Beth Israel to open new medical center in Middleboro at old Compass

MIDDLEBORO — Beth Israel Deaconess Plymouth is set to open a new multi-specialty medical care facility in Middleboro this March — in the same location where Compass Medical abruptly closed last May, Beth Israel announced in a written statement.

The new facility, which will be located at 8 Commerce Blvd., will open for primary care services on March 1, with urgent care and several specialty services set to open later in the year.

“We are pleased to welcome Beth Israel Lahey Health to Middleboro,” Town Manager James McGrail said in the written statement.

“Many people in Middleboro and nearby communities were affected by the Compass Medical closure and we are grateful that a healthcare practice will provide a new and important resource for residents,” he said.

Same location as former Compass Medical

Beth Israel Deaconess Plymouth’s new Middleboro facility will open at the location previously operated by Compass Medical.

“BID Plymouth is committed to expanding access to our model of delivering compassionate care in the community, and this is an exciting opportunity to serve Middleboro and the surrounding towns,” said Kevin Coughlin, President of Beth Israel Deaconess Plymouth (BID Plymouth).

“We look forward to opening our doors to serve patients later this spring.”

When did Compass Medical close?

Compass Medical — a Quincy-based chain of medical clinics and urgent care facilities with locations in Easton, East Bridgewater, Taunton, Quincy, Braintree and Middleboro — abruptly closed all six offices last May, discontinuing services for more than 70,000 patients.

The closures came after Compass Medical was ordered to pay more than $16 million in damages to Steward Health Care System for fraud after a partnership between the two companies turned ugly, the Patriot Ledger reported.

Compass Medical had initially sued Steward for more than $80 million in damages, claiming that Steward had breached a services agreement by failing to pay bonuses to its doctors and rent for equipment and office space.

However, a Suffolk County jury rejected all of Compass Medical’s claims, finding instead that it had committed fraud against Steward and awarding the Dallas-based company the damages it sought.

East Bridgewater Compass also

Back in October, Signature Healthcare announced it was opening a new multi-specialty medical facility in the old Compass building on Route 18 in East Bridgewater.
