START MAKING HEALTHY DISTRIBUTIONS.
There are three primary ways to improve your bottom line:
1. REDUCE EXPENSES
2. INCREASE CASE VOLUME
3. COLLECT MORE PER CASE
Accomplishing these things is not as easy it may seem. That is why about half of all ASCs are supported by a corporate partner with experience in management and turnarounds. You need a partner with the business acumen to manage costs, improve revenues and build cohesiveness among partners and staff.
We start by listening. Your ASC is unique, and we want to understand its intricacies. After asking many questions to paint a complete picture, we will start designing a recovery plan. We will likely begin with initiatives that will have the greatest impact.
IMPLEMENT THE RECOVERY PLAN
- Reduce staffing costs
- Reduce inventory stock levels
- Utilize group purchasing organizations (GPOs)

Collect More Per Case
