Ambulatory Surgery Center Development

Access new revenue and offer more convenient care with your private practice ambulatory surgery center development project.

Your Private Practice Ambulatory Surgery Center Development Project

Focused on providing relatively quick and low-risk surgeries in a non-hospital setting, an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) offers significant advantages for both patients and healthcare providers. From lower out-of-pocket costs to cleaner surgery settings, ASCs can be a big benefit to your patients.

With our decades of insider experience and carefully crafted tactics, Rockett Healthcare surgery center consultants can make the difference for your practice and guide you through the development process. We’ve carried out many successful ASC development projects, and we can do the same for you.

Overcome the Challenges of ASC Development

Get the tactics and insights you need to overcome the challenges of developing a new ambulatory surgery center that serves as a true asset for your practice.

Hospital Competition

As patients increasingly turn to ASCs for the care that they need, hospitals are increasing their efforts to stay competitive. Overcome the challenges posed by hospital systems in your area with effective planning.

Cost of Development

From ever-changing technology standards to the everyday expense of PPE supplies, ASC development can be costly. Our healthcare consultants can help you identify opportunities to save money and access new revenue.

Insurance Negotiations

Due to the ongoing consolidation of insurance networks, ASCs looking to join a network have fewer options and little negotiating power. We have insider experience that can help you access favorable rates in today’s market.

Staffing Issues

Recent years have seen an exodus of healthcare workers from the profession, making it increasingly difficult for private practices to find great providers. Our healthcare consultants can help you access top-quality candidates.

Is ASC Development Right for Your Private Practice?

The unfortunate truth is, not every surgical center project is profitable. We can help you determine whether or not ASC facility development is right for your type of care and your unique practice. Our consultants can provide insight in the following areas:

  • Orthopedics

Our healthcare consulting services can help you establish an ambulatory surgical center that provides big benefits to both you and your patients.

Lower Out-of-Pocket Costs

Thanks to their ability to offer more favorable prices, ASCs have been estimated to save patients between 45% and 60%, out of pocket. Develop an ASC to grow your revenue while saving your patients money.

Convenience & Accessibility

ASCs empower surgeons to utilize more flexibility in their scheduling, making them more accessible to patients. ASCs can also offer a more convenient location for patients to get the care that they need.

Clean, Safe Care

While hospitals provide care for all types of illnesses, ASCs do not admit patients with contagious diseases, potentially reducing the likelihood of contamination. Provide your patients with high-quality care in a clean environment.

Get Started

"Rock and I met when I was considering joining an existing endoscopy center. He helped me do the analysis that showed I'm better off doing procedures in my office and taking advantage of the rates he has negotiated with payers in the Chicago area. In addition to helping me design my center, equipping it, and getting it accredited by AAAASF, Rock has helped us implement multiple revenue streams and significantly increased professional fees over my prior rates. He also worked diligently to recover thousands of dollars in payments from our major payer that had been miscoded and denied."

"Rock Rockett helped us to successfully launch our first healthcare product in the US. His knowledge and experience were instrumental in helping us understand and navigate a complex health system. We are thankful for his guidance and are excited to see what the future holds."

Aonghus Shortt, CEO

"We contracted with Rockett Healthcare, LLC to help us develop our endoscopy center and contract with payers. Rock led a very successful contracting effort with the payers and we are earning combined facility and professional fees for office-based procedures that are 200-300% of Medicare ASC rates(depending on the payer). Rock achieved this for us by educating the local Hawaii payers on the value of office endoscopy in Hawaii's regulatory environment which makes it difficult to obtain an ASC license."

Dr Mel Ona, MD

Ohana Endoscopy Clinic

Kapulei, HI

"Rock and I met about 10 years ago when he led the negotiation process to get higher rates from our major payer for office-based procedures. He and his team helped us get our office endoscopy suite accredited and successfully completed negotiations with other payers.

More recently, I engaged Rockett Healthcare, LLC to evaluate the financial feasibility of merging with another GI group in our area. He did a terrific job of assessing the risk and reward potential of that transaction. He regularly proposes new strategies to better manage the practice and grow revenue. Rock is very prompt, forthright gets the job done expeditiously.

Rock’s contacts in the health care/insurance industry and his understanding of medical practices puts him in a unique position to advise physicians."

Suman Kaur, M.D.

Digestive Disease Associates, LTD

Hinsdale, IL

"We worked with Rock from day one of our project to develop a two room endoscopy suite for office based procedures. In addition to guiding the project from start to finish, he also has contracted with almost all of our major payers. His negotiations yielded rates with the payers that are 3x what we were getting when we did endoscopy procedures in surgery centers and hospital outpatient settings. We are grateful for his expertise and persistence in negotiating higher rates on our behalf."
