(March 15, 2016) – Martin Health System, Compass Surgical Partners and leading local physicians will begin construction of an outpatient surgery center in west Port St. Lucie this summer.
The surgery center will be part of a 60,000-square foot medical office building adjacent to Tradition Medical Center. Construction on the three-story building is expected to be complete summer 2017 and will be adjacent to the existing two-story medical office building attached to Tradition Medical Center. The medical office buildings are owned and managed by Optimal Outcomes.
Ambulatory surgery centers (ASC’s) focus on providing same-day outpatient surgical care and diagnostic procedures. The new 11,000-square foot surgery center will feature two operating rooms and two procedural rooms (where procedures such as colonoscopies, pain-management and other non-invasive procedures may take place).
“We are honored to bring Compass’ national operational expertise to this project and are excited to bring best in class medical care to this important and growing community,” said DJ Hill, Chief Executive Officer of Compass Surgical Partners. “This partnership between the hospital, surgeons and Compass should yield optimal results for all our stakeholders.”
