The Missouri Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (MASCA) is an association representing the interests of ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) throughout Missouri. MASCA is poised to represent ASCs before the Missouri General Assembly, regulatory bodies, the media, and other players in the health care industry, including the Missouri Hospital Association.
Fostering and promoting the public welfare of ambulatory surgery center; disseminating useful information in the best interest of ambulatory surgery centers and the public; and for doing any and all things necessary, suitable and proper for the social, educational, and literary and scientific advancement of its membership.
State and local candidates who will go to bat for ASCs need the financial support of the medical community to win elections. MASCA competes in the legislative arena with other organizations that have PACs. As long as organizations with interests adverse to those of Missouri ASCs have PACs, MASCA needs one too.
