Why Choose an Ambulatory Surgery Center?

The Clear Alternative

What are Ambulatory Surgery Centers?

An ambulatory surgical center (ASC) is a facility where surgery can be performed on surgical patients without requiring an overnight admission. Also known as a center for medically-necessary surgical procedures, ASCs are different from hospital outpatient departments (OUCs). In addition to offering services that are less invasive than inpatient hospital stays, ASCs also reduce costs both for insurance companies and patients.

An ASC is essentially a place of business with surgical services that provides day surgeries to patients who have been screened and approved by an independent third party. There are many types of ASCs which perform specific medical procedures.
