Surgery Center of Cleveland Works to Gain Support for ASC Quality & Access Act of 2013
Later this month, the Surgery Center of Cleveland has invited all elected officials and candidates to an open house to advocate support for the Ambulatory Surgical Center Quality and Access Act of 2013, according to a report from the Cleveland Banner.
Administrator Marietha Silvers and President of the governing body Seth Ford, MD, recently hosted Senator Jim Tracy at the center. According to the report, the center serves around 4,500 patients each year and has a 98-plus percent satisfaction rate.
The bill would update how ASC reimbursement is calculated and require a value-based purchasing program developed for ASCs by 2015.
