State: California
How long has your facility been an ASCA member? One year

Q.png

Since your ASC has reopened after the COVID-19 lockdown, what specialty is coming back the fastest as far as volume is concerned?

A.png

The pain management case volume has increased the fastest, followed by orthopedics; we are performing more total joint procedures weekly. Podiatry is starting to increase slowly.

Q.png

If your ASC was planning to add another specialty this year, are you still planning on proceeding, despite the COVID-19 pandemic? If yes, what specialty are you adding?

A.png

We are building a new ASC in 2021. The plan is to add various specialties, I believe, but like everyone else we don't have an exact answer at this time. We will see how the COVID-19 recovery progresses. California received an order from the governor in the middle of June that mandated wearing masks while outside due to the increase in cases in our state.
