Collectively, their practitioners offer experience and competence in the following subspecialties: spine, sports medicine, joint replacement and reconstruction, hand and upper extremity, foot and ankle, podiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), orthopedic trauma and pain management. Additionally, they operate physical and occupational therapy centers with a dedicated team of therapists and support staff in several of the office locations. EmergeOrtho has fixed-site and mobile MRI imaging services and three AccessOrtho Urgent Care locations for walk-in service dedicated to the treatment of orthopedic injuries.
EmergeOrtho employs a full complement of about 450 clinical and administrative professionals who care for patients each day. The management team includes experts in human resources, marketing, accounting, information technology and clinical management. Together, they work day-in and day-out to provide compassionate, professional and friendly care and treatment for their patients.
The ever-evolving company culture of EmergeOrtho strives to create care that is as frictionless as possible for patients as well as providers and staff.
“Healthcare is serious, but we believe it’s important to enjoy our time together and encourage staff to have fun,” DeBiasi says. “We are always seeking to improve the care and patient experience.”
They maintain close partnerships with other healthcare providers in the community and through those relationships find and embrace change and innovation. “We encourage staff and providers to take a team approach to how they practice and work.”
At EmergeOrtho there is a foundational belief and long history of giving back to the communities they serve. “We provide funding and support to many area youth athletic programs to help keep our citizens healthy and fit,” DeBiasi states. “We also lend our support to a variety of local nonprofits and charities through volunteer time and financial support.”
