22 statistics on ASC case volume

ASCs across the country are benchmarking their surgical cases to maximize the value of their centers. In every region, except the Northeast, the average ASC has four operating rooms and two procedure rooms; the average ASC in the Northeast has three operating rooms and two procedure rooms.

Some procedures, such as orthopedics and spine, take longer while other procedures, including epidural steroid injections or colonoscopies, have a shorter procedure time.
