Advocacy

Whether the issue is regulatory, legislative, financial, or a matter of accreditation, ASCs are held to the same standards as any health care provider in New York State.  NYSAASC is your advocate in Albany on the issues of importance to ASC owners, operators, professional staff, and patients.

In our highly complex regulatory climate, the monitoring and tracking of developing legislation is critically important to surgery center operators and investors. Over the past twenty five years our association has enjoyed a close working relationship with elected officials, their staffs, and public policy administrators. Association members are strongly encouraged to register their opinions and to lend their expertise with NYSAASC leadership as public policy issues are being discussed and considered.
