Fredericksburg Ambulatory Surgery Center (FASC) is the only tertiary-level outpatient surgery facility in the region providing care for:
- Ear, nose, and throat (ENT)
- Pain management procedures
"Tertiary” care means that we have medical professionals on staff with expertise in areas that other outpatient surgical centers do not. And as a partner and neighbor to Mary Washington Hospital, we are supported by the full range of hospital resources.
The Care Thousands of Patients Trust
FASC has been performing same day surgeries in the community since 1987. Now with six state-of-the-art operating rooms and more than 80 professionals on staff, we perform 7,000 procedures annually, that is more than 130 cases per week.
This means your care will be delivered by professionals with lots of experience.
