Physician Board Promotes Successor from Within

COLUMBUS, OHIO (MAY 2, 2022) – Today, Tim Smith, chief executive officer of Ohio’s largest physician-owned orthopedic practice, announced his plan to retire at the close of 2022. His successor will be the practice’s Chief Operating Officer Mark D’Aloisio, who joined the group in 2020. The two will work closely together over the next several months to ensure a smooth transition before D’Aloisio officially steps into the role on January 1, 2023.

Smith has led the organization since its inception in 2013, the result of a merger between the The Cardinal Orthopaedic Institute and the Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence. Before the merger, Smith served as CEO of the latter since 2006. In his more than 16 years at the helm of Ohio’s largest private orthopedic practice, he has served to strengthen the groups position to remain independent, shepherded facility and service-line expansions across the region, navigated the uncertainties of a pandemic, and unified the group’s mission around a singular philosophy: Patients First. 

“The Orthopedic ONE brand and family is in great health, and I can think of no better time to transition its care to the next CEO,” says Smith. “With Mark at the helm, this incredible group of physicians and staff will continue to do what they do best for years to come – help our patients get better.”

The physician board took little time in naming D’Aloisio as Smith’s successor. “His energy, leadership and contributions in less than two years as COO have been obvious,” says Joel Politi, M.D., managing partner, Orthopedic ONE.  “As a physician-owned practice, we have the opportunity to prioritize patient care above all else. Tim’s leadership reflected this philosophy, and we are confident Mark will further efforts around this central mission.”

Mark D'Aloisio will assume the role of CEO with Orthopedic ONE in 2023 following Smith's retirement.

Before joining Orthopedic ONE, he served as vice president of operations at Mount Carmel East, the flagship hospital of central Ohio’s Mount Carmel Health System. While there, he guided the hospital’s strategic transformation initiative and led its $310 million expansion and modernization project. 

D’Aloisio holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in physical therapy from Wayne State University in Michigan and was a practicing therapist until 2011. He went on to complete his master’s of business administration at Arizona State University and later a post-graduate administrative residency and fellowship with Trinity Health. 

Since joining Orthopedic ONE, he has been closely involved in the planning of the group’s new $24 million, 80,000 square-foot corporate headquarters in Westerville, slated to open in Spring 2023. 

The practice will immediately begin its search for a chief operating officer to replace D’Aloisio.
