Why choose an ASC?

Peninsula Procedure Center is an ambulatory surgery center—or ASC—which provides outpatient services. Outpatient services are medical procedures or surgeries that do not need an overnight stay. For many of us, this means less time away from work and other commitments, as many procedures allow you to return home within a couple of hours.

Here are more reasons why people are choosing ASCs for their procedures:

• Through increased efficiency, ASCs are often able to provide care at a much lower cost to the patient and their insurance company. ASCs have save Medicare $2,000,000,000 (2 billion) annually by providing these low-cost services.

• The patient’s infections are minimized without additional hospital exposure.

• Since surgeons have a greater level of control over their surgical environment by participating in staff selection and equipment purchasing, they can work more effectively and efficiently to enhance outcomes.

• Because ASCs typically specialize in just a few procedures, the staff is typically highly experienced in the services provided.

• Patients report extremely high levels of satisfaction.

• ASCs are independently regulated by several rigorous processes including Medicare certification, state licensure, and voluntary accreditation.
