™, a user-friendly decision support and analytics system to help hospitals improve efficiency in perioperative performance. This software enables leaders to optimize their staff and OR utilization as well as standardize supplies and implant use across surgeons.
Benchmarking is Vital to Success
In addition to reporting and sharing summaries of our indicators that define, measure, and demonstrate quality of clinical practice, we benchmark performance both regionally and nationally.
Evidence-based is the Best Clinical Approach
Our clinical approach is based on empirical evidence and peer-reviewed literature. In addition to clinical advancements uncovered through our research, we also utilize the expertise of advisory boards that include innovative clinicians and industry-leading physicians, surgeons, and anesthesiologists. Together, they work closely with our chief medical officer, members of our medical office, and SpecialtyCare management to provide insight and guidance in clinical systems, procedural guidelines and quality indicators.
We Are Innovation. We are Clinical Excellence.
We are the leaders in OR innovation because our core belief is to never settle for status quo. We believe that a better way is always possible and we’re dedicated to identifying best practices through research, data collection and implementation, and an overall will to see successful results. We don’t want to just meet the needs of our partners, we want to exceed them.
We deliver exceptional care through participation in 400,000 procedures each year, supporting over 13,500 physicians in more than 1,100 hospitals across the country.
