What does it mean to be “physician owned” - and why should you care?
At Orthopedic ONE, we often emphasize the fact that we are the largest physician-owned orthopedic practice in Ohio. But what does that really mean? And why should it matter to you?
A private or independent practice is one in which the physicians provide the care and own the business. Orthopedic ONE physicians collectively share ownership of our practice and make both medical and business decisions that directly affect your quality of care, cost of care and overall patient experience.
What are the advantages of choosing an independent or physician-owned practice or provider such as Orthopedic ONE?
First and foremost, our number ONE priority is always you, the patient. As a physician-owned practice, we retain the ability to do what’s best for our patients by providing the highest quality of care and service while keeping costs low.
Other advantages include:
No referral needed. When you experience an orthopedic issue of any kind, you can see any of our physicians without a referral (unless mandated by your insurance provider). This can dramatically reduce the number of appointments required and help you reach a diagnosis sooner, putting you on the path toward recovery sooner. We work closely with your entire medical team, including your primary care physician to keep everyone informed. Every day counts when your life is on hold due to a painful injury or condition. Schedule an appointment today.
Choice. Our physicians are affiliated and work closely with a wide range of healthcare systems within the region, which means you have a choice when determining where your procedure takes place. Not to mention, many of our providers own or are affiliated with some of the leading outpatient surgery centers in the area. See the entire list here.
Top talent. Orthopedic ONE physicians strive to create an environment that attracts and retains top healthcare talent. Quality care starts with quality healthcare providers. In many cases, our physicians are directly involved in the hiring and training of our more than 600 associates. They understand that every employee will directly impact the lives of our patients – from imaging personnel to physician extenders. Explore career opportunities with us.
Cost Savings. Unlike a hospital system that is required to treat and care for injuries and conditions of all types, we are solely focused on orthopedic and musculoskeletal needs. This specialization produces efficiencies across the entire practice that ultimately create costs savings for the entire system, including you. See a list of major insurance plans accepted.
Designed with you in mind. Our specialized approach also allows us to design an environment that is perfectly suited to your unique orthopedic and musculoskeletal needs. With on-site fluoroscopy, EMG services, heated therapy pools, a unique joint therapy program and convenient MRI suites, we strive to offer the latest technology and advancements in a comfortable and convenient environment. As a physician-owned practice, we can respond to the latest research and quickly make decisions that improve your overall care and experience.
Last, but not least, we are invested in the communities we serve. Our physicians and associates live and work in the communities where we practice. We take great pride in caring for our friends and neighbors in the clinic and out in the community. Learn more about our community outreach efforts.
