Why Choose an ASC?
Over 50% of ASCs nationwide have an infection rate of 0%.
All healthcare facilities in the United States are highly regulated to ensure quality care and patient safety. Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs) are no exception to this rule. Our facilities are independently regulated by processes including state licensure, voluntary accreditation, and Medicare certification. Studies show this attention to quality enables ASCs to outperform hospitals when it comes to clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction. More...
Choosing an ASC can save some patients over 50% out of pocket.
ASCs work to provide the best surgical experience possible at a lower cost to patients. Because they are more efficient when it comes to same-day surgery, patients typically pay less co-insurance at an ASC for the same procedure received in a hospital setting. And patients don't have to wait to see the savings; in an effort to make pricing more transparent, cost information is generally available to patients prior to surgery. More...
Over 70% of all ASC procedures start within seven minutes of schedule.
There are over 5,000 ASCs across the country, and with each one comes more patient choice. As the industry grows, so does the list of both outpatient surgeries and non-surgical procedures available to patients in a local, personalized ASC setting. And because of physician ownership in ASCs, scheduling of facilities and resources becomes more efficient, which means fewer surgery delays for patients. More...
