The Leap to Corporate Partnership: The Advantages May Surprise You

Physicians are experts at patient care, but their medical training doesn’t include the financial aspects of running a profitable clinic. Even with excellent outcomes and above average patient satisfaction, the bottom line can be flat or even follow a discouraging downward trend.

The eight physician owners at Atlantic Gastro Surgicenter, LLC, better known as ACCESS, felt that their ASC could be doing better and took steps to make that happen.

In November of 2016, ACCESS and PE finalized their corporate partnership. The outcome has been outstanding, with updated equipment, better contracts, an improved organizational framework, and a brighter bottom line-all within the first year of business.
