DENVER – August 31, 2017 – Fifty-six of Colorado’s top orthopedic physicians, across seven practices, have united under a common vision of improving outcomes, efficiency, cost, and quality to form Orthopedic Centers of Colorado, LLC (OCC). With 19 offices across the Denver metro area, the combined practice is the largest provider of orthopedic and musculoskeletal care in the state.
The seven practices coming together as Orthopedic Centers of Colorado, LLC are:
- Advanced Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Specialists P.C.
- Colorado Orthopedic Consultants, P.C.
- Denver Spine Surgeons, LLC
- Denver-Vail Orthopedics, P.C.
- Hand Surgery Associates, P.C.
- Orthopedic Associates, LLC
- Peak Orthopedics & Spine, PLLC
In a market where just 33 percent of physicians work in independent practice, down from 48 percent in 2012, this formation represents a physician-driven commitment to the private practice model of medicine.
“The private-practice model has proven to deliver a higher level of quality at a more competitive price,” said Davis Hurley, MD, president of Orthopedic Centers of Colorado. “Patients will continue to benefit from the more personalized approach that private practice delivers to accommodate each patient’s needs.”
As a physician-driven organization, OCC will remain nimble enough to adapt to the ever-changing healthcare landscape, and emerge as pioneers in improved patient outcomes and reduced costs, while maintaining strong personal relationships with the patients from the communities we serve.
The seven practices will begin operating as Orthopedic Centers of Colorado on September 1, 2017. Patients of the practices will see no interruption in their care and services and will begin to see the OCC name on patient communications.
