National ASC Week

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. Events include inviting your elected officials to tour your surgery center and hosting an open house to provide more information to patients.

The 2017 National ASC Week is August 7-11.

While we celebrate National ASC Week the 7-11, Congress has a district work period for the entire month of August. It is a great time to build a relationship with you representative. If you would like to participate in National ASC Week, please contact Danielle Kaster at
