The 3rd edition of America‘s Best Ambulatory Surgery Centers awards the leading 510 ambulatory surgery centers (ASC) in the US based on quality of care, performance data and peer recommendations, relative to in-state competition.
Included ambulatory surgery centers operate exclusively for the purpose of providing surgical services to patients not requiringhospitalization and in which expected duration of services would not exceed 24 hours following an admission.
For the first time, ambulatory surgery centers from all US states were included in the survey.
The 25 states with the most facilities according to the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) were surveyed individually. The remaining states were grouped into 4 regions. ASCs from these states were considered accordingly.
Over 5,000 ambulatory surgery centers were analyzed, resulting in a varying number of ASCs awarded per state: California had 85 ambulatory surgery centers awarded, while Mississippi is represented with 4 ambulatory surgery centers.
The list is based on two data sources:
1. Online survey by state: During the survey period from August to September 2022, thousands of medical professionals (medical doctors/surgeons, registered nurses, nursing assistants, therapists) and staff working in the management/administration in ambulatory surgery centers, were invited to an online survey in cooperation with Newsweek.
2. KPI Data: Based on the Ambulatory Surgical Center Quality Reporting (ASCQR) Program by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
