Millennium HealthCare schedules opening of 3rd Vascular Surgical Facility
GARDEN CITY, N.Y., Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Millennium HealthCare Inc. (OTC Pink: MHCC) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Millennium Vascular Management Group, has negotiated and executed a management and service agreement with a physicians group for the opening and management of the Company’s 3rd Vascular Surgical Facility in Queens, New York. The scheduled opening is fourth quarter, 2012.
Chris Amandola, President, stated, “Millennium HealthCare’s Vascular Practice Management Group has launched three new vascular facility openings beginning February 2012 in New York and New Jersey. The Company is in active negotiations with multiple medical groups to expand our model nationwide with an initial strategic emphasis on the East Coast. The specialty outpatient healthcare industry for peripheral vascular disorders (PVD) offers significantly lower medical costs for healthcare providers and improves the outcome for the patient in time, convenience and result. Our goal is to establish Millennium as a premier cardiovascular practice management group nationwide.”
Millennium’s management strategy is to focus on recent changes in medical insurance reimbursement for procedures in an out-patient setting versus the hospital. The medical insurance industry is drastically trying to reduce the overall cost of patient care performed in a hospital setting. This emphasis allows physicians to perform their elected procedures in an out-patient setting. Millennium practice management focuses on treatments for peripheral vascular disease that can be more efficiently preformed in an out-patient day center setting. The opening of the 3rd such center under management will greatly add to Millennium’s future revenues.
Recent medical insurance company acquisitions (acquisition by ATENA of Coventry Health Care for $5.7 billion) indicates that the large insurance companies are moving to significantly cut their expenses while maintaining their services. The movement to out-patient medical care is the easiest way to lower costs for the insurance industry.
