Ambulatory Surgery Centers – Taking Surgery Out Of The Operating Room With Ryan Aldridge
Ambulatory surgery centers represent a future for healthcare where people can have the option to have their elective surgical procedures done outside of the hospital. A few market disruptors have been developing this business model for many years, but COVID-19 has really become a catalyst for hyper-growth in this space. Right at the forefront of one of the market disruptors is Ryan Aldridge, the VP for Business Development at Atlas Healthcare Partners. Starting out as a medical assistant, Ryan was catapulted into progressively higher positions throughout his career. The longest phase in his career is more than nine years in a number of responsibilities in the medical device company, Medtronic. He joins Samuel Gbadebo in this episode to talk about his expansive career and the place of ASCs in the future of medicine.
