The answer is, probably not. That's where the health care services comes in. They provide an objective, experienced resource to help you ask and answer the tough questions. Is an ambulatory surgical facility even feasible in your market? Where will the profits come from? What type of management structure do you want? How will you staff your centre? What are the hidden pitfalls to watch out for?
They bring twenty years of management and consulting experience to the table, along with a network of professionals to draw on for information. They can tell you if your plans will work, and if not, what you will need to modify to ensure success.
If you are considering a new ambulatory surgical centre, they will thoroughly review your circumstances: Demand for services; resources available; resources needed; existing competition. They will advise you on the best set-up for your centre, whether you should go with a free-standing facility or hospital-based, and which type of ownership would work best for you: Physician owned, hospital owned, or joint venture. When they are through, you will have a thorough plan for how to proceed that is customised specifically for your situation.

A successful facility does not just open its doors and have everything fall into place. If you want to hit the ground running, it requires extensive planning and careful management in the days before operation. Care services can assist you with the pre-operations phase of your facility, so that you can open for business more quickly, and be more successful right from the start.
Once construction is complete, what then? You might not even realise all of the components that will be required to ensure that your facility is successful and ready for business on opening day. An ambulatory surgical centre is a far different proposition than running a hospital, in both architecture and outlook, and must be designed and managed quite differently. They supply a turn-key approach to ensure that all facets of your centre are operational on opening day.
Some of the necessary services they provide include the following:
* Developing your operational policies and procedures
* Management of your start-up finances
* Hiring the most qualified staff available for all positions
* Coordinating move-in and set-up
* Setting up information systems and training staff in their use
* Negotiating contracts
* Preparation for inspection for licensing, certification and accreditation
* Don't open your doors before you're ready. Let us help you in the preliminary aspects, so your facility starts off on the right foot!
There is more to an ambulatory surgery centre than just treating the patients. In order to provide the kind of patient care and customer satisfaction that every centre wants, careful planning and management is required. In addition, your facility must be profitable, or it will not matter how skilled your staff is.
If you are considering restructuring your facility, care services can provide valuable expertise and resources. They can help you assess changes in management and structure, including the relative benefits of a free-standing facility vs. a hospital facility or a joint venture. They can help you assess whether or not to bring in new partners to your venture. Whatever your particular situation is, they can supply case studies, statistical and financial data, and years of experience to help you analyse and make proper decisions.
They have experience with dozens of facilities nationwide facing just such questions. For one client, they successfully managed the transition from a hospital outpatient surgery department (high-volume) into a fully-licensed, stand-alone centre -- in just three months! The transition was effected without any disruption to the existing surgery schedule, while maintaining all current employees.
With their assistance, you can achieve whatever transition you are planning with the least trouble and the greatest chance for long-term success.
