Massachusetts Avenue Surgery Center in Bethesda, Md., is preparing to add 23-hour stays, according to a Washington Business Journal report.
The surgery center's executive director Randy Gross said the center is preparing to offer services for the 23-hour "overnight" stays for procedures where it's medically necessary. Even after adding those services, surgery at the ambulatory surgery center costs less than the same procedure at a hospital, according to the report.
The ASC currently includes orthopedics, urology, podiatry, gynecology and pain management.
