Sharonville, Ohio-based Beacon Orthopaedics is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and its surgeons and founding members are reflecting on the practice's growth.

Beacon Orthopedics was a leader in outpatient orthopedic surgery, according to founding member Tim Kremchek, MD.

"We were way ahead of the curve," he said in an Oct. 29 news release. "Nobody in orthopaedics had their own surgery center. It was all being done at hospitals. We wanted to create a seamless experience, something different."

Since its founding in 1996, Beacon Orthopaedics has grown to 25 locations and three ASCs. More than 60 physicians work with the practice.

CEO Andy Blankemeyer said Beacon continues to innovate after 25 years with its joint venture with TriHealth. The partnership combines ambulatory assets and a co-management agreement.

"This is one of the first partnerships of its kind in the country, and an innovative approach with a national model for how independent physician groups can partner with health systems," he said in the release.
