Southwoods Co-Founders Look Back on 25 Years

Southwoods Health co-founders Dr. Louis Lyras and Ed Muranksy look back on 25 years of growth. During the first year of operation, Lyras says, all of Southwoods’ employees could fit into a single conference room. Back then, the surgical hospital consisted of four operating rooms and two endoscopy suites, he says.

Today, Southwoods employs more than 1,000 people across its network.

“It was baby steps,” Muransky says.
