Health care is changing rapidly; reform efforts, a pivot to population health management solutions and changing consumer behavior driven by the adoption of high deductible health plans are re-writing the rules of the health care economy. Thriving in this new environment requires nimble health systems to increase collaboration with the right strategic partners.

As the health care system shifts to a fee-for-value or value-based payment model, outpatient surgery access points are a key component of a health system strategy optimizing hospital usage while providing high quality, cost effective care in the most appropriate setting to patients who don’t require inpatient services.
Aligning the goals of the three joint venture partners and investors – physicians, a hospital or health system and AMSURG – increases the surgery center’s role in providing value to patients, payers, referring physicians and the overall health care market.
Partnering through collaborative working relationships, AMSURG can help a health system or hospital:
- Establish or enhance a surgery center network by buying existing surgery centers and building new surgery centers
- Align with the market’s top specialty surgeons
- Provide a lower cost, high quality destination with superior patient satisfaction for the lowest acuity patients
- Share in a vision of improved patient experience and quality outcomes driving higher utilization and reimbursements
AMSURG’s expertise in ambulatory surgery center (ASC) management and the development of regional outpatient surgery strategies, as well as our access to capital, allows health systems to devote focus and resources to their core business. Our team approach ensures that health systems have access to leadership in expert strategic support services to hospitals and health systems for ambulatory surgery center management.
