CASCA continually works with state officials from legislative and regulatory arenas on issues that face the surgery center industry in Colorado.  CASCA also hosts tours with State Senators and Representatives to show them the benefit that surgery centers are to Colorado communities. Each year, CASCA participates in a coordinated effort from the national ASC Association to meet with Federal Representatives and Senators to discuss the national issues facing the surgery center industry.  CASCA will continue to work hard at making sure that our patients come first!
