The Institute for Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine in Fort Myers, Fla. is partnering with Orthopedic Center of Florida.
The partnership will form one of the largest integrated groups in the region, according to a Sept. 14 news release from Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company. Fort Myers-based Orthopedic Center of Florida joined HOPCo in 2022 and has added five physicians and a new office in Naples, Fla.
IOSSM and Orthopedic Center of Florida together will have four locations and 28 physicians. They will be supported with HOPCo's management services and analytics tools.
"Our partnership with Orthopedic Center of Florida and HOPCo will allow us to provide more comprehensive care for our patients across the entire musculoskeletal spectrum," David Heligman, MD, founding partner of IOSSM, said in the release. "We see this partnership as an opportunity to not only grow our clinical capabilities but to do so with HOPCo, an organization that has proven its ability to drive growth and success on a national level."
