Philadelphia-based orthopedic practice Rothman Institute signed a strategic affiliation agreement with New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health.
"We look forward to joining the Northwell Health family," said Rothman Institute President Alexander R. Vaccaro, MD, PhD, and chairman of the department of orthopedics at Thomas Jefferson University and Hospitals in Philadelphia. "This agreement expands Rothman Institute's footprint into New York City and the surrounding suburbs."
Under the agreement, Northwell Health Orthopaedic Institute will work with Rothman to develop centers of excellence for orthopedics in the New York metropolitan area. The partners will also work on co-branding marketing initiatives, recruiting top-level physicians, joint research and tracking and measuring patient outcomes.
"We're excited about the affiliation with the Rothman Institute," said Chair of Orthopedics at Northwell Health Nicholas Sgaglione, MD. "The affiliation will bring together two nimble, forward-thinking organizations that emphasize high-quality care."
Rothman Institute includes 25 locations throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including two orthopedic urgent care centers.
