Illinois ASC to close after health system acquisition, 2 years of $1M+ losses: 5 key notes

Ambulatory Care Center for Excellence in Surgical Services in Danville, Ill., will close at the end of the month, according to a report from The News-Gazette.

Here are five things to know:

1. The surgery center reported losing more than $1 million per year for the two years prior to announcing its intentions to close. The surgery center included orthopedics, gastroenterology, gynecology, vascular surgery and plastic surgery in addition to anesthesiology.

2. The surgery center plans to close pending Illinois state regulatory approval. The surgery center is a Presence Health facility. Presence United Samaritans Medical Center acquired the surgery center, formerly known as Danville HealthCare, in 2012.

3. Presence Health's regional president and CEO Jared Rogers, MD, reported the surgery center's closure won't impact access to care for Danville residents because United Samaritans will continue to perform those procedures.

4. According to The News-Gazette, many of the surgery center's employees have accepted positions elsewhere.

5. Presence Health's application for closure cited low utilization as the reason for closure. The center has three surgical suites, office space and recovery rooms.
