Our Mission and Values
The goals of any ASC should be consistent with and supportive of the individual and collective goals of the physician or hospital owners from a business, personal, and community-service perspective. Physician or hospital ASCs should be locally governed and controlled. A conservative approach with strong emphasis on legal and regulatory compliance will be used in dealing with all aspects of physician or hospital ASCs to include feasibility analysis/proforma development, syndication/private placement offerings, development and management services, and provision of consultative/support services. Frequent, open and effective communication between and among all parties will directly contribute to the ongoing success of the ASC. Physician/hospital collaboration is a preferred healthcare partnership model. Physicians and hospitals should proactively seek to identify and pursue opportunities for formal collaboration. Physician/hospital partnerships should be seen as a long-term proposition which is supportive of an overall collaborative strategy. In many situations, physician/hospital collaboration can best serve the long-term interests of patients and the community as well as all hospital and physician owners. The results achieved by a formal partnership/joint venture should serve to preserve and strengthen “traditional” physician/hospital relationships. The value of any ASC will be maximized for physicians or hospital owners by achieving optimal patient satisfaction, doctor/user satisfaction, and financial results.
