Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) are facilities where surgeries and procedures that do not require hospital admission are performed. They provide a cost-effective and convenient environment that is less stressful than what many hospitals offer. Each year, over eight million procedures are performed in more than 4,000 ASCs across the United States.
Patient satisfaction is a hallmark of the ASC industry. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General surveyed Medicare beneficiaries who had one of four procedures in an ASC. He found that 98% of the people were satisfied with their experience. Reason for high patient satisfaction are convenient scheduling, value and studies consistently show that the quality of care delivered at ASCs is equal to or better than comparable hospital care.
