2017 ASC Survey PictureWe are pleased to announce the results of HealthCare Appraisers’ 2017 ASC Valuation Survey. Since 2003, HealthCare Appraisers, Inc. has surveyed the ambulatory surgery center (ASC) industry to determine trends in the value and characteristics of ASC ownership interests and management fees charged to ASCs. Twenty-four respondents, representing well over 700 surgery centers throughout the country, responded to this year’s survey..

During 2016, our respondents were actively searching for potential acquisitions to grow the amount of ASCs under ownership. 17% of respondents have 11 to 30 ASCs under ownership, and 26% of respondents have 31 or more ASCs under ownership.

Respondents indicated significant levels of acquisition activity in the ASC space, with 41% reporting the acquisition of between one and five centers, 9% reporting the acquisition of between six and 10 centers, and 10% reporting the acquisition of 11 or more centers in 2016. 41% of respondents did not acquire an ASC in 2016.

For 2017, acquisition activity is expected to remain high, as 43% of our respondents plan to purchase between one and five ASCs, 26% plan to purchase between six and ten ASCs, and 9% plan to purchase 16 or more ASCs. 22% of respondents are not planning to purchase over the next 12 months.
