Publisher's Letter: June 2013


This issue of Becker’s ASC Review focuses on operational improvement, ASC financial issues and increasing profitability. Industry leaders and ASC administrators discuss how to manage change from healthcare reform, maximizing the bottom line and ASC valuation.

The issue includes three key lists: 35 ASC Joint Venture Administrators to Know, 30 ASCs With 20+ Years of History and 61 Management & Development Company CEOs to Know.

Please join us for the 20th Annual Ambulatory Surgery Centers Conference in Chicago on October 24 to 26 at the Swissotel. The conference features more than 130 surgery center CEOs, physicians and industry experts leading sessions on healthcare trends and improving your ASC’s bottom line in these challenging, but opportunity-filled, times.

Featured sessions at the conference will cover cost reduction and benchmarking to immediately improve profits; key thoughts on keeping ASC owners engaged; which specialties are great for ASCs — and which should be eliminated — today; and the state of the ASC industry. Leading experts will cover where the ASC industry is headed and how to take advantage of the best opportunities for profitability going forward.

Keynote speakers at the conference include:

1. David Feherty, CBS Golf Commentator and bestselling author of six books, including most recently “The Power of Positive Idiocracy.”

2. Rick Pitino, head men’s basketball coach at the University of Louisville, the first coach in NCAA history to win a national championship at two different schools, and author of bestsellers such as “Success Is A Choice” and “Lead to Succeed.”

3. Bob Woodward, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and Associate Editor at The Washington Post, and author of 12 bestsellers.

4. Bonnie Blair, a speed skating champion and Olympic Gold Medalist who has been named one of the Century’s Five Best Female Athletes by Sports Magazine.
