Ambulatory Surgery Center
An ambulatory surgery center (also known as an outpatient surgery center, same-day surgery center, or surgicenter) is a licensed, freestanding, outpatient health care facility where surgical procedures not requiring an overnight hospital stay are performed.
An ambulatory surgery center (ASCs) is a health care facility that offers patients the opportunity to have selected surgical and procedural services performed outside the hospital setting. Since their inception more than three decades ago, ASCs have demonstrated an exceptional ability to improve quality and customer service while simultaneously reducing costs. At a time when most developments in health care services and technology typically come with a higher price tag, ASCs stand out as an exception to the rule.
