WHAT IT DOES: Compass Health assists hospitals, healthcare organizations and physicians in maximizing their resources by developing cost-effective systems of quality care in behavioral health and rehabilitative medicine. HOW IT GREW: In the past three years, Compass has grown 89% by working closely in partnership with community hospitals throughout Louisiana. In addition to its hospital partnerships, the company owns and operates psychiatric hospitals and a large outpatient facility as part of its psychiatric health system.
According to the company’s website, Compass’ growth “can be directly attributed to a history of collaboration and support of its employees in the healthcare facilities” the company serves. Compass says it has a proven track record of turning around underperforming organizations and service lines and takes a customer service approach to all endeavors.
“It takes dedication, strong strategic planning and a will to succeed (to create) clinically and financially sound systems of care,” the website reads.
