Feasibility Analysis for JV ASC's

If you’re thinking about creating or syndicating a joint ventured ambulatory surgery center (JV ASC) in your community, the critical first step is to formally determine its feasibility. The performance of a comprehensive and objective Market Feasibility Analysis should be at the forefront of your initial JV ASC planning and development efforts.

A thorough and professionally conducted Feasibility Analysis should answer the key financial and qualitative questions related to the potential for a successful JV ASC venture. If you proceed with ASC development, the Feasibility Analysis then serves as a blueprint for subsequent business planning and eventual business success. For these and other important reasons, you should be hesitant to engage any Company or Consultant who promises the quickest or cheapest approach to the conducting of the Feasibility Analysis. Too many key decisions affecting the future of your ASC project will ride on the results to run the risk of basing such decisions on factors primarily related to timing or pricing of the Analysis.

Healthcare Venture Professionals specializes in JV ASC’s and has performed numerous JV ASC- specific Feasibility Analyses over the past few years. This experience allows us to provide you with the most comprehensive Analysis available at what we believe to be an extremely reasonable price. We’ll also agree on a timeframe for completion of the Analysis which permits a thorough consideration of all key factors yet meets your need for a timely completion of this important phase of the JV ASC planning process.

We’ll define total Project capital costs and prepare a 5 year set of pro forma financial and statistical statements for the ASC which include all projected case volumes, revenues and operating expenses. We’ll survey and meet with all targeted Physicians as well as the Hospital representatives to mutually develop the assumptions being used to prepare the pro forma statements. We’ll work with an Architect to initially define the facility size and scope and with Legal Counsel to consider initial corporate structure and related legal matters. In summary, we’ll work participatively with all key players to make sure that we’ve conducted a thorough and exhaustive Feasibility Analysis for the contemplated ASC.

Surgery Center Feasibility

Building an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) is an important and expensive undertaking. The decision to move ahead with an ASC Project should only be made after an objective and comprehensive Feasibility Analysis has been conducted.

HVP takes a practical and participative approach to each and every Feasibility Analysis it performs. Prospective Hospital and Physicians Owners are directly involved at each stage of the Analysis. The end result is a thorough and personalized look at all major components of the contemplated ASC. All key questions are answered. Using its proprietary Model created over many years of practical ASC experience, HVP provides you with a detailed set of Pro Forma financial and statistical projections which address all necessary financial considerations for the ASC Project from the time of initiation through the first five (5) years of ongoing operations. We’ll also work directly with your Architect, Legal Counsel or other involved external Professionals (or we can recommend such Professionals if you’d like) to make sure that no important topic or consideration is left out of your decision to move ahead with the ASC.

We at HVP sincerely believe that we conduct the best ASC Feasibility Study available in the United States. Our tailored (as opposed to a standardized or “cookie cutter”) approach to working with potential ASC Owners, coupled with our years of ASC experience, helps to ensure that you are most comfortable in making the critical “go or no go” decision when it comes to moving forward with any ASC Project.

We’re not promising you the quickest or cheapest approach to your Feasibility Analysis – only the best! Even then, we think you’ll be surprised by the speed, thoroughness and affordability of the HVP approach when measured against the magnitude of the decision you are facing and the quality of the product you’ll receive from HVP.
