ASC Growth: From Coast to Coast
(and a lot in between!)
For healthcare professionals, the year 2011 was characterized by a surge of ASCs across the nation. Every state made strides to increase the number of ASC facilities. Most notably were two populous states on either side of the country: New York and California. These states were tied for second in the growth of ASCs with thirteen new openings or expansions in the past year. The bulk of California’s ASC growth – whether solidified plans or the finalized completion of an ASC facility, gravitated toward southern California, with only a few north of Los Angeles County. New York saw the openings of a variety of surgery centers, such as those specializing in endoscopy,
vascular and orthopedic services.
When it comes to the highest bidder of ASCs, Texas is the winner by one. Texas had a number of plans and official openings of surgery centers in major cities such as Houston, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Dallas and others.
In total, 175 surgery centers either officially opened their doors, made notable progress or were announced within 2011. The three leading states constitute approximately 22% of this growth; California, alone, is credited with a little over 7%. This tremendous growth of ASCs is in no way expected to stop with 2011. The Global Orthopedic Devices market, for example, is projected to reach an astonishing $57.9 billion in the next four years.
When broken down into subcomponents, this tremendous financial budget can be attributed to the aging of the baby boomer population as well as the increased demand for spinal devices, the fastest growing medical device. Further, with the global endoscopy systems market projected to reach 4.9 billion by 2017 and the anesthesia equipment market expected to grow 7.4% in merely the next two years, the growth of ASCs is a healthcare trend here to stay.
