Providers Properties and Performance

May 18, 2021

Trisha’s guest today is Aric Burke, CEO of Atlas Healthcare Partners. Atlas owns and operates ambulatory surgery centers together with Banner Health through its markets. We talk about the ASC’s role in the healthcare ecosystem as well as Atlas’s business model. Atlas not only offers a convenient location for its patients and a lower cost of care for both the hospital and the patient, but also allows the physicians a convenient way to perform cases and gives that same convenience to the entrepreneurial investors in terms of managing both operations and the real estate.
