May 6-12, 2020 - With the concurrence of surgery center openings and National Nurses Week, it was the perfect timeto celebrate our deserving center staff. We admire their character, grit, and compassion.
Most staff were just getting back to work, as many surgery centers were cleared for elective surgery. They celebrated with catered breakfast and a small gift.
Founder of modern nursing Florence Nightingale once said, "I attribute my success to this; I never gave nor took any excuse." We see each staff person live out these words and couldn’t be more thankful for them.
Raleigh, N.C. and Waco, T.X. – April 29, 2020 – Compass Surgical Partners, LLC, is excited to partner with a group of local physicians and Ascension at Fish Pond Surgery Center (“FPSC”), in Waco, T.X. FPSC is a multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center providing services in orthopedics, ophthalmology, gynecology, general surgery, pain management, urology and oral surgery. For decades, FPSC has maintained a reputation as a safe, comfortable, compassionate place for outpatient surgery. The center continues to expand its service to increase its value to residents of McLennan County and surrounding areas. FPSC has 5 operating rooms and 1 procedure room, is accredited by AAAHC, and maintains its state licensure and Medicare certification.
Compass is honored to be a part of Fish Pond Surgery Center and to partner with a such a committed group of providers. We expect Fish Pond to remain the best option for outpatient surgery in Waco for decades more.
Raleigh, N.C.–March 16, 2020 – Compass surgery center administrators balance the management of healthcare facilities amid global materials shortages and rising public health concerns, while maintaining their commitment to excellent patient care. Compass is grateful for the administrators’ courage and poise in confronting challenges, including the staffing and scheduling of their centers.
Administrators are committed to collaborating on protocols, best practices, and preparedness, as well as the current state of COVID-19 in the U.S., following guidelines from both The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). A consolidator of expert information, The Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) affirms ASCs have an opportunity, in this time, to provide safe surgical services to their communities, without depleting essential resources necessary to care for those who are ill and emergent, from COVID-19 or otherwise. In turn, as Compass administrators continue operating their centers, they can substantially reduce the number of patients needing inpatient care, and therefore ease the burden on hospitals.
