The Path to ASC Joint Venture Readiness

By Sean Rambo 

As care continues to migrate from inpatient to outpatient settings, forward-thinking health systems are looking to expand their outpatient portfolios by enhancing their ambulatory surgery center (ASC) platform. 

Many systems are rethinking their desire to bring in a partner to assist in building out their network, as a successful ASC joint venture is much easier said than done. In many respects, an ASC joint venture strategy is fundamentally a physician partnership strategy.
