FRESH MEADOWS, N.Y., Aug. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Taking place in August, National ASC Month serves to promote awareness of the safe, affordable, exceptional care that ASCs provide.  Queens Endoscopy (QEC) is taking advantage of the opportunity to promote awareness and educate key policy and decision makers about the benefits of ASCs with a visit from Senator Anthony Avella, from the 11th New York Senate district.

During National ASC Month, ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) celebrate the high-quality care they provide to surgical patients across the country—giving community members and public officials an inside look at the patient-centered services ASCs offer and insight as to why more patients and doctors are choosing these medical facilities for their health care needs.  For many patients, ASCs offer a better way to have outpatient surgery. These physician-driven facilities put the patient—not the institution—at the center of the care.

National ASC Month is made possible by the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA); this national membership association represents ASCs and provides advocacy and resources to assist centers. At ASCA, they develop and maintain working relationships with legislative and regulatory bodies in order to facilitate visits such as the one from the Senator. 

"We are honored that Senator Avella has taken an interest in our center and look forward to showing him around, as well as meeting our staff and providers. We all work very hard to provide the highest quality care to our community of patients and appreciate the opportunity to discuss the value Queens Endoscopy brings to the area with this distinguished public official," said a center representative.
