In the mid 1990’s ‚ the company, Surgical Partners Ltd. was created by Dr. Diggiss as a result of the need to separate the activities of The Surgical Suite #68 Collins Avenue‚ from Surgical Associates Ltd. Surgical Partners Ltd. was formed in 1996 d.b.a. The Surgical Suite.
The original group of surgeons at The Surgical Suite included Dr. Charles Diggiss‚ General and Laparoscopic Surgeon‚ Dr. Locksley Munroe, whom he met in medical school in 1975/6. Together‚ they remained the mainstay of this practice until 2005. The late‚ Dr. David Serson‚ Brazilian Plastic Surgeon who was also a part of the original team‚ along with Dr. James Lee‚ U.S.-based Orthopedic Surgeon and most recently‚ Dr. Theodore Ferguson, have been surgeons whose practices were accommodated at The Surgical Suite over the years.
Today, The Surgical Suite is managed by Nurse Charlene Mcphee (Mrs.), a longtime RN of the practice. A ‘woman of faith’, Nurse Mcphee has extended herself tremendously in this practice, from living in Spanish Wells in the early 90’s and managing the practice located there, to rising to Executive Directorship of the organization, ‘Sister, Sister’ (co-founded by Dr. Diggiss and Dr. Munroe), Nurse McPhee has always applied her best talent: compassion.
