National ASC Day 2012 will take place on Thursday, October 11. Start planning now to sponsor an event at your ASC. These events provide an excellent opportunity to acquaint policy makers, the residents of your community and local media with your ASC and all of the benefits that ASCs offer.
In the past, ASCs have conducted a broad range of activities in recognition of National ASC Day, including health fairs, facility tours and media briefings. Through time, these events have educated thousands of people about the high-quality, lower-cost care that ASCs provide.
“National ASC Day 2012 provides the ideal opportunity for ASCs to demonstrate their value to policy makers and the public," notes ASCA Chief Executive Officer William Prentice. “ASCs are often the first choice of doctors and patients because they offer outstanding surgical care while also providing convenience, cost savings and a comforting environment where highly skilled staff and physicians put patients first."
