“We were pleased to collaborate again with the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) which provides unprecedented access to industry leaders in the marketplace who have tremendous insight,” said Matthew Muller, ASA, Director at HealthCare Appraisers and author of the survey. “This year we had more than 100 respondents and highlights of the 2021 survey include insights on what is driving strong investor demand in ASCs, and commentary related to current market trends impacting ASCs.”

Respondents collectively own or manage more than 1,200 ASCs across the United States, representing approximately 20 percent of the ASC market. Participants include ASC management companies, health systems, freestanding ASCs, and ASC investment bankers and business brokers.

As with every sector of the healthcare industry, ASCs were profoundly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and associated restrictions. In this year’s survey, respondents were asked a number of COVID-19-related questions, including how COVID-19 has impacted their operations, and to what extent they have recovered from the declines in revenue that the industry experienced in the early period of the pandemic.

Additional contributing experts are Nicholas J. Janiga, ASA, Partner, Daniel L. Levin, CFA, ASA, Manager, and David Y. Lo, CFA, Director. HealthCare Appraisers’ ASC valuation experience is extensive and led by a team which has valued hundreds of ASCs for well-known surgery center management companies, health systems, physician investors, and private equity platforms. HealthCare Appraisers also provides ASCs with valuation services related to capital equipment and real estate transactions, as well as litigation support and expert witness services.
