 Ambulatory Surgery Center Valuation

While valuation principles remain constant, the underlying factors to be taken into consideration should differ based on the type of healthcare entity to be valued. With a team of highly-credentialed and experienced healthcare valuation experts, HealthCare Appraisers understands the intricacies that can drive value and are yet permissible considerations under current, applicable healthcare laws and regulations. For example, when valuing an ambulatory surgery center (“ASC”), we may consider payer mix, specialty and case mix, and local competition and barriers to entry, including any Certificate of Need requirements.

Recognizing that many of our clients continually employ an aggressive growth strategy founded upon ASC investment, HealthCare Appraisers provides an invaluable resource of information related to ASC activity, by way of our annual ASC Valuation Survey.
