We would like to invite you to become a member of the newly-formed Iowa Association of Ambulatory Surgery Centers (IAASC). As our mission statement below indicates, this organization was formed in response to an ongoing effort to increase public awareness, improve communication and foster collaborative practice among Ambulatory Surgery Centers throughout the state.
Our organization is focused on building fundamental principals which will serve all types of surgery centers and contribute to the over-all growth of our industry. We plan to focus our legislative agenda on ensuring that procedures that are safe and appropriate for an Ambulatory Surgery Center can be performed, billed and reimbursed.
Included with this letter is an application for membership, along with the adopted dues structure. If you have any questions or concern about potential membership, we would encourage you to attend a meeting or contact any board member (listed on the application) with questions. With growing support from our colleagues, our objective is that membership within this organization will provide you and your administrative staff with experience and knowledge to deal with future situations. We also want to provide an opportunity for camaraderie with other administrators in similar positions and ongoing information that will benefit you, your surgery center and your patients.
We look forward to hearing from you in the future!
