Compass Partners with Local Surgeons in Specialized Joint and Spine Center

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.

“COJSI is the first of its class in the area—a specialized center for outpatient joints and spine procedures. From the start, this group of physicians had incomparable energy for this project, which is essential to a successful partnership. Compass is thrilled to partner with these high-quality, committed surgeons,” said Scott Bacon, Compass' VP of Business Development.

COJSI will be accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), the standards of which demonstrate a commitment to quality and a deep concern for patients. Compass is honored to be a part of COJSI and to be partnered with such a dedicated group of providers.
