What is an ambulatory surgery center?

Ambulatory surgery centers are modern healthcare facilities focused on providing same-day surgical care including diagnostic and treatment procedures. They offer patients the convenience of having their surgical procedures performed safely outside the hospital setting—often at a cost savings when compared with going to a hospital.
