2 Florida HOPCo practices to merge

Practice Management

The Institute for Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine will merge with Orthopedic Center of Florida starting April 1.

The move comes after IOSSM and Orthopedic Center of Florida, both in Fort Myers, joined Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company in September, HOPCo said in a Jan. 9 news release. Together the expanded practice has more than 28 providers across four locations in Lee and Collier counties.

"Joining forces as Orthopedic Center of Florida was the next logical step in the evolution of our practice," George Markovich, MD, of IOSSM, said in the release. "Both practices share a vision of transforming the delivery of musculoskeletal care in southwest Florida. Now that both practices have partnered with HOPCo, we can leverage their infrastructure and expertise to expand access to care and provide a broader range of subspecialties to patients throughout the region."

Under the merger, IOSSM will rebrand and operate as Orthopedic Center of Florida.
