Constitution Surgery Alliance can help all ASC partners operate better together — with increased efficiency, management responsiveness and financial improvement. We are one of the largest independent operators of outpatient surgery centers in the U.S. Since 1997, we have developed and managed ASCs that provide patients with the highest level of care while delivering exceptional financial returns to our physician and hospital partners.
[ WHY A SPECIALIST SHOULD SEE A SPECIALIST ]
We have developed single-specialty centers in orthopedics, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology and urology, as well as multi-specialty facilities as large as 10 ORs. We have purchased centers, sold centers to hospitals and national buyers, managed hospital outpatient departments, and created a variety of joint ventures with hospitals and health systems, including integrated collaborations covering a broad array of both inpatient and outpatient activities.
[ WHAT WE BRING TO THE TABLE ]
Since each ASC’s situation is unique, we base our planning and strategic growth services on data-driven business intelligence. We build an extensive database on each new market, including Medicare data, hospital and ASC staff rosters, Department of Health information, and competitor mapping. Our deep experience in physician/hospital joint ventures includes facility and employee leasing arrangements, MSAs, SLAs and Medical Directorships for both inpatient and outpatient service lines.
Your ASC can improve its ROI using our sophisticated financial-modeling and transaction-structuring capabilities. Through our billing and financial services affiliate, Constitution Billing & Financial Services (CBFS), we interface with multiple hospital system partners to integrate financial reporting with their existing systems. Of the $176 million of annual net patient revenue generated by the centers we manage, we provide all billing and financial services required for $113 million.
We take a hands-on approach to management and oversight, continuously monitoring performance metrics for quality improvement. You will find proven systems for supply chain management and cost containment, drawing from our strong business intelligence capabilities. A top priority is recruiting and retaining talented staff, providing the training and resources for them to do their best work.
More than half of the 5,000+ ASCs in the US just break even or lose money. We bring more than 18 years of success in turning around centers with poor or marginal results. By increasing patient volume, optimizing payer contracts, leveraging our case volume to maximize savings from vendor contracts, and improving operational efficiency, we’ve been able to turn underachieving ASCs into profitable facilities.
