'Newsweek' ranks America's Best ASCs in 25 states

Newsweek partnered with global research firm Statista to identify the 400 best ASCs in 25 states with the most facilities.

The 2021 ranking took into account ASC quality data, centers' handling of the COVID-19 crisis, and surveys of ASC nurses, therapists, physicians, surgeons and administrators. The number of ASCs awarded varied by state. California was represented with 80 ASCs, and Mississippi was on the other end of the spectrum with just three.

William Prentice, CEO of the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association, commented on the ranking to Becker's ASC Review:

"ASCA is pleased that Newsweek is recognizing that ambulatory surgery centers provide exemplary care to patients across the country because that has been true for a very long time. Readers should also know that there are several nationally recognized accrediting bodies that independently certify the quality of care provided by thousands of ambulatory surgery centers. For this reason, we strongly recommend that patients considering surgery in an ASC look at the publicly available quality data that Medicare makes available online, as well as the accreditations awarded to the surgery center."
