What is a Surgical Center?

An ambulatory surgery center, or ASC, is designed exclusively for short-stay surgery. A hospital, on the other hand, must be staffed and equipped to treat all types of medical conditions, providing a much broader range of services.

HealthONE Surgery Centers

HealthONE ambulatory surgery centers offer warm surroundings and an increased level of individual attention from our staff, minimizing the stress often associated with surgery. We are not a hospital, but, surgical centers are similar to hospitals in three respects:

  1. Your surgeon is supported by a highly skilled team of registered nurses and medical technicians specially trained in surgical and recovery care.
  2. Our surgical suites and sophisticated equipment are like those of a large hospital.
  3. If scheduled, Board Certified Anesthesiologists will be involved in your care and will be visiting with you on admittance.
