For more than forty years, ASCs have provided high-quality, cost-efficient surgical care for millions of Americans. In that time, ASCs have transformed the outpatient experience by offering a convenient and personalized alternative to the hospital outpatient surgical setting.
For the last decade, ASCs have promoted awareness of these contributions by opening their doors to their communities and hosting National ASC Month events. By hosting an event in your community, you can educate key policy and decision makers about the benefits of ASCs and encourage public awareness of your ASC. Effective events include inviting your elected officials to tour your surgery center and hosting an open house to provide more information to patients.
Celebrate National ASC Month this August. Sign up here to host a facility tour or contact Danielle Kaster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jason Pugh, Dare Underwood Meeks, Representative Gary Palmer (R-AL) and Coy Wells discuss ASC issues during a tour at Outpatient CareCenter in Alabama.
