Tahoe Fracture and Spine Nevada Merge to Create the Largest Musculoskeletal Care Platform in the State of Nevada
CARSON CITY, Nev., July 7, 2021 — Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, the premier orthopedic and spine practice in Carson City, has announced that it is merging with Spine Nevada, the premier spine, vein and neurosurgery practice in Reno, to create the largest integrated musculoskeletal care platform in Nevada. The integrated practice will have more than 60 care providers and will bring the most comprehensive offering of musculoskeletal, neurological and vein care to Reno, Carson City, Lake Tahoe and the surrounding markets. The newly merged practice will continue to operate under its existing, well-known brands, which include Tahoe Fracture, Spine Nevada, Swift Urgent Clinic and Vein Nevada.
Through the merger, Tahoe Fracture will join Spine Nevada under HOPCo’s (Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company) Nevada care network and will have access to all of HOPCo’s proprietary tools and analytics proven to improve practice efficiencies and clinical quality outcomes for patients. The addition of Tahoe Fracture expands HOPCo’s care network into the Carson City and Lake Tahoe markets. Through this unique partnership, HOPCo furthers its mission to partner with musculoskeletal practices, health systems and payors to integrate all components of musculoskeletal care in order to develop value-based care programs that improve clinical quality while reducing the cost of care for patients and the health care community.
Tahoe Fracture was established in 1966 and is comprised of orthopedic and spine providers with locations in Reno, Carson City, Gardnerville, Hawthorne, South Lake Tahoe and Yerington, Nevada. The practice and its physicians have built a reputation in the community for compassionate and state-of-the-art care.
“For many years, musculoskeletal care in Nevada has not been strategically aligned,” said Chris Greenman, CEO of Tahoe Fracture. “We are proud to join this platform as we feel strongly about the need for physician organizations and key stakeholders to work together to deliver high-quality patient care and to solve challenges in healthcare.”
“Our partnership with Spine Nevada and HOPCo will accelerate our practice growth and will provide us with additional tools, expertise and infrastructure to constantly improve patient outcomes and to play a lead role in delivering value-based care,” added Dr. Jeffery Cummings, a physician and shareholder of Tahoe Fracture.
As part of HOPCo’s growing national network, HOPCo’s Nevada platform launched in March 2021 and provides its practice partners with a unique platform to improve operational efficiencies, develop hospital partnerships and work with payors to develop value-based care programs (bundled payments, shared savings and population health). The merged practices will be enabled by HOPCo’s Medical Economics team and proprietary software analytics that have been proven to provide its physician and health system partners with visibility into how care modalities affect outcomes and the overall cost of patient care.
“The addition of Tahoe Fracture to HOPCo’s platform in Nevada is a big step forward in creating a high-performing clinically integrated network in the Reno, Carson City and Lake Tahoe markets,” said Dr. Wael Barsoum, Chairman of the HOPCo Nevada Board of Directors. “Tahoe Fracture’s commitment to exceptional outcomes and patient-first model makes them an ideal partner to continue to transform the musculoskeletal care market in Nevada.”
Over the last decade, HOPCo has successfully implemented value-based care programs for musculoskeletal practices and health systems across the country and has emerged as a leader in aligning physicians, health systems and payors to drive higher quality care and reduce costs.
