The pandemic and the ASC: How surgery center leaders are managing teams to build a stronger, safer future
Many ASCs were anticipating growth and prosperity in 2020 — until COVID-19 struck.
Before the pandemic, ASCs were projecting 6 to 7 percent growth driven by lower surgical costs, changes in reimbursement rules and greater convenience for patients. Many of these factors haven't changed, but new challenges regarding supply management and vendor partnerships have arisen.

- Materials managers are playing a more important role than ever.
- Vendor relationships based on long-term strategic goals are beneficial.
