Welcome to Earnhart & Associates, Inc.

Earnhart & Associates, Inc. is a healthcare consulting firm that specializes in ambulatory care services with primary focus on surgery center development and management, hospital outpatient (HOPD) development and management, freestanding emergency room development and management, Urgent Care Centers, radiation oncology facilities, infusion centers, and Office Based Surgical Facilities. We have been providing high quality, cost-effective consulting, development, and management services for over 25 years.

We provide State Licensure for all health care facility types.

The industry has changed since the 2012 elections. Whatever your political affiliation or views on the state of healthcare viability are, the change is here, it is real, and it is going to stay.

Hospitals and their growth in surgical H.O.P.D.s in the coming years are going to change the shape of outpatient surgery in the United States. It has already begun for many. Half of the business of Earnhart & Associates today is the developing and management of hospital outpatient surgical departments (HOPD). This is occurring in new facilities and in the conversion of existing ASCs in locations close to our hospital clients.

There are 10,000 new Americans turning 65 years of age and going on Medicare - every day! And every day for the next 20 years! Do you really think healthcare is going to remain the same?

Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are going to drive healthcare reimbursement going forward. Are you prepared and do you have the right tools to maximize cost reduction and at the same time increase your outcomes?

This is not the time to give up equity in your hospital or surgery center. This is the time to circle the wagons and function like a business. Healthcare is a huge opportunity for many to become successful while improving our delivery system, but not without purpose, vision, and the courage to make the difficult decisions.
