An ambulatory surgery center or ASC is a modern health care facility providing same-day surgical care and outpatient procedures, including diagnostic and preventive procedures.
ASCs are a convenient alternative to hospital-based outpatient procedures and allow patients to undergo procedures safely outside the hospital setting.
In Phoenix, Arizona, in 1970, the first ASC facility was opened by two physicians who wanted to provide a high-quality, cost-effective alternative to inpatient hospital care for surgical services.
ASCs must be highly regulated by state and federal entities to ensure the safety and quality of the care.
