Why do ambulatory surgery centers need business insurance?

An ASC is similar to a hospital, but with fewer staff and resources. If a patient suffers a complication, or is released too early from care, the resulting legal costs could overwhelm your small practice. Business insurance provides financial protection against lawsuits, data breaches, and property damage. Some policies may be required by state laws or a commercial lease.
