Are you a physician wondering about the SCA Health difference? What has allowed us to stand out in a competitive healthcare market? How do we continue providing our physician partners, nurses, and patients access to safe, affordable, and convenient healthcare?
Below are eight reasons that make us the premier partner in the ambulatory surgery center (ASC) space.
1. Location, Location, Location
With over 320 surgical facilities across the United States, SCA Health offers a convenient ASC location for all physicians. Looking to set up your own location? We also assist in partnerships to help physicians stand up their own de novo ASCs.
2. A Well-Trained Staff
SCA Health is proud to offer ongoing job training to both our physician partners and nurse teammates. Our training programs are unique to the market, and offer a variety of skills and lessons to help you become the best provider you can.
For physicians, SCA Health offers our SCA Health Physician Development Institute (SPDI). Learn more about the business side of medicine, as well as specialty specific outpatient migration.

3. A Lower Cost of Care
In comparison to hospital outpatient departments (HOPD), ASCs offer a lower cost of care. Physicians see benefits through increased profit margins and increased autonomy, while patients receive lower costs per procedure and increased convenience.
4. Detailed Analytics
Utilize in-depth analytics from SCA Health to best understand and plan for the future of your center. From patient experience to cost-per-procedure, learn the ins and outs of operating your location.
5. Improved Communication
With our wide network of physicians across the United States, gain insight and advice from fellow professionals about trends, discuss current ASC-related news, and find new ways to improve your center.
6. Bundled Contracts
Maximize SCA Health’s connections and take advantage of our bundled payments and supply chain network. Save time and money obtaining the tools and items necessary to deliver the highest quality of care to your patients.
With hospital consolidation of ASCs continuing to rise, more and more physicians are forced to give up their autonomy to ensure job security. By partnering with SCA Health, you keep your seat at the table, leading your center into the future with the backing and might of our resources and connections.
8. Maintain your mental health
SCA Health remains committed to ensuring physicians can monitor and maintain their mental well-being while delivering patient care. Our dedication has earned us recognition in the form of a Gold Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health by Mental Health America. Come see why physicians opt to partner with SCA Health.
