ALIGNING SUCCESSFUL PARTNERSHIPS
Naturally, you want to be part of a profitable enterprise — one with uncompromising professional standards. But you want more time to focus on patients and less time distracted by bureaucracy, compliance issues and office management.
We’ve worked out mutually rewarding relationships between physician groups — including competing practices — and hospital systems of all sizes. For large physician groups seeking outside management, we provide the business infrastructure that frees your time to grow your practice. Our operational, systems and staffing expertise creates a smooth-running ASC that reflects highly on your reputation. And our legal and financial depth gives you a solid foundation for long-term growth. We craft agreements that protect your autonomy while strengthening your partnership.
Our focus remains fixed on perpetuating the value of your investment.
[ WHAT WE BRING TO THE TABLE ]
You have to build an ASC on solid relationships among the physician and hospital-system partners. We’ve established ourselves as a reliable third-party facilitator: neutral, fair and grounded in the real world of today’s practitioner. What’s more, we bring best practices from successful ASCs to every facet of your plans, from market analysis to design and site selection to recruiting and staffing — with decisions backed up by hard data. You’re busy enough, providing care and growing your practice. We specialize in the planning and implementation skills that make growth possible.
All too often, ASCs leave money on the table, especially in contract negotiations with payers and vendors. Because we’ve seen so many different ASC situations, we know how to avoid the financial pitfalls that can turn a promising center into an unprofitable one — including one of the biggest expenses, staffing. We also optimize purchasing power to lower supply costs and acquire new technology.
Our professional management services go far beyond what an administrator has the time or the expertise to do alone. From clinical and technological considerations to compliance and staffing, we offer a full spectrum of capabilities in-house, all with the accountability you expect. As hands-on managers, we’re able to act nimbly, whether it’s bringing on a new technology or making sure your O.R. turnover stays at peak efficiency. Above all, we appreciate the importance of the patient experience and operate with the efficiency and sensitivity that grows your ASC’s reputation and your business.
Many factors contribute to turning an unprofitable center into an investment that continues to pay off: recruiting top surgeons to help increase volume, running operations with higher efficiency and even course-correcting a strategic plan to reflect a changing marketplace. We’ve seen and solved the gamut of financial and operational challenges — including issues you may be wrestling with right now.
