President's Message

From Larry Trenk

Larry Trenk

Welcome to NJAASC and New Jersey's Resource for Ambulatory Surgery Centers. 

We are very pleased to be celebrating 20 years supporting the surgery centers throughout New Jersey. 

Given the seemingly infinite challenges confronting our centers, please rest assured that the Association is vigorously engaged in efforts to protect and preserve the best interests of its membership. Whether it be the recent articles defiling unlicensed and/or licensed centers or the various legislative affronts or myriad regulatory initiatives, the Association is firmly in the trenches in all areas and venues.

Finally, our vigilance as an Association is essential to shaping the future course of the ASC industry in New Jersey, I implore all members to be involved in the activities of the Association in any manner. Greater member participation is a recipe for our continued success.

Thank you again. Larry Trenk
