SOS’ Specialists’ One-Day Surgery Center Announces Two Management Promotions

Posted on October 18, 2020

East Syracuse, NY - Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists (SOS) is pleased to announce two recent promotions within the management team of the Specialists’ One-Day Surgery Center (SODS). Geoffrey Smith, MBA, previously SODS Administrator, has been named Executive Director; and Michele Flavin, CPA, has been promoted to Chief Financial Officer of SODS.

SODS is a locally owned ambulatory surgery center that provides safe, convenient and affordable same day surgery for patients. With new technologies and more efficient procedures, certain surgeries can be performed at the site and the patient can return to the comfort of their own home to recover.

“We are proud to recognize Geoff and Michele for their talent and hard work and the contributions they have both made to the success of SODS,” commented Brett Greenky, MD, President of SOS. “Geoff was instrumental in the opening of the SODS state-of-the-art medical center on Taft Road in April 2019. He ensured a seamless transition from the previous site, and since its opening has overseen the growing operations with an ever-higher number of cases of one of the largest surgery centers in the Northeast.” In 2019, more than 8,000 surgical cases and 6,500 pain blocks were performed at SODS.

Smith joined SODS in October 2018. Under his tenure, SODS has seen growth in both the caseload and complexity of surgical cases in the two surgery centers. His position is vital to the continuum of care between SOS and SODS and integral to the management team. Previously he was CEO at APEX Surgery Center in Westmoreland, NY. Smith resides in New Hartford.

Flavin has been in the Financial Services department at SOS for seven years and has continued to grow her role. She continually takes on new duties in supporting Jessica Woodruff, CFO of SOS, and the management team at SOS. Her newly created position will align Flavin’s expertise with the SODS leadership team to ensure the financial growth and success of SODS. Flavin resides in Liverpool.
