Your Guide to ASCs: Ambulatory Surgery Centers

How an ASC can help your child have the most comfortable experience possible.

Are you the parent of a child who is in need of surgical care? If so, there are three letters you should learn: ASC (Ambulatory Surgery Centers).

These relatively new healthcare facilities can take much of the discomfort out of recovering from a surgical procedure. While we strive to make our office as comfortable as possible for all of the families that visit us, we know that no child is as comfortable “at the doctor” as he or she is at home.

That’s where ASCs can help. Ambulatory Surgery Centers are designed to perform procedures on an outpatient basis. That means that your son or daughter can return home to recover the day of his or her procedure. No shuffling through sterile hospital halls. No unknown noises or unfamiliar sights. Your child is able to get comfortable at home almost immediately after surgery.

Staffed by medical professionals with all of the same training and credentials as you would see at any other hospital and regulated by the state and federal government, ASCs are a safe, comfortable option for your family.

What’s more, because they’re designed to be efficient, ASCs offer lower out-of-pocket expense to their patients. If your child would benefit from healing at home and you would benefit from less time and money invested in a hospital stay, an ASC could be the right option for your family.
