Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC) are an integral and well-established part of our nation’s health care system.
Ambulatory surgery centers—known as ASCs—are modern healthcare facilities focused on providing same-day surgical care, including diagnostic and preventive procedures.
ASCs have transformed the outpatient experience for millions of Americans by providing them with a more convenient alternative to hospital-based outpatient procedures—and done so with a strong track record of quality care and positive patient outcomes.
Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) provide essential surgical services to Medicare beneficiaries in Nebraska. Some of the most frequently performed services in ASCs are cataract surgeries, colonoscopies, endoscopies and orthopedic procedures.
