Karen Spencer Appointed to Virginia Ambulatory Surgery Association Board

Last Updated:

Karen J. Spencer has been appointed to the board of the Virginia Ambulatory Surgery Association (VASA). She is the CEO of Virginia Eye Consultants and has extensive experience leading outpatient surgery practices.

She joined Virginia Eye Consultants in 2008 and, prior to that, was the CEO of a 20 provider gastroenterology group with two large surgery centers in Denver, Colorado.

VASA represents Virginia’s ambulatory surgery industry through educational programs, legislative action and collaboration with other organizations on local and national issues of importance to the industry. Earlier this month, Spencer joined members from VASA and the national Ambulatory Surgery Center Association in Washington, D.C. to meet with legislators and discuss the quality, outcomes and cost savings ASCs can provide to the overall health care system when compared to hospital outpatient departments.

Virginia Eye Consultants is one of the largest ophthalmic medical/surgical specialty practices in the Southeastern United States and is among the most recognized in the nation for clinical excellence and surgical outcomes. The company employs nearly 200 people and cares for over 75,000 patients each year.

In 2011, Spencer was honored with a Hampton Roads Top Women in Business Award. Under her leadership, Virginia Eye Consultants has earned recognition from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as a Top U.S. Small Business in the Southeast. The company also received a Hampton Roads Small Business of the Year Award and has been recognized with four Roaring 20 Awards as one the fastest growing businesses in the region.
