While the ASC industry remains largely fragmented, the industry is slowly consolidating, according to a Jan. 26 report from VMG Health.
Here are three stats to know about industry consolidation:
1. Seventy percent of ASCs remain independent as of 2022.
2. The number of ASCs under partnership by a national operator saw an increase of 1,752 to 1,804 ASCs from 2021 to 2022.
3. The five largest ASC companies — United Surgical Partners International, AmSurg, SCA Health, HCA Healthcare and Surgery Partners — saw an increase of around 511 centers since 2011.
