Ambulatory healthcare is an integral and growing part of the healthcare system, according to New York City-based Simone Healthcare Development, a healthcare architecture firm.

Simone Healthcare Development shared four benefits of ambulatory healthcare:

1. Access to multiple specialties. Ambulatory healthcare centers offer access to multiple specialties under one roof, while specialist offices focus on one area.

2. Lower costs. Care at ambulatory healthcare organizations is typically associated with lower costs compared to inpatient care at a hospital.

3. Convenient locations. Constructing an ambulatory healthcare center is easier and more cost effective than building a hospital, which helps expand access to care for patients in remote areas.

4. Increased patient satisfaction. Due to the typically shorter wait times and higher quality of care at ambulatory healthcare organizations, patients report higher satisfaction than at hospitals.
