Who We Are

Opening the Door to Quality Surgical Care

Working with Employers Nationwide

Specialist Management Solutions (SMS) opens the door to high-quality, lower-cost outpatient surgical care. Working with employers nationwide, SMS helps their employees – and their family members – connect to specialty surgeons in their own communities who help them choose the appropriate settings for their procedures. Surgeons in the SMS alliance regularly use high-quality ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs), which provides the opportunity for employees to receive outpatient surgical care at potentially significant cost savings. 

Built-In Simplicity

Healthcare is far too complicated already. SMS tailors to the employer’s existing health program to create a seamless and cost-saving experience for both the business and its employees.

Impactful Education

SMS is about inspiring better decisions, not restricting options. From the first encounter with an employee, SMS provides insights that equip the individual to make more informed, confident choices.

Broad Reach

SMS is built for meaningful results. On-the-ground relationships with an extensive alliance of surgeons and ASCs mean access for the largest employer all the way down to local options for the employee.

Local Expertise

SMS teammates are in communities where employees live, across 35 states. With surgical expertise and deep knowledge of the local landscape, they provide personalized service to employers.
