The Surgery Center of Beaufort is part of a growing national healthcare trend among doctors and patients looking for quality patient care that is also cost effective. Today, more than 80 percent of surgeries in America are outpatient and one of every five of these procedures is performed in an ambulatory surgery center (ASC). An estimated twelve million Americans will seek care this year in any of the 4,000 ASCs across the country. Many surgeries that required complex procedures and overnight stays just a few years ago are now being performed safely and successfully in ASCs.
The Surgery Center of Beaufort, a partnership between local physicians and Beaufort Memorial Hospital, is an asset to the community, contributes to the local property and income tax bases, and provides quality jobs. Since 1970, when the first ambulatory surgery center was opened in Arizona, local surgeons have provided high-quality, cost-effective surgical care to patients. The Surgery Center of Beaufort, founded in 2000, performs over 4000 procedures annually by its 43 affiliated physicians and high-quality staff.
In addition to providing high-quality health care and excellent service, ASCs save patients and insurers money. One study shows Medicare and its beneficiaries pay an average of $320 more for a procedure performed in a hospital outpatient department than they would pay for the same procedure if performed in an ASC.
