More than 100 physicians from seven established orthopaedic medical practices on April 7 announced they joined forces to form Orthopaedics New Jersey LLC dba Ortho Alliance NJ, now the largest orthopaedic group practice in the state.
Ortho Alliance NJ will have more than 25 office locations statewide. The seven practices that will now operate as divisions of Ortho Alliance NJ are: Brielle Orthopedics, Orthopedic Institute of Central Jersey, Princeton Orthopaedic Associates, Ridgewood Orthopedic Group, Shore Orthopaedic University Associates, Union County Orthopaedic Group and University Orthopaedic Associates.
“As part of the largest orthopaedic group in the state, Ortho Alliance NJ’s physicians and staff will provide the same personalized, high-quality care that patients had come to expect from these established practices, but now with greater resources at our disposal,” said Ortho Alliance NJ President Dr. Stephen Zabinski. “For example, Ortho Alliance NJ’s world-class physicians are board-certified, board-qualified or fellowship-trained — some are even double-fellowship-trained. Patients will now have access to the top physicians in every orthopaedic subspecialty in New Jersey under the Ortho Alliance NJ umbrella.”
“All of us at Ortho Alliance NJ are keenly focused on providing the highest standard of orthopaedic care and improving the overall patient experience. What makes us different from other large group practices is that we meaningfully embrace the local community model and are committed to providing personalized patient care,” said Ortho Alliance NJ Chairman Dr. Jeffrey Bechler. “These values are important to our group practice culture, as well as our clinical approach to practicing orthopaedic medicine.”
The physicians and providers of Ortho Alliance NJ will maintain their existing office location(s) and contact information. “This means patients will enjoy the same comfortable relationships with their very own physician and office staff at the same location they have always visited,” noted Ortho Alliance NJ Executive Director Jeanmarie Falco.
As part of Ortho Alliance NJ, the participating physicians will be able to share best practices for treating patients, as well as their research, knowledge and expertise with the other physician members.
