Two Memphis-area Centers Named Top Ambulatory Surgery Centers

Two (2) Memphis-area ambulatory surgery centers are among the 13 Top ASCs nationally named by The Leapfrog Group in the inaugural year of the Top ASC awards – Wolf River Surgery Center in Germantown and Le Bonheur East Surgery Center in Memphis, both affiliated with the Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare system

The competitive, national award, honors the top performing ASCs as identified through the annual Leapfrog ASC Survey. Selection was based on mastery of quality standards across several areas of ASC performance including staffing, patient experience, hand hygiene, surgical checklist protocols, and error prevention.

“Since over 60% of all surgeries in the U.S. take place in an ASC or Hospital Outpatient Surgery Department, the quality and safety of these providers is increasingly important to patients and their employers, who can use the data for decision-making and contracting, “ said Cristie Upshaw Travis, CEO of the Memphis Business Group on Health (MBGH).  “We are excited to have two of the 13 Top ASCs right here in the Memphis-area. Their top performance reflects a commitment to quality and safety not only in hospitals but across the system.”
