Pacific Surgery Center & Surgery Center of Cleveland host 2 members of Congress

In honor of national ASC month, two surgery centers hosted members of Congress.

According to the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association, hosting lawmakers during August is an effective way of advocating for the surgery center industry. The Surgery Center of Cleveland in Tennessee hosted Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn. During her visit, administrator Marietha Silvers told the senator that the ASC saves $100 million in Medicare spending for the state.

Pacific Surgery Center in Poulsbo, Wash. hosted Rep. Derek Kilmer, D-Washington.
