Uniondale-based Health Plus Management has formed a strategic partnership with Somers Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Group, which has locations in New York and Connecticut.
The alliance expands on Health Plus’ initiative to partner with orthopedic practices in what it calls “key Northeast markets.”
In these alliances, Health Plus provides the administrative-operations infrastructure, allowing musculoskeletal practices to free up from administrative tasks and focus further on best possible clinical outcomes for their patients.
“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Dr. Joel Buchalter and Dr. Douglas Fauser and the entire team at Somers Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Group,” Stuart Blumberg, CEO of Health Plus Management, said in a news release about the new alliance.
“This partnership marks a new milestone for us, as we extend our reach across the New York tri-state and introduce our first surgical center to our growing network of musculoskeletal service providers,” Blumberg added.
Health Plus Management, Blumberg said, “is proud to support the Somers team in all ways, allowing the clinical team autonomy to continue providing world-class patient care, while we bolster all administrative areas of the business, positioning them for long-term success and better quality of life. Combining each of our strengths, we’ll build on the already successful practice and provide an innovative experience for patients and team members while ensuring exceptional care.”
The partnership also provides the Somers practice the ability to incorporate additional resources, physicians at the orthopedic group said.
“By combining our strengths and leveraging HPM’s vast professional resources, we are confident in our ability to further optimize the entire patient experience,” Dr. Joel Buchalter, orthopedic surgery and total joint replacement specialist at Somers, said in the news release.
“By relieving our clinical teams from administrative burdens, improving our facilities and introducing enhanced technologies, we can continue to provide exceptional care and support to our patients with ease and convenience, while facilitating their recovery from musculoskeletal injuries with dedication and proficiency,” Buchalter added.
“Our team comprises highly dedicated physicians trained at prestigious institutions across the United States,” Dr. Douglas Fauser, sports medicine and total joint replacement specialist at Somers, said in the release.
“Through our partnership with HPM, we expand beyond conventional ownership while maintaining exceptional care,” Fauser added. “Together, we will elevate musculoskeletal care within our community, ensuring a successful future.”
Somers has locations in Carmel, Newburgh, Mount Kisco and Fishkill in New York, and in Danbury in Connecticut.
In March, Somers announced a partnership with Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute.
