Joan Dentler – What to Know If You’re Considering a Hospital/Physician ASC Joint Venture | This Week in Surgery Centers
Here’s what to expect on this week’s episode. 🎙️
Joint ventures or hospital-owned ASCs are one of the fastest-growing partnerships right now.
Why? Outpatient environments are looking better than ever thanks to payer contracts, value-based care, high deductibles, new technology, improved anesthesia services, and more.
Joan Dentler is the Founder of Avanza Healthcare Strategies, and she is sharing why hospitals are taking an increased interest in ASCs, the challenges both parties will face, and how to achieve short and long-term success. Here are a few takeaways from the episode.
• For hospitals, remember that 50% of something is better than 0% of everything. You can’t consider a potential partnership with an ASC as strictly a money play, but instead, as the industry continues to favor outpatient procedures, it’s a strategy for long-term success.
• For ASCs, there are many scenarios where partnering with a hospital might be the best path forward. One example – if you have many senior partners looking to wind down or retire, it might be the perfect time to start looking at a hospital as a potential buyer.
• A partnership will not be successful without an aligned vision of what success looks like. Other factors include mutual risk tolerance, trust and respect, and constant, transparent communication.
