As part of Optum Health, Surgical Care Affiliates (SCA), a leader in the outpatient surgery industry, strategically partners with health plans, medical groups and health systems across the country to develop and optimize surgical facilities. SCA operates more than 210 surgical facilities, including ambulatory surgery centers and surgical hospitals, in partnership with approximately 7,500 physicians. 

Surgical Management Solutions is an early stage start up backed by Surgical Care Affiliates, a division of United Health Group.  Surgical Managements mission is to empower consumers with the knowledge and education to understand their healthcare costs, coupled with seamless access and enhanced consumer experience when they need those services. Surgical Management Solutions was founded by SCA leaders after recognizing a substantial need to better reach and influence consumers to take ownership of their healthcare costs.  Healthcare benefits are complex, and many consumers find themselves frustrated with the lack of transparency in the system and lack the simple means of understanding costs and how to access the care they need.  The surgical management solutions model is intentionally designed to provide a simple solution to large, self-insured employers to drive down outpatient surgical spend. The model is built around the ability to engage and educate membership to create an exceptional member experience. The SMS goal is to empower members to be well-informed to be true consumers of healthcare. SMS streamlines services and impacts pull through by redirecting patients to the lower cost, higher quality setting of surgical care. SMS partners with employers based on shared savings from a historical baseline spend and distributes savings.

The Director of Business Development & Client Management will serve as a primary creator of new business opportunities that unlocks growth across the enterprise.  This individual will manage relationships with health plans, employers, and consultants/brokers€”while serving as an ambassador for SMS and its values.
