ASC Development in South Carolina

ASC Development in South Carolina

CSA is expanding into the South Carolina market.

We’ve identified South Carolina as a key growth market for ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). As part of our expansion, we’re seeking to partner with a health system in South Carolina to evaluate opportunities to develop ASCs under our joint-venture business model. 

Consumer, physician, and payer demand for non-hospital based surgical services is rapidly growing. Hospitals and health systems that embrace ASC development are more successful in attracting and retaining surgeons, protecting and growing market share, and meeting the demand for appropriate site-of-service surgical care. At CSA, we understand the challenges and complexities in developing ASCs that are joint ventured with surgeons.

  • A Team of Seasoned and Experienced Experts: The average tenure of our executive team is greater than a decade. With our expertise and industry knowledge, we can be your guide throughout the entire ASC development journey from physician syndication, site selection, design, licensing, accreditation, and long-term management.

  • Fair and Sustainable Business Terms: Unlike many of the large ASC development and management companies, CSA typically owns a minority equity stake in each project while performing day-to-day management duties for a fair management fee.

  • CSA is 100% Independent: As a private and unconflicted company, we focus on delivering solutions tailored to our partners. We are not beholden to private equity investors, bankers, publicly traded corporations, or insurance companies.

  • Clinical Excellence: We are committed to delivering exceptional and safe patient care through the highest clinical standards. Together with our surgeon and hospital partners, we implement evidence-based practices, advanced technology, and stringent quality measures to ensure outstanding clinical outcomes and patient safety. This year, five of our partnered ASCs were named to the Leapfrog Group’s “Best Surgery Centers” list, and our ASCs have a consolidated 97% Top-Box patient experience rating. CSA has heavily invested in a robust and proprietary clinical and business intelligence tool that allows us to timely measure, report, and manage outcomes.

  • Long-Term Relationships: We don’t build and flip surgery centers. CSA has a record of structuring innovative partnerships that are built on trust, strategic alignment, and long-term engagements.

  • Clinical Service-Line Expertise: We operate ASCs that excel in orthopedics, total joint arthroplasty, spine surgery, ENT, ophthalmology, GI, and urology. CSA partnered centers have been performing TJA surgery since 2010 and we have developed a robust TJA program that meets the quad-aim goals and is value-based-care-ready when local payers require alternative payment structures such as bundled programs.

  • Turnkey Development and Management Solutions: We bring value and convenience to our partners by managing all aspects of surgery center development and operations, from site selection, surgeon syndication, facility planning, construction management, licensing, hiring, onboarding staff, supplier and vendor relationships, and long-term management.

  • Proven Financial Success: We recognize the importance of financial success in your ASC venture. Leveraging our expertise in revenue cycle management, strategic financial planning, and payer negotiations, we help maximize profitability and return on partner investment.

The recent sunsetting of South Carolina’s Certificate of Need (CON) law presents significant challenges, threats, and opportunities for health systems and physicians. We’re here to help you mitigate those threats and capitalize on opportunities.

Our goal is to select one health system partner in South Carolina, and we welcome the opportunity to meet with you or your team to discuss your market needs, and to develop strategies and solutions that can help accelerate market share growth for you.

We invite you to download an informative case study that highlights our 13-year partnership with a health system that grew from one to seven ASCs and developed a new orthopedic institute that substantially grew their market share.
