  • Ear, nose, and throat (ENT)
  • Gynecology

"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.

Since 2016, our patients have ranked us in the top 1% of outpatient surgery centers. This demonstrates our strong commitment to quality. We are accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), a distinction that signifies full compliance with high national standards for care. In recognition of its quality and patient safety, FASC was named a Leapfrog Top Ambulatory Surgery Center in 2021, one of only 13 selected nationally for the competitive award.

Pediatrics

The staff and physicians at FASC are very accustomed to working with babies and children as surgical patients and hold pediatric certifications in advanced life support and nursing. The center has a separate pediatric recovery (post-surgical) area with rocking chairs, coloring books and kid-friendly videos to make them feel extra special after their procedure and to make mom and dad more comfortable.

Discharge

Before you go home, we will discuss your post op instructions with you and your family, schedule follow-up appointments, and check in with you by phone the next business day to make sure your recovery goes smoothly.
