Integrated and Co-Managed Care Sets Us Apart

One of the great strengths of ProMedica is its scope of services and the ability to integrate that care on the patient’s behalf. That approach is at the center of the ProMedica Orthopaedic Institute, which offers not only wellness and fitness services and other forms of preventative wellness but also surgical services, rehabilitation and support groups.

An indication of this commitment is the independent recognition our efforts have achieved. For example, the ProMedica Wildwood Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital has received the Aetna Institutes of Quality® (IOQ) designation for spine surgery. According to Aetna, “Designated IOQ facilities demonstrate excellence in care, a commitment to continuous improvement and represent an exceptional value to our members.” The goal of the IOQ program is to help its insurance customers choose facilities that consistently provide high-quality and superior-value patient care.

In addition, ProMedica Orthopaedic Institute uses strategies that foster collaboration, increase efficiency and, most importantly, improve the quality of orthopaedic care for our community. One of these strategies is the physician co-management team serving hospitals in the metro Toledo area. Some of the region’s leading orthopaedic and spine surgeons have partnered to share responsibility for orthopaedic services at ProMedica Bay Park Hospital, ProMedica Flower Hospital, ProMedica Toledo Hospital, ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital and Wildwood Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital. Collectively, these surgeons are accountable for the development of the full spectrum of patient care, from preventative measures to post-operative therapy.

The co-management team works with (“co-manages”) the hospitals to establish best practices for care and to ensure all care providers, from nurses to physical therapists, are working together. For the patient, this means higher-quality orthopaedic care and a better experience.

Patient Stories

We all have a story about what we live to do, but for some, joint pain can make those activities nearly impossible. Tasks that used to be simple, such as running the vacuum, getting in and out of the car or even sleeping at night, can become unbearable. If you’re experiencing these same issues, you’re not alone..
