Martin Health System to Expand its Ambulatory Surgery Center Capacity
Raleigh, N.C. and Stuart, Fla. – March 7, 2018 – In early 2018, Martin Health System (MHS), Compass Surgical Partners, and a group of local Gastroenterologists will open Stuart Surgery Center in Stuart, Fla. The new outpatient facility will be specifically equipped to perform gastroenterology procedures. It will allow local patients undergoing screening and treatment for digestive diseases to have procedures completed in a safe, convenient, and affordable environment.
The surgery center will be easy to access, located at 2096 SE Ocean Blvd in Stuart. After opening in early 2018, the center will seek accreditation from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), which surveys and accredits surgery centers that exhibit the highest standard of quality.
MHS and Compass have an existing partnership, focused on the development of additional outpatient surgery options for residents of Martin Health System’s service area. Currently, the two organizations operate Tradition Surgery Center, located on the campus of Tradition Medical Center in Port St. Lucie. The new GI center in Stuart represents an expansion of the partnership. Martin Health is dedicated to meeting the needs of the communities it serves and believes this will be a valuable service for local residents.
“Our group of gastroenterologists are excited to utilize the new GI center in Stuart,” said Dr. Ben Ngo, a Gastroenterologist affiliated with Martin Health System. “It will allow us to perform procedures in a more efficient setting, which in turn will lower the cost of care for our patients.”
The new surgery center will be managed by Compass Surgical Partners
“Compass is proud to be partnered with Martin Health System and a group of engaged, community minded-physicians,” said Scott White, Florida Market President for Compass Surgical Partners. “This partnership is centered around the singular goal of creating new, high-quality, high-value surgical options for residents of Martin and St. Lucie counties. Martin is highly committed to this goal and we are excited about helping them execute on their vision.”
