Building and/or investing in an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) is a great way to gain control over the surgical side of your practice and can also be an excellent source of ancillary revenue.  However, start-up costs can be prohibitive and building and running an ASC can be time consuming.  Not surprisingly, many physicians are tempted to "partner" with other investors as a way of sharing the start-up costs and the administrative burdens.  As discussed in the following Physician’s News Digest article, there are a host of considerations you should take into account in choosing the right ASC partner.
