Salary Survey Results Available in July

ASCA will release the results from its 2019 Salary & Benefits Survey in July. The survey collects national, regional and state data on more than 20 ASC positions and is a valuable resource that helps ASCs attract and retain the best employees. The survey allows ASCs to com- pare their compensation packages with similar facilities, negotiate a raise or establish salary and bene- fits for a new position. It also allows ASCs to view personalized reports comparing their information with oth- ers in the same geographic region, with a similar number of employees, in the same specialty and more. This year’s survey debuts new features like an N/A answer option for questions that don’t apply to your facility and new questions about the infection pre- ventionist position. All ASCs were invited to take the

survey free of charge. ASCA members and nonmembers who completed at least 40 percent of the survey will receive personalized results for free. Results also are available for purchase for ASCs that did not participate. For more information, visit ascassociation. org/salarysurvey.
