“Ambulatory Surgery Center Development Tips,” by Dr. Ronald Sollitto, NJ

The first step when developing an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) involves understanding the needs of physicians and actively pursuing their input. Administrators should interview their team of medical professionals, making sure to ask questions about workflow, patient relations, and equipment requirements. Administrators can then apply this information to new ASC development plans.

It is important to research and understand the prospective case volume of any ASC project. When trying to determine future case volume for an ASC expansion, take the number of cases at a comparable but established ASC facility and cut it by half. This method prevents overly optimistic or pessimistic ASC developers from building establishments too large or too small to deal with the influx of patients.

The above tips cover only the early stages of ASC development, an important time when proper preparation can play a substantial role in success.
