What is an ambulatory surgery center (ASC)?

Ambulatory surgery centers—known as ASC’s—are modern health care facilities focused on providing same-day surgical care, including diagnostic and preventative procedures.

Surgery centers are a convenient alternative to hospital-based outpatient procedures and provide high-quality care. Just like in hospital operating rooms, the surgeons, nurses and medical professionals in ASC’s follow very specific protocols and procedures for the safety and well-being of our patients. Likewise, ASC’s must conduct regular, comprehensive assessments of the quality of care they provide to their patients.

Prevea surgeons perform a variety of specialty procedures at the Prevea Surgery Center in Green Bay. Procedures scheduled at this facility must be scheduled through your physician’s office.
 

Health Insurance

Most procedures and surgeries provided at Prevea Health are covered by health insurance. We will file claims on your behalf. Prior to scheduling an appointment, please verify your health insurance benefits and confirm whether Prevea is within your insurance network and if you need prior authorization.
 

Why choose an ASC?

Quality - Clinical excellence.
All healthcare facilities in the United States are highly regulated to ensure quality care and patient safety. Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs) are no exception to this rule. Our facilities are independently regulated by processes including state licensure, voluntary accreditation, and Medicare certification. Studies show this attention to quality enables ASCs to outperform hospitals when it comes to clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction.

Value - Efficient. Cost-saving.
ASCs work to provide the best surgical experience possible at a lower cost to patients. Because they are more efficient when it comes to same-day surgery, patients typically pay less co-insurance at an ASC for the same procedure received in a hospital setting.

Convenience - Accessible. Time-saving.
There are over 5,000 ASCs across the country and with each one comes more patient choice. As the industry grows, so does the list of both outpatient surgeries and non-surgical procedures available to patients in a local, personalized ASC setting. And because only scheduled procedures and surgeries are performed in ASCs, scheduling of facilities and resources becomes more efficient, which means fewer surgery delays for patients.
 
  • Patients can conveniently access registration, waiting rooms, surgical suites and recovery rooms, all in the same location.
  • All surgeries at the Prevea Surgery Center are scheduled, so your procedure will never be delayed due to an emergency surgery.

Because of our surgery schedule, we know exactly how many staff members we need to serve our patients each day. Never being understaffed means we can truly focus on our patients.

The Prevea Surgery Center is located on the same campus as Prevea St. Mary’s Health Center on Shawano Avenue in Green Bay.
