Celebrate National ASC Month
Join ASCs across the country this August to celebrate 50 years of ASCs during National ASC Month. Each August, facilities around the country 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.
While the COVID-19 pandemic presents novel challenges and changes to the normal form of National ASC Month, it also presents new opportunities. Policymakers and the public are uniquely focused on the healthcare sphere, and it has never been more crucial that elected officials understand the ASC model and the role ASCs can play in supporting healthcare delivery in this and future crises.
Though in more typical years, hosting an in-person facility tour was a great way to create a personal connection with your elected officials that could directly affect ASC-related legislation and regulations, during this time, ASCA staff look forward to working with you to help raise the profile of your ASC and educate the public in new ways. You and your staff have a great story to tell about the high-quality care ASCs offer, and your input is critical to securing support for ASCs during key policymaking deliberations.
This year, National ASC Month will coincide with the August congressional recess as well as the Democratic National Convention August 17–20 and the Republican National Convention August 24–27. For more information, visit ASCA's National ASC Month page or write Adam Parker.
