Elite Surgical Affiliates, based in Houston, is a development and management company of surgical facilities with a focus on orthopedics, spine and pain. The company currently manages four surgery centers and has others in the pipeline.

Its mission is to be the industry's preferred surgical provider by delivering unparalleled service to its patients, physicians and partners, as well as specialized resources that enhance the healthcare communities it serves.

Elite provides a complete spectrum of development and management services for surgery center operations – ranging from facility design, equipment procurement and accreditation to financial management, sales and marketing, and internal controls.

CEO Lori Ramirez, who founded the company in 2008, has successfully partnered with hundreds of surgeons and credits the success of her company by living by Elite's corporate motto: "What's good for our patients and physicians is good for us."

In leading Elite, Mrs. Ramirez draws from her 12 years of prior experience in surgical development, operations and management – where she oversaw more than 20 surgical facilities, managed more than 600 employees, and was responsible for a joint venture between Memorial Hermann in Houston and CHRISTUS Health System in South Texas – a project comprised of 14 facilities.
