About Artisan Medical
Artisan Medical partners with selected health care providers and our Strategic Partners to open and operate single-specialty ASCs or Artisan Centers™. Founded in 2003, we have grown by building relationships with key leaders in the ASC industry. It is our mission to provide first-class development and management services that will enable our ASC health care providers to deliver the best possible healthcare experience to their patients. Patients win because they receive better care at a lower cost in a pleasant, comfortable surgical facility. Health care providers win because they gain control over their surgical practice which leads to improved productivity and reduced risks.
Our proven cost-saving strategies enable us to provide you with facilities and services that are “best in class.” Most importantly, when unexpected events occur, our team of experts is ready and able to develop a solution. That’s why we are proud to offer our unique “no surprises” performance guarantee.

“I enjoy a collegial relationship with Jesse Chamberlain, president of Artisan, and have been impressed with his professional, straightforward development of surgery center process. Outlining professional and support staffing needs, anticipating patient flow patterns, and development of actual center physical structure are expertly planned. These efforts therefore generate an atmosphere where excellent patient care is not only possible, but actually delivered. Positive surgical outcomes, with focus on patient and family satisfaction are both considerations in the development of the administrative, medical, and nursing standards of care utilized at the centers. Our collaborative relationship relies on mutual open communication and professional trust. I am happy to part of the patient care team here.”
- Chris Romanowski, CRNA, president of Rest Assured, providing anesthesia services at several surgery centers established, organized and managed by Artisan Medical.
“Partnering with Jesse Chamberlain six years ago to open my own ASC has been one of the most gratifying decisions of my career. Performing surgery in a beautiful, efficient, state-of-the-art center has been an absolute delight for both me and my patients. Jesse has been an excellent partner in that he has been extremely dedicated to the center and has played a major role in its financial success.
The beauty of the ASC is that I have been able to do the same number of cases in half the time compared with a hospital setting . At the same time, I have increased my personal income significantly. I cannot thank Jesse enough for convincing me to partner with him in this wonderful project.”
