Why Choose to have Your Surgery in an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC)?

Surgeons at workASC’s are able to provide high quality surgery at a lower cost than hospitals. According to Medicare data, patients who have their surgery in an ASC pay an average of 41% less than patients having the same surgery in a hospital. This savings results in less out of pocket expense to our patients. This can make a necessary or elective surgery much more affordable during these difficult economic times.
