Advocate Sherman Hospital receives board approval for $12.7M ASC: 5 key points

The Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board gave Elgin, Ill.-based Advocate Sherman Hospital the green light to build its ASC in Elgin, according to the Daily Herald.

Here are five key points:

1. The 15,000-square-foot surgery center costs an estimated $12.7 million.

2. The ASC will offer services including general surgery, orthopedics, otolaryngology, ophthalmology and urology.

5. The surgery center is a joint venture between Deerfield, Ill.-based Surgical Care Affiliates, 13 physician investors and Advocate Sherman Hospital.
