Compass Group Announces Launch of Interventional Pain Management Platform

Compass Group announced today a strategic partnership with Mays & Schnapp Neurospine and Pain (“Mays & Schnapp”), a Memphis-based interventional pain management practice serving patients in Tennessee and Mississippi.

Mays & Schnapp was founded more than 35 years ago on the philosophy that the best treatment comes from a multidisciplinary approach to relieve pain, restore function, and improve the quality of life. Today, the practice offers a full suite of innovative interventional pain management services while focusing on minimally invasive techniques.

“We are very excited to be partnering with Dr. Moacir Schnapp, Eric Schnapp, and the rest of the team,” said John Hubert, Vice President at Compass Group. “Mays & Schnapp has an exceptional reputation for providing innovative and high-quality care to patients, and we hope to further accelerate their growth and build a leading platform in the Mid-South region to address the rising population of those suffering with chronic pain.”

“We chose to partner with the Compass team because we share a mutual vision in building upon our foundation and philosophy as a leader in interventional pain management and establishing a platform to bring improved patient quality of life to everyone we can,” said Eric Schnapp, CEO of Mays & Schnapp. “Compass has demonstrated success in helping to grow physician practices, and we look forward to the journey ahead.”

The investment leverages Compass Group’s prior experience in building out an integrated network of specialty physician practice platforms, providing physicians with an attractive partnership by reducing administrative burden, enhancing supplier purchasing leverage, and providing capital to invest in new equipment and ancillary services. The platform is seeking add-on interventional pain management physicians and practices that are committed to providing best-in-class care to patients.

“We are excited to get to work right away with Mays & Schnapp leadership to build out their management team, provide acquisition support, invest in ancillary services, and bring their patient-centric approach to a broader population,” said Maureen Horgan, Senior Associate at Compass Group.
