  • Surgery centers only do one thing...outpatient surgery.
  • Surgery centers are small facilities that are easily accessible, with staff are specifically selected and trained to deliver care in an outpatient setting.
  • The smaller size of an ASC lends itself to a warm and calm environment where care is more personal.
