ELLICOTT CITY — St. Agnes Hospital buys surgery center

ELLICOTT CITY -- St. Agnes Hospital has purchased a Columbia Medical Plan outpatient-surgery center in Ellicott City, its first major expansion outside of Baltimore City in more than 100 years.

The Baltimore City hospital bought the Patuxent Surgicare Center at 2850 North Ridge Road on Monday to better serve patients in Howard and Baltimore counties. About 2,000 Howard County residents visited the hospital in 1991, hospital officials said.

The hospital will use the first floor of the three-story building to perform outpatient surgery ranging from podiatry to plastic surgery. The building is about 10 miles from St. Agnes Hospital, and will be renamed the St. Agnes Surgery Center.

The hospital declined to reveal the purchase price of the building, as did Columbia Medical Plan.
