Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASCs) Appraisals

Ambulatory surgery centers (“ASCs”) are freestanding facilities which exclusively provide low-acuity surgical procedures to patients on an outpatient basis. Surgical procedures performed at an ASC do not require a hospitalization, typically require less than a 24-hour stay, and do not pose a significant safety risk to the patient.

ASCs perform surgical procedures in a wide range of specialties, including otolaryngology (“ENT”), gastroenterology, general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, oral surgery, orthopedics, pain management, and plastic surgery. In order to be licensed by Medicare as an ASC, facilities must satisfy provider enrollment requirements as well as regulatory Conditions for Coverage (“CFCs”).

Facilities can meet the CFCs through accreditation with the Joint Commission, The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (“AAAHC”), or other accreditation organizations approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The majority of commercial insurance companies require ASCs to meet Medicare licensure requirements.

In just the past 3 years, VMG Health has conducted 900+ ASC valuations, including transactions, compensation, real estate and capital assets.
