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.
