Introduction to the Connecticut Orthopaedic Institute at MidState (long version)
The Connecticut Orthopaedic Institute at MidState is effectively, Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists’ hospital. Our partnership with Hartford HealthCare System is allowing us to bring the expertise that Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists has with the facilities that Hartford Health System has brought to us. So, I think this represents a unique opportunity for our group, Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists, to really have some place that we can call home. That we can, basically, control and provide an environment that patients will be comfortable in and we can take excellent care of the patients. We have a good feel for what our patients are looking for. And by virtue of that combination, we think we’re able to construct ah, an experience that is going to be, hopefully, world-class. What we’ve been able to do is create the best of both worlds. We have a world-class, brand-new hospital facility at our disposal. That we’ll manage. We will take care of every single aspect of it. And then our physicians will be able to provide the high level of care that they’ve been trained to give. But, now they control the environment – they control every aspect of this continuum of care. Patients that have gone and had this ah – the first cases that we’ve been performing up there, have been extremely happy with that experience.
