New Facility to Offer Outpatient Ortho, Spine & ENT Procedures
Greenville, SC // December 8, 2022 – Compass Surgical Partners (Compass), Bon Secours, and local physicians broke ground on the Millennium Surgery Center this week. The new facility will offer orthopaedic, spine, and ENT procedures, along with robotic outpatient joint procedures. Historically, 100% of these surgeries have been performed in the hospital.
"This all started with us thinking how to do things better and differently, and thanks to the partnership with Compass Surgical Partners, we’ve created an opportunity for more efficient, cost-effective care in Greenville. As a physician, I’m very excited for the patient access this will bring and proud that we’ll soon have the ability to serve our community even better," said Dr. Michael Sims, an orthopaedic surgeon with Bon Secours Piedmont Orthopaedics.
The new ambulatory surgery center will have 6 operating rooms and 2 procedure rooms. The 20,000 square feet facility will be located on the Bon Secours St. Francis Millennium campus located off Innovation Drive in Greenville. Greenville-based Southern First provided financing for the project.
Set to open in 2024, the new Millennium Surgery Center will offer high-quality procedures at a reduced cost to the patients, commercial payers, and employers in the greater Greenville community.
"Millennium will be the first ASC to offer outpatient, robotic joint replacements in the Upstate region of South Carolina," said Scott Bacon, Compass VP of Business Development. "That means cutting edge care, at lower costs, for patients in Greenville and the surrounding areas."
The Millennium Surgery Center 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.
