Increased Revenue and Improved Coverage at a High Volume ASC

By January 21, 2020



A high volume ASC with staffing shortages successfully increased its revenue and revamped its staffing models with the help of talented Recruiters and Operations staff at Xenon Health!




An ambulatory surgical center (ASC) in a major metropolitan area sought to revamp its anesthesia department due to recent staffing shortages and a high case cancellation rate, which were causing revenue loss. The high volume ASC selected Xenon Health, a comprehensive anesthesia management organization, over numerous competitors and staffing agencies. Considering the ASC’s high volume and demanding coverage needs, it was clear that strategic planning and operational efficiency were necessary to provide the utmost anesthesia services.




 With two operating rooms, the ASC needed consistent coverage from two board-certified anesthesiologists. Additionally, owners and administrators wanted to perform a thorough screening and conduct a formal interview of any and all potential anesthesiologists. Our team of highly qualified and experienced recruiters at Xenon Health were committed to recruiting only the top anesthesiologists from the region and performed a rigorous search to identify the top talent in the field. The recruiters also performed thorough background checks and interviews to qualify its anesthesia providers. Ultimately, our recruiters successfully identified two board-certified anesthesiologists (both with relevant experience) and credentialed them to provide anesthesia
coverage on an ongoing basis.




The client was highly satisfied with the anesthesia provider identified by Xenon Health. Additionally, client physicians provided positive feedback on the performance of our anesthesia providers. To further assist with anesthesia coverage needs, our recruiters also identified four back up anesthesiologists, available on a per diem basis to cover any last-minute cancellations. Overall, the ASC witnessed a significant reduction in the number of case cancellations and was able to secure consistent anesthesia coverage. Lastly, the ASC was highly satisfied with the increased revenue and enhance operational efficiency it experienced as a result of Xenon Health’s services.
