New York City’s financially strapped hospitals are worried they could be put out of business by a new threat: rival “same-day” surgery centers that are popping up across the five boroughs, The Post has learned.
There are 36 so-called ambulatory surgery centers licensed in the city, according to the state Health Department. Many of them are owned and operate independently of hospitals.
Medical experts said the same-day surgery centers are the wave of the future as large hospitals become less important — the reason two Brooklyn hospitals are trying to block a new facility from opening in their midst. http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/b...OsRoE1LFLsHWRJ
