Kelli McMahan serves as Vice President of Facility Development for Compass Surgical Partners. Once a partnership is formed, Kelli takes over to ensure the facility opens in a timely manner and within the agreed-upon budget.
Kelli works alongside architects, construction, and key representatives on the finance team to develop sites for new partnerships. She delivers high-quality centers and believes the ASC’s success is tied to a close connection with general contractors and other constituents—both inside and outside of construction—and more importantly, close interaction with partners. She believes in a thorough, pre-development audit of the construction budgets and strategic plans. With proper planning, the development team can anticipate and mitigate future roadblocks.
Kelli began as a surgical technician in various operating rooms (ORs) and eventually attended nursing school. She later developed and managed an orthopedic center in Fort Wayne, Indiana, while working at another surgery center firm. To this day, no center that Kelli has assisted in opening has ever failed regarding the physical function of the facility. Kelli prides herself on delivering on promises to her partners.
Kelli is a registered nurse and is proud to hold an Associate Degree in Science and Nursing from Purdue University in Indiana. She loves to sew many types of clothing and has an interest in ceramics. Her three favorite football teams are Notre Dame, Green Bay, and the Kansas City Chiefs. Kelli has two children and four grandchildren as well.
