U.S. News & World Report has added "Best Ambulatory Surgery Centers" to its annual rankings.
The new ranking will evaluate ASCs in four specialty areas: gastroenterology, urology, ophthalmology, and orthopedics and spine, according to a Nov. 28 news release from U.S. News & World Report.
CareJourney, a healthcare analytics platform, will be the data partner for the rankings. This will allow readers to consider each ASC's rate of emergency room visits and excess costs from avoidable complications.
The rankings are planned to be released in the second quarter of 2024.
