Jackson Surgical Assistants Expands Its National Presence by Merging with Two Atlanta Area Practices

Jackson Surgical Assistants (JSA) has expanded its national presence in the practice management solutions arena with the addition of two respected Atlanta-area surgical assistant practices: Omni Surgical and Midtown Surgical Associates.

Alpharetta, GA (Vocus) May 28, 2010 -- Jackson Surgical Assistants (JSA) has expanded its national presence in the practice management solutions arena with the addition of two respected Atlanta-area surgical assistant practices: Omni Surgical and Midtown Surgical Associates.

This combination will further enhance JSA’s ability to provide trained, thoroughly-credentialed surgical assistants to hospitals, which - given the recent changes in healthcare legislation - are increasingly focused on ways to save costs without compromising quality of care.

“Our mission is to provide hospitals, surgeons and surgical assistants with a rigorously developed surgical assisting solution that contributes to better surgical outcomes while reducing costs,” said Paul Foster, President of JSA. “Partnering with these two well-respected surgical assistant practices will allow us to provide a higher quality of service.”

Surgical assistants are required on approximately one-third of all surgeries. These highly-skilled individuals provide services essential for the wellbeing of patients and the success of surgical teams. JSA’s program improves operating room productivity by implementing best practices for surgical assisting, especially as it relates to the scheduling process and contributing to room turnover times.

“Joining the Jackson Surgical Assistant team will really enhance our ability to provide services to Atlanta’s operating rooms,” said Mike Mitchell, CSA/CFA, President of Omni Surgical. “The merger also benefits our employees, offering an increased level of stability while providing more opportunities in terms of the number and type of surgeries.”

Duane Prickett, SA-C, CPC, President and CEO of Midtown Surgical Associates added, “This opportunity allows the employees of Midtown Surgical to focus on our surgical expertise while leveraging Jackson Surgical Assistants’ administrative capabilities. By becoming a part of Jackson Surgical Assistants, we are able to spend our time doing what we do best: helping surgeons provide the highest quality of care to our patients.”

Combining with Omni Surgical and Midtown Surgical Associates makes JSA the largest provider of surgical assistant services in the Atlanta area, providing services for 20 metro area hospitals and surgical centers.
