Celebrate National ASC Month

This August, facilities around the country will host open houses and facility tours for elected officials, the media and members of their community to promote awareness of ASCs and celebrate National ASC Month.

Hosting a tour creates a personal connection between you and your elected officials that could directly affect ASC-related legislation and regulations. These events raise the profile of ASCs, help educate the public about the high-quality care ASCs offer and can secure support for ASCs during key policy-making deliberations.

Congress is in recess during the month of August, so this is the perfect time to host a facility tour for your representative(s). To get started, email Adam Parker.
