Healthcare Facility Management

ASC

Managing the day-to-day operations of a surgical center can be a daunting challenge for even the most business-savvy physicians and ASC staff. Facing reimbursement challenges and ensuring quality care and patient satisfaction requires efficient execution at every level.  Navigating these mission-critical tasks is key to the financial success of an ASC, whether it is a single or a multispecialty facility. NSP shoulders daily demands while guiding ASC owners through such decisions as whether to partner with a local hospital or hospital system; to associate with an ACO, or to recruit new physicians or specialists. Our combined experience and expertise helps an ASC avoid common pitfalls and costly mistakes.

Outpatient Surgical Hospital

Existing Outpatient Surgical Hospitals seek the same efficiencies and quality care long associated with ASCs. To accomplish those goals, ASC development and management companies are often sought after for their expertise in ensuring the availability of advanced treatment options and the delivery of excellent patient care.

HOPD

Hospitals have realized the value of operating their Outpatient Departments with the same efficiencies as surgery centers and look to proven ASC management companies like NSP to manage those departments within the hospital setting.

Physician Practices & Site of Service

The NSP team has extensive experience in developing and managing physician practices and site of service facilities, including the conversion of office-based facilities to ambulatory surgery centers when appropriate.

Extended Recovery Care Centers

Technological advancements have made performing complex procedures in ambulatory surgery centers feasible. Spinal procedures, total joint replacements, and various bariatric surgical procedures are now possible in surgical center settings, often with the aid of an extended recovery center option. Excellent clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction have increased the demand for such arrangements.

Stand Alone Emergency Rooms

Freestanding Emergency Rooms are growing in popularity throughout the country in response to the growing number of dissatisfied patients visiting overburdened hospital emergency rooms.  These healthcare facilities offer the highest quality of emergency medical care in state of the art facilities in numerous neighborhoods throughout the U.S.

Freestanding emergency rooms are revolutionizing the delivery of adult and pediatric emergency care for both major and minor issues.  Facilities are fully equipped with diagnostic (CT, Ultrasound, and X-ray) and laboratory services.

Vendor Contract Negotiations

The supplies and services required to maintain quality care can be costly, but failure to maintain proper inventory can prove even more so. Our team will assess your existing contracts and negotiate on your behalf to increase financial gains and reduce losses. Partnering with NSP grants your center access to our network of negotiated national pricing for supplies and services, including:

  • Evaluation and establishment of medical/surgical/pharmaceutical GPO and distributor relationships and other supply contracts.
  • Negotiation and implementation of all contracted services and ancillary agreements to include anesthesia, biomedical, linen, HVAC, hazardous waste and other necessary services.

Physician Relations

Maintaining positive internal medical staff relations is vital, and requires balancing the regulatory and business needs of the center against the needs of the physicians who own and utilize the facility. The NSP team will work  to develop and implement medical staff bylaws and comprehensive rules and regulations to ensure optimal physician relations.

We will also manage oversight of all credentialing processes, communications with surgeons, and formation and coordination of a Medical Executive Committee if needed.
