Why Choose an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC)?
Ambulatory Surgery Centers—known as ASCs—are modern health care facilities focused on providing same-day surgical care, combining new technology and advanced surgery techniques to offer outpatient care that is both effective and personal. Your ASC experience will involve easier access, better parking, more privacy, less paperwork and less stress than a comparable hospital visit.
ASCs have transformed the outpatient experience for millions of Americans by providing them with a more convenient alternative to hospital-based outpatient procedures—and done so with a strong track record of quality care and positive patient outcomes.
Patient satisfaction is a hallmark of the ASC industry. When the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Inspector General surveyed Medicare beneficiaries who had one of four procedures in an ASC, it found that 98% of the people were satisfied with their experience.
The high level of professionalism, quality and safety ASCs offer is an important reason why patients and physicians choose ASCs for surgical procedures.
Studies overwhelmingly show that the quality of care delivered in ASCs is equal to or better than comparable hospital care. Not only that, but Medicare and its beneficiaries pay an average 72% more in a hospital outpatient department than they would pay for the same procedure if performed in an ASC.
