National ASC Day Celebrations
August 15 was National ASC Day, an opportunity to promote community awareness of the benefits of choosing an ambulatory surgery center.
Several centers and an industry company took advantage of the day to celebrate and raise awareness of the low-cost, high-quality care available at ASCs.
For National ASC Day, Access MediQuip representatives visited ASC-sponsored events to help raise awareness of the positive impact ASCs have on their patients and communities. Access MediQuip is a Lake Mary, Fla.-based surgical implant management company.
