* Westlake Hills Surgery Center is a state of the art facility staffed with world class surgeons and experienced clinical staff. WHSC is located in rolling hills just west of Austin, in The Hills Professional Building on Bee Cave Rd. Built in 2015 by owner/operator Kim Russell-Waselenchuk, the center has two spacious operating suites and a separate procedure room. Currently the center provides services for cosmetic, hand, and plastic surgery and will soon expand to include other specialties.
Patrick Kelley, M.D, Founder & CEO, earned degrees from the University of Texas at Austin (BA, 90), Baylor College of Medicine (MD, 94, Post-grad Residency Plastics, 2004) and Seattle Children's (Craniofacial Fellowship, 2005). Dr. Kelley's primary clinical and research interests are in craniofacial, cleft lip/palate and head and neck cancer.
Dr. Kelley also has a passion for leading the transformation of healthcare. In 2005, Dr. Kelley created the Craniofacial Center of Central Texas in partnership with Seton. The Center was built with the patient at the center of all activities similar to the Integrated Practice Unit model.
Through his work with Seton, Dr. Kelley formed two important medical groups, Pediatric Surgical Subspecialties and Seton Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, bringing services to Central Texas that had not previously existed including critical capacity to enable Level One Trauma development to the region for the first time in history.
After attending several value based healthcare courses including Dr. Michael Porter's course at Harvard Business School, Dr. Kelley became convinced that medicine would not change until the healthcare market began to compete on value to the patient. Most recently, Dr. Kelley has taken up a new challenge, partnering with several local business innovators to form InnovoCare to build a cloud-based solution cost calculator enabling providers to understand their true ground up cost of healthcare delivery, combining Time-Driven Activity Based Costing with novel process flow tools.
