Baylor Surgicare at Valley View (Bedford, Texas). The ASC merged with Precision Surgery Center in Dallas earlier this year to form Baylor Surgicare at North Dallas. Accredited by The Joint Commission, the surgery center includes six operating rooms. The center's 11 physicians offer care in a wide array of specialties including brachytherapy, colon and rectal surgery, ENT, gastroenterology, gynecology, ophthalmology, orthopedics and urology. The ASC's administrator is Jill Thrasher.

Rochester (N.Y.) Ambulatory Surgery Center. The more than 20-year-old Lattimore Community Surgicenter was relocated to the newly-constructed Rochester Ambulatory Surgery Center.

"First cases were performed at the new location in two business days," says Jeff Peacock, MBA, executive director of the ASC. "The new location was fully operational in three business days with extremely high physician satisfaction and we saw 17 percent growth in volume in first year."

The new facility includes eight operating rooms and offers surgical services in numerous specialties, such as orthopedics, podiatry, general surgery, gynecology, otolaryngology and plastic surgery.

Surgical Center of Connecticut (Bridgeport). Merritt Healthcare partnered with 18 physicians to purchase an interest in the ASC in 2013. The center was relocated and opened in its new Bridgeport, Conn., location in 2014. It offers care in a number of specialties, such as general surgery, hand surgery, plastic surgery, orthopedics, neurosurgery, urology and gastroenterology.
