We’re pleased that the safe provision of elective surgery in outpatient surgery centers was recently validated by a study conducted by the ASC Quality Collaborative, showing that of the 84,446 patients included in the survey, only 16 of those tested positive for COVID-19 within 14 days after their procedures.
