Selecting the right facility that meets your medical needs can be confusing and stressful. Over the past 10 years, ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) have emerged as a popular choice for low-risk patients seeking high-quality, efficient, and cost-effective surgical care. ASCs offer a range of advantages over traditional hospital settings that prioritize your convenience, safety, and personalized care.

Here are five key benefits of choosing ASCs:

  1. Convenient Care: Focused specific surgical specialties, these centers prioritize reduced waiting times and faster recovery periods for patients.
  2. Cost-effectiveness: ASCs typically have lower overhead costs compared to hospitals, resulting in lower facility fees and reduced expenses for patients.
  3. Lower Infection Rates: ASCs implement rigorous sanitation measures, including proper sterilization of equipment and adherence to evidence-based infection prevention guidelines.
  4. Enhanced Patient Experience: ASCs offer a patient-centric approach with individualized attention and personalized care plans.
  5. Flexibility and Accessibility: With their community-based locations, ASCs are easily accessible, minimizing travel time and logistical challenges.


Here at SCA Health, we are dedicated to preserving the independent practice of medicine and ensuring that all patients receive high-quality healthcare. By selecting an SCA Health-partnered ASC, patients can save time and money in comparison to receiving care in a traditional hospital setting or hospital outpatient department.
