National ASC Month

August is also National ASC Month.

For more than 50 years, ASCs have provided high-quality, cost-efficient surgical care for millions of Americans. In that time, ASCs have transformed the outpatient experience by offering a convenient and personalized alternative to the hospital outpatient surgical setting.

For the last decade, ASCs have promoted awareness of these contributions by opening their doors to their communities and hosting National ASC Month events. By hosting an event in your community, you can educate key policy and decision makers about the benefits of ASCs and encourage public awareness of your ASC. Effective events include inviting your elected officials to tour your surgery center and hosting an open house to provide more information to patients. Hosting facility tours is crucial to ASCA’s education efforts and educating the more than 70 new members of Congress about the ASC community is especially essential. ASCA staff will support every aspect of your tour from start to finish.

Celebrate National ASC Month this August. Sign up here to host a facility tour or contact Adam Parker.

Wellness & Self-Care

The COVID-19 pandemic radically affected our daily lives in more ways than we can count. Our world changed drastically overnight and has continued to bring unpredictability ever since. In the midst of adapting to change and caring for our families, while still trying to maintain some sense of normalcy, we may have forgotten to take care of ourselves.

Throughout the month of August—which we have dedicated to showing you how much we care—we also want to share ways that you can care for yourself in these uncertain times and beyond.

Keep a lookout here for wellness tips, Zoom workouts, checklists and weekly tips from our staff on how they like to practice self-care. We also encourage you to share your favorite self-care tip with us in the form below!

For at least an hour but preferably more, at least once a week, turn off your cell phone, walk away from your computer and keep the television turned off. Read a book, go for a walk, take a nap or visit with a friend. It’s so refreshing not to feel like you are “on call” if someone needs you, even if you can only manage one hour away. -anonymous"
