Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) have rapidly become an preferred option for outpatient procedure services. As a result, the procedures that had been traditionally preformed in hospital settings have been transitioning more to the ASC model and previously designated inpatient procedures are now classified as outpatient procedures. Not only has this has led to more options for patients, but also positive patient outcomes and an increased quality of care. As of 2017, the number of ASCs exceeded 5,200 facilities in the U.S. and trends indicate that this number will continue to grow. Here are five reasons ASCs are the future of healthcare.

The ASC model is sustainable long term and the opportunity for investors will continue to grow as the ASC model develops.
