A $5.5 million multispecialty ASC project broke ground in Queens in New York City, according to the Queens Chronicle. 

The ASC, which is being constructed by NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst, will be 5,000 square feet. There will be four procedure rooms, an operating room and 18 beds for patients to use before and after surgery. After the ASC's completion, the hospital expects to increase its outpatient surgery volume by 45 percent. The ASC is expected to generate $6.8 million in revenue.

Physicians at the ASC will specialize in gastroenterology, ophthalmology, gynecology and general surgery, among other specialties. Construction is expected to be completed in the spring of 2021.
