EvergreenHealth recently opened its Neuroscience, Spine & Orthopedic Institute in Kirkland, Wash., according to K5 News.

Here are four insights:


1. The new hospital incorporates an integrated approach between neurosurgeons, spine surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, radiologist and physical therapy experts to benefit patient outcomes.


2. Physicians are incentivized to collaborate on a single case. For example, a spine surgeon will work with a neurologist to determine the best treatment plan.


3. The institute's goal is to eliminate the need for a patient to travel from physician to physician to receive care. Rather, the physicians can work together to deliver the patient care.


4. The Neuroscience, Spine & Orthopedic Institute's multi-disciplinary team is made up of nearly 25 physicians who meet regularly.
