Booth Bartolozzi Balderson Orthopaedics, which had been an independent practice at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia, will now move to Aria Health. Robert E. Booth Jr., MD, said economic pressures played a role in their decision to become employed and the surgeons hope to expand their "footprint" as a result of the move, according to the report.
Since the move, Aria created Aria 3B Orthopaedic Institute, which includes eight operating rooms and 30 private inpatient rooms.
