Personal Statement

As the CEO of a leading ASC company, I have devoted my career to the business of medicine enabling physicians to deliver high quality patient care via an efficient work environment in ASCs and specialty hospitals. Because of the clinical autonomy we provide, ASCs are valued by the physician and hospitals for more than their “ancillary income”. The investment income from these ventures enables many physicians to augment their declining professional fees but the efficiency enables them to serve more patients in less time in a high quality environment, enhancing the value of their practices. We are partners with both physicians and hospitals, providing the professional unbiased management that both need in order to trust each other.
