Virtua Health's Affiliated Ambulatory Surgery Centers Shine on Annual Newsweek List
October 25, 2023 - Virtua Health’s joint-venture ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are once again well represented on Newsweek’s list of the best ASCs in the nation for 2024. ASCs are also known as same-day surgery centers, which Newsweek refers to as “a cornerstone of modern health care.”
Virtua is affiliated with 10 of the 30 New Jersey ASCs to receive a place on the Newsweek list this cycle. This lauded group includes the Surgical Center of South Jersey (Mount Laurel), which earned the number one spot in the state for the second consecutive year. Surgical Specialists at Princeton and the Center for Ambulatory and Minimally Invasive Surgery (Eatontown) are ranked fourth and fifth in the state, respectively.
Two additional honored ASCs are outside of New Jersey. They are Huntington Valley Surgery Center in Pennsylvania and Limestone Surgery Center in Wilmington, Delaware. Limestone Surgery Center is the only ASC in Delaware featured on the Newsweek list.
“Virtua’s network of ASCs has grown tremendously over the past few years, reflecting shifting preferences among patients and the enhanced capacity of outpatient procedures,” said Barry Graf, senior vice president of partnerships and business development at Virtua Health. “We now have 40 ASC partners across three states, united in their commitment to quality, safety, and experience.”
Newsweek’s online report explained how its annual listing is intended to empower consumers:
“Across the United States, there are thousands of Medicare-certified ambulatory surgery centers encompassing various surgical specialties, including orthopedic surgery, cardiac surgery, eye surgery and spinal surgery. To help our readers make informed health care decisions, Newsweek has partnered with the respected global research firm Statista for the fourth consecutive year to name America's Best Ambulatory Surgery Centers.”
