Joshua A. Siegel, MDNewington, NH – Dr. Josh Siegel was named to a recent list of Top Physician Leaders in the Ambulatory Surgery Center ASC Industry.  Individuals on the list were chosen because they have each made a significant contribution to the ASC industry.  Dr. Siegel is one of the founding partners of Northeast Surgical Care (NESC) in Newington, NH.  The freestanding (ASC) features a single OR that regularly functions at maximum capacity and handles approximately 1,800 cases each year.  NESC was the first freestanding ASC in the state of New Hampshire and as a result was met with a significant amount of resistance.   Following lengthy legal battles, Northeast Surgical Care was built and served as a foundation for other ASCs in New Hampshire.  There are now more than 20 ASCs throughout the state. By accommodating patients more quickly and efficiently, Northeast Surgical Care can offer services at a significant cost savings compared to what patients would face at many other facilities.  Many insurance plans are now building in incentives for patients to encourage them to use ASCs for outpatient procedures because they are more cost-effective.
