Credentialing & Ownership at Muskegon Surgery Center


Muskegon Surgery Center welcomes and encourages physicians to explore credentialing and the granting of privileges at our facility. We use a standard process to credential, privilege and re-credential healthcare professionals, which includes the assessment and validation of qualifications according to our Medical Staff Bylaws, Rules and Regulations.

We will grant privileges after satisfactory completion of this process, and will maintain a separate Medical Staff Credentialing file containing all original credentialing and privileging information. This information will include, but may not be limited to: applications, copies of licenses/certification, primary and secondary source verifications, delineation of privileges and letters of appointment.

Peer review information will be maintained separately from the credentialing files.


Muskegon Surgery Center is a limited liability corporation owned by Mercy Health Partners and area physicians, including Matthew Bowen, MD; Christopher Eyke, MD; Daniel Fett, DO; David Goran, MD; Yousif Hamati, MD; Craig Hoekzema, MD; Mark Moulton, MD; Martin Pallante, MD; Jessica Phelps, MD; Jeffrey Recknagel, MD; Joseph Salisz, MD; Brian Stork, MD and Stephen Zonca, MD. Because new physician owners are added periodically, please contact your physician if you are interested in knowing if they have ownership in Muskegon Surgery Center.

The specialties of our owner physicians in no way determine the types of procedures available at Muskegon Surgery Center, and we encourage other non-owner physicians to contact us regarding credentialing and the granting of privileges at our facility.  If you are an interested physician please call Muskegon Surgery Center CEO Julie Greene at 231-733-7800 or email us from the Contact Us page for more information.


Our Mission 

Muskegon Surgery Center is committed to serving all of our patients, physicians, employees, employers and the community by providing exemplary surgical experiences. We will be leaders in quality, service, cost and innovation.

Our Values

We believe that our first responsibility is to our patients who use our services. We must constantly strive to provide the highest quality of care with the most efficient use of resources on a completely non-discriminatory basis as to age, sex, race, color, creed or national origin.

Our second responsibility is to our medical staff. We must provide a service that will encourage physicians to utilize our facility while providing the highest quality of care. Each individual medical staff member must be addressed as an individual and his or her needs evaluated as part of our continuing services.

Our third responsibility is to the community in which we live. We must be a good citizen, support good works and charity, as resources are available. We must maintain in good order the property we are privileged to use. We must participate in the promotion of civic improvement, health, education and good government, and acquaint the community with our activities.

Our fourth responsibility is to those who work with us. Employees must have a sense of security in their jobs and wages must be fair and adequate. Each person must be considered an individual standing on his own dignity and merit and be accountable for the tasks assigned.

Our fifth responsibility is to our management. Our executives/management team must be persons of talent, education, experience and ability. They must be persons of common sense and have a full understanding of the goals of the center.

Our sixth responsibility is to our investors. Business must generate adequate resources to continually address new ideas, keep pace with new technology and the development of new programs. We are determined to fulfill these obligations to the best of our ability.
