Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC)
Office-based and ambulatory surgery centers serve as efficient means for physicians to provide patient services and reduce health care expenditures. Further, as the science of medicine progresses, in turn producing improved outcomes and reducing the risk of procedures, the capabilities of such centers are ever-expanding and their role within the health care industry is becoming more and more important. This importance has also increased the demand for effective, knowledgeable surgery center attorneys to assist providers in their efforts.
Although the State and Federal governments recognize this truth (and the Federal government has even adopted an Anti-Kickback Statute safe harbor for certain ambulatory surgery centers), regulatory authorities also impose unique reporting, disclosure, accreditation and other requirements upon office-based and ambulatory surgery centers.
The Health Law Partners, P.C. has extensive experience representing office-based and ambulatory surgery centers in all aspects. Our surgery center attorneys frequently assist in the organization of such centers, assist with private placement offerings, physician relationships and other strategic affiliations and help to address governance, compliance, accreditation, reimbursement and Certificate of Need (CON) issues.
