Description

Ambulatory Surgical Centers have been growing exponentially in the last thirty years. Hospitals have suffered because they are unable to provide the same quality of care with the same speed, efficiency and level of patient satisfaction as an Ambulatory Surgical Center. This article traces the growth of Ambulatory Surgical Centers and the corresponding legislative attempts to curb their grown and, perhaps, eliminate them completely. Reasons why regulatory attempts to eliminate Ambulatory Surgical Centers have not been successful are discussed and a shift in focus from Ambulatory Surgical Center regulation to regulation of insurance reimbursement rates is recommended.
