What is an Ambulatory Surgery Center?

Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) provide same-day or overnight surgical care.

Presidio Surgery Center seeks to optimize our patients’ experience through clinical quality, convenience and cost savings.

Clinical Quality:

Presidio’s clinical-first commitment has led us to

  • Adopt clinical outcome metrics endorsed by the National Quality Forum
  • Participate in regional and national Quality Councils to share best practices
  • Invest in hundreds of hours of training for our clinicians
  • Become the first organization of any kind in California to achieve “Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Knee” from the Joint Commission

Convenience:

Presidio Surgery Center offers patients easy scheduling, convenient access and short wait times. Our patient satisfaction scores are among the highest in the industry. Many patients specifically cite the distinctive friendliness and efficiency of our staff.

Cost Savings:

On average, our patients pay approximately 45 percent less than they would if they had the identical procedure performed at a hospital. These savings are reflected in patients’ co-pays and co-insurance. The lower cost of care in our facilities also helps lower total healthcare insurance premiums.
