June 11, 2020 – Odessa, F.L. and Raleigh, N.C. – Compass Surgical Partners announced a partnership with local physicians in the newly constructed Comprehensive Outpatient Joint & Spine Institute (COJSI) in Odessa, FL. COJSI specializes in total joints, sports medicine, spine procedures, and pain management. This partnership brings together multiple reputable physician groups in the area, including surgeons from Florida Joint Care Institute, NeuSpine, and WCMI Ortho.
“This surgery center will deliver a world-class patient experience that exceeds hospital care,” said Dr. Jennifer L. Cook, total joint surgeon and partner in COJSI. “As a center of excellence for outpatient joint, spine, and orthopaedic cases, COJSI will bring exceptional care to our patients in Odessa and the surrounding area.”
Slated to open this summer, COJSI has 3 operating rooms in a 12,000-square-foot facility, with specialized staff to care for orthopaedic and spine cases. COJSI offers patients the option to have their orthopedic, spine, or pain management procedure performed outside the hospital setting. Because it is focused on musculoskeletal procedures, COJSI will be able to deliver superior patient care, more conveniently to its patients, and at lower costs.
Superior Patient Care, including the Latest Robotic Technology
March 29, 2021 – Clearwater, FL, and Raleigh, NC – Orthopaedic Associates of West Florida (OAWF), Orthopaedic Specialties of Tampa Bay, and Compass partner in the premier joint, spine and orthopaedic center in West Florida. The partnership brings together world-class joint, spine and orthopaedic surgeons at Tampa Bay Joint and Spine Center (TBJS).
This brand new facility will be conveniently located at 26034 US Highway 19 N and is slated to open late 2021. It will have multiple state-of-the-art operating theaters, an extended surgical stay suite, and a dedicated team of specialists concentrating solely on joint and spine care to musculoskeletal patients in the Tampa Bay area.
Compass CEO DJ Hill said, “Given I grew up in Clearwater, this is an important project for me personally. Local residents, including perhaps my parents, will soon be able to receive superior care without going to the hospital. Patients will walk out of the center just hours after having a joint replaced. That means they’ll return to their active lives sooner.”
Dr. David Howe performs the first robotic-arm-assisted total knee replacement in an ASC in western North Carolina.
In February 2021, Dr. Howe utilized the Stryker Mako Robotic Arm to perform the knee arthroplasty—the first at Kimel Park Surgery Center (KPSC). KPSC is one of the first freestanding surgery centers in North Carolina to use robotics technology for total replacement.
Our mission is to create high-value partnerships that provide exceptional surgical services to the local communities and provide a positive return on investment to each partner.
