Practice Management

Orthopedic Institute of Pennsylvania signed a deal with Penn State Health in Hershey, Pa., to provide orthopedic services at two of the system's hospitals.

The partners began discussing collaboration in early 2020 and announced the deal March 18. Orthopedic Institute of Pennsylvania, a Camp Hill-based independent practice, will oversee general orthopedic care and orthopedic trauma at Holy Spirit Medical Center and all orthopedic services at Hampden Medical Center, scheduled to open in the fall.

Penn State Health named Brett Himmelwright, DO, medical director of general orthopedic care at Holy Spirit, also based in Camp Hill.

Michael Fernandez, MD, will be medical director of spine surgery, and Matthew Kelly, MD, will be medical director of general orthopedics at Enola, Pa.-based Hampden Medical Center when the hospital opens.

Orthopedic Institute of Pennsylvania also has partnerships and affiliations with Pittsburgh-based UPMC, Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger and two ASCs.
