Selecting a site for your Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) location is more than just a smart real estate decision. It can affect everything from the financial health of your ASC to patient mix and beyond.

This is why ASC owners and administrators should invest effort in this phase of the new build process, considering the following points as you move forward.

  • Start with the positives
    Narrowing your site options based on what you do want will help ensure that your selected site meets your base criteria for success. Look at favorable demographics, payer mix, projected growth, and per-household investment in healthcare. 
  • Avoid these ASC location Issues
    You’ll also want to steer clear of certain traits in potential locations or, at the very least, flag them as concerns to address as you build out your strategy. Be on the lookout for a lack of revenue cycle talent, too much competition, a complex regulatory environment, and a challenging marketing landscape. 
  • Additional facts to consider
    But it’s not all about hard rules. Some of your considerations will be highly specific to your needs and goals. Think about service line focus, individual tax burdens, and talent shortages.
