ASCOA develops and manages ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) throughout the United States. Since 1997, ASCOA has developed, acquired or turned around over 70 ASCs. This success has earned the company a leading position in the surgery center industry. Working as both a partner and the manager in each center, ASCOA executes its proven development, financial and operational model. The ASC fully realizes its potential as a provider of superior outcomes with outstanding profits for its owners whether it’s a hospital joint venture, turnaround or new center. Since ASCOA’s track record is unmatched, surgeons and hospitals have confidence in choosing them as the corporate equity partner.
ASCOA is one of the only ambulatory surgery center companies owned—and still managed—by physicians. The founders owned and operated multiple ASCs prior to forming ASCOA. The founders invested personal capital to start the company and have no outside private equity or venture funding. This unique combination of independence with clinical and financial expertise provides substantial advantage for physicians and hospitals alike. Recruiting efforts for the center succeed because MDs guide the conversation with potential surgeon partners. Hospitals find amazing financial revitalization from ASCOA’s disciplined management model—a process refined in over 70 surgery centers.
