ASCA Member Appreciation Week

This week is all about you, our members. We are thankful for your membership, so we’re celebrating you for the entire week!

Thank You for Being a Member

We hope you enjoyed Member Appreciation Week! ASCA could not continue to do the work we do without your support, and this week of recognition is a small token of our appreciation. Thanks to everyone who participated in this year's games and activities!


National ASC Month

August is National ASC Month.

Every August, National ASC Month recognizes ASCs across the country for the high-quality, cost-effective surgical care they provide for millions of Americans each year. Help celebrate National ASC Month this August by promoting awareness of the surgery center community and educating key policy and decision makers who represent your community about the many benefits ASCs provide.

The enduring support and advocacy of members like you are key to ensuring that the 6,200 ASCs nationwide can continue to provide top-quality care to millions of patients each year.
