National ASC Day - August 19, 2015

For over forty years ASCs have provided high quality, cost efficient surgical care for millions of Americans. ASCs have, in that time, transformed the outpatient experience by offering a convenient and personalized alternative to the hospital outpatient surgical setting.

For the last decade, ASCs have promoted awareness of these contributions by opening their doors to their communities, and hosting National ASC Day events. By hosting an event in your community you can educate key policy and decision makers about the benefits of ASCs and encourage public awareness of your ASC.

August 19, 2015 is National ASC Day, and ASCs across the country will host a variety of activities and events to celebrate, including educational seminars, tours of ASCs, health screenings and social media outreach.
