THE ASC ADVANTAGE
WHAT IS AN ASC? An Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) is a health care facility that provides same-day surgical care in an outpatient setting. Outpatient setting means that all procedures and recovery times are less than 24 hours and the patient does basic recovery at home. In other words, ASC-qualifed procedures are procedures that are more intensive that those done in a doctor’s office, but less intense in that they don’t require a hospital stay.
