Within the healthcare industry, ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are some of the most common physician-owned entity types. Consequently, there is frequently a need to determine the value of these shares as new physicians buy-in and retiring physicians depart. With this in mind, HealthCare Appraisers, Inc. developed a valuation survey in 2002 specific to ASCs. In each of the past six years, they have surveyed key management and development companies operating in the ASC industry to identify trends in both the pricing of ASC ownership interests and the management fees charged to ASCs by management companies.
