ASCA Faults Kaiser Health News and USA Today for Sensationalism and Misrepresentation of Safety and Quality in ASCs

The leadership of the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA), the country’s leading representative and advocate of ambulatory surgery centers, today sharply rebuked both Kaiser Health News (KHN) and USA Today for their March 2, 2018, report about outpatient surgery, “As Surgery Centers Boom, Patients Are Paying With Their Lives,” by Christina Jewett and Mark Alesia. “KHN and USA Today have done a terrible disservice to their readers in their article about ambulatory surgery centers by failing to accurately and responsibly report the high-quality, high-value outcomes occurring in ambulatory surgery centers today,” said William Prentice, chief executive officer of ASCA.
