Welcome

The health care industry is constantly evolving and many forces are competing to guide and shape this process.  Working together to create opportunities helps all of us achieve our goals.

The mission of the Maryland Ambulatory Surgery Association is to ensure the choice of quality health care at cost effective rates.

There is strength in numbers and power in unity.  Competing interests in the health care industry are threatened by ambulatory surgery centers and the choice they provide to health care consumers.  This powerful opposition is well-equipped and continues to initiate policy adverse to freestanding surgery centers.  MASA can help you fight back.
