116 new ASCs open in 2023

By the end of 2022, there were roughly 6,087 Medicare-Certified ASCs in operation in the U.S., with California holding the most facilities at 848. 

In 2023, the presence of ASCs continued to grow nationwide, expanding by roughly 116 new facilities in 2023, according to an April 16 article published in Outpatient Surgery Magazine.

Many of 2023's new ASCs were orthopedic-specific in nature, as the musculoskeletal industry continues to expand into the outpatient setting, according to the report. 

According to research from Philadelphia-based Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, the majority of orthopedic procedures cost 40% less in the ASC setting than the hospital outpatient department setting, driving a surge of investment. 

Here is a rundown of some of the new facilities that opened in 2023.
