Seattle Orthopedic Center is an Ambulatory Surgery Center—known as an ASC. SOC is a state of the art modern health care facility focused on providing same-day orthopedic surgical care. We provide patients with a more convenient alternative to hospital-based outpatient procedures. By operating in an ASC setting, physicians are able to exercise greater control over the surgical experience than in hospital settings.Seattle Orthopedic Center has demonstrated an exceptional ability to improve quality and customer service while simultaneously reducing costs. Our physicians designed an environment that optimizes their ability to provide a high-quality patient-centered surgical experience. At a time when most developments in health care services and technology typically come with a higher price tag, ASCs stand out as an exception to the rule.
