We are pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2018, Bone and Joint Surgeons, Inc. has partnered with Neurological Associates, Inc. to form West Virginia OrthoNeuro. The combined practice will offer comprehensive surgical services in Orthopedics, Neurosurgery and Spine, Foot & Ankle and Physical Therapy Services.
This is an exciting transition for both specialty groups who have longstanding reputations for quality surgical care in the community and Southern West Virginia. Our greatest strength has always been our experienced healthcare professionals and by joining the practices we will only improve that strength and the infrastructure needed to support our qualified providers in a changing healthcare environment.
By forming West Virginia OrthoNeuro, we will be working to improve the services and communication tools we offer our patients by moving to a single electronic medical record system, website and patient portal. We appreciate your patience as we work diligently to update our computer systems in the coming weeks.
We have also been working to inform various health insurance plans about the changes in our company. Patients may experience delays in authorizations and approvals for services as health plans update their records to associate our providers with the new company. Our participation status with some health insurance plans may also change as of January 1, 2018.
Although we will now operate as one company, West Virginia OrthoNeuro, you can expect the same personal relationships that you have experienced in the past. You will still be cared for by the same quality healthcare professionals, at the same locations, and with the same quality of service.
Please join us as we look forward to this new chapter in our mission of improving access to quality healthcare and providing continued access to specialty care for West Virginia patients and their families.
