Northstar Healthcare is a strategic partner with physicians in the development and management of ambulatory surgical centers (ASC). The dynamic ASC industry today accounts for a large and growing percentage of all U.S. surgical procedures – as surgeons, patients and payors recognize a compelling value proposition: superior medical care, increased patient satisfaction and lower costs for healthcare delivery.
Northstar’s business model is grounded in a simple objective: to maximize opportunities for our physician partners. We acquire majority stakes in ASCs — with surgeons continuing as equity partners — and assume all management responsibility for the centers. We are focused on maximizing organic growth in our centers, driving growth in profitability through enhanced marketing and improved operating procedures.
This structure enables surgeons to focus their attention where they need to — on providing the highest standard of patient care — while we build value in the ASC, benefiting both the surgeons and Northstar’s shareholders.
