Surgical centers are similar to hospitals in three respects:
- Your surgeon is supported by a highly skilled team of registered nurses and medical technicians specially trained in surgical and recovery care.
- Our surgical suites and sophisticated equipment are like those of a large hospital.
- If scheduled, Board Certified Anesthesiologists will be involved in your care and will be visiting with you on admittance.
Why Choose a Surgery Center?
Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) are able to provide high quality surgery at a lower cost than hospitals. According to US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) data, patients who have surgery in an ASC pay an average of 46% less than patients having the same surgery in a hospital.
The HHS survey data also reports the quality of care provided in a surgery center is equal to or better than comparable care provided in a hospital because of the infrequency of complications and infections.
Other reasons a surgery center may be the perfect fit for you includes convenient scheduling, reliable service, and a high level of professionalism. Of the survey participants who had one of four procedures performed in a surgery center, 98% reported they were satisfied with their experience.
