Why use an ASC?

  

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Ohio's ambulatory surgery centers (ASC). This site is designed to assist the members of the Ohio Association of Ambulatory Surgery Centers (OAASC) and to promote public awareness of ASCs and their services.

Our association is committed to enhancing the quality of care provided by ambulatory surgery centers in Ohio and to promoting high standards of professional conduct among all organizations providing ambulatory surgical care.

The OAASC is focused on the advancement of the ambulatory surgical center industry through legislative and regulatory advocacy, education, and good information. On a national level, the OAASC works cooperatively with the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association. This cooperation allows OAASC members to add their voices to the efforts directed toward Congress, the administration, and appropriate agencies.

In Ohio, the OAASC is the only organization exclusively representing the needs of the state's ASC community. We maintain close contact with state agencies and legislators to monitor and impact regulations and legislation that govern ASCs and improve patient safety.

Additionally, we provide members with information to enable their centers to operate using state-of-the-art surgical, technical and administrative procedures. OAASC offers an annual multi-day conference, timely educational offerings including in-person and web seminars and regular e-newsletters on reimbursement, regulatory compliance, quality standards and other industry-specific issues. Additionally, the OAASC has developed a state of the art benchmarking system so that Ohio ASCs measure their quality processes against their peers in the state.

Should you have any questions about information on this site or wish to receive information concerning Ohio's ASCs or the OAASC membership, please feel free to contact OAASC Executive Director, Randy Leffler (info@oaasc.net).
