What Is An Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC)?
Specialty Surgical Center in Sparta, New Jersey, is an ambulatory surgical center, or ASC. These surgery centers are facilities that only provide outpatient, or one-day, surgical care. Patients do not stay for overnight care, and ASCs have transformed the way Americans receive outpatient procedures – ASCs are a convenient alternative to traditional hospitals while still providing an extremely high standard of patient care.
Ambulatory surgery centers do not provide urgent care or emergency care services. While ASCs may share space with a doctor’s office, patients are not seen in an ASC for an office visit or diagnosis. Patients who visit ASCs have already seen a physician or health care provider and have determined with their provider that surgery will be their treatment program.
There are many surgeries and procedures that can be performed in an ASC, including interventional pain management procedures, orthopedic procedures and surgeries, urologic procedures and surgeries, gynecologic procedures and surgeries, and many more.
In general, ASCs report a 92 percent patient satisfaction rate, and at Specialty Surgical Center, our goal is to see 100 percent of our patients satisfied with their experience. Studies have shown that ASCs provide better or equal levels of patient care when compared to hospitals, and at Specialty Surgical Center, patient safety and care are our priorities. Our staff has been trained and certified in several patient safety programs to ensure the best levels of care at all times.
Ambulatory surgery centers are also usually a great cost alternative to traditional hospitals, and at Specialty Surgical Center, our team is committed to transparency of price. We encourage patients to ask about the cost of their surgery, and to look into prices at several locations. We provide the cost of procedures up front, so patients know what their financial responsibility will be and there are no surprises after surgery.
Ambulatory surgery centers have become more prominent fixtures in the healthcare field and their number is only expected to grow. For more information on Specialty Surgical Center, contact us at 973-940-3166
