(Cincinnati, Oh.) - OrthoCincy Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, the largest independent orthopaedic practice in the Tri-State, is welcoming the physicians and staff of Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine, a Cincinnati sports medicine staple for more than 50 years. The two organizations announced the partnership today, creating a Midwest powerhouse in the orthopaedic and sports medicine landscape.
The partnership will initially operate as OrthoCincy Wellington Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine at each Ohio location to maximize awareness for patients of both practices. Locations in Kentucky and Indiana will continue to operate as OrthoCincy Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine.
“We are excited to announce our partnership with Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine,” said JoAnn Reis, CEO of OrthoCincy. “It creates the largest orthopaedic practice in the Tri-State, and gives patients the greatest access to specialty orthopaedic care. More importantly, we remain an independent, physician-owned practice, which allows us to continue putting the best interests of our patients and staff first.”
Reis will expand her role as CEO with the OrthoCincy Wellington Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine partnership, and Dr. Matthew Hummel will continue as president. Dr. Robert Rhoad, current president and CEO of Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine, will join the OrthoCincy Board of Directors, and will continue his practice as a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon.
“I’m thrilled to see this partnership come to fruition,” noted Dr. Rhoad. “This collective resource of physicians and support staff means better and more complete care options for the people of Greater Cincinnati. We’ve worked for months to make this transition as smooth as possible, and I’m confident our patients will see great value in this newly formed partnership.”
Dr. Hummel added, “This partnership embodies our commitment to long-term growth throughout Greater Cincinnati. Our new partners from Wellington share our patient-first vision of superior orthopaedic care.”
All current Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine locations will remain open through January 31. A transition to new OrthoCincy Wellington Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine locations will begin February 1. Patients will be contacted with information about their doctor and future appointments. Access to all patient records will remain with OrthoCincy Wellington with no disruption of care.
