NOVI, MI (August 18, 2014) - The CORE Institute and Providence Hospitals in Southfield and Novi have signed an agreement for a co-management partnership that will bring a higher level of orthopedic care to metro Detroit.  This new collaboration will set a new standard for orthopedic care based on clinical metrics, standardized protocols, and pioneering research and expertise. 

The CORE Institute’s Michigan providers have been caring for the community since 1959 and have achieved their mission of bringing a new standard of excellence to surgical care in Michigan. That means, higher patient satisfaction, greater standardization using evidence-based best practices, better clinical quality, and more efficient performance will now contribute to the success of The CORE Institute.

“We’re building upon our reputation for superior clinical care by creating a more comprehensive program capable of managing even the most complex orthopedic cases,” said David Markel, MD, Providence Orthopedic Surgeon and Michigan Market President of The CORE Institute. “At  Providence and Providence Park Hospitals, our new model will ensure patients in the community are receiving the highest quality of coordinated care from admission through surgery, to discharge and outpatient rehabilitation.”  

“Our relationship with The CORE Institute is a partnership that will reinforce our hospitals as leaders in orthopedics,” said Michael Wiemann, MD, President, Providence Hospital. “Together we’ll provide cutting-edge care via an integrative model based on a high level of collaboration. As such, we will continue to attract leading orthopedic specialists and patients who want the highest quality care and outcomes.”  

DeLyle Manwaring, Senior Vice President of Hospital Service Line Integration for The CORE Institute, highlights improved quality of care, better outcomes and enhanced patient experience as key benefits of the co-management model. According to Manwaring, bringing orthopedic physicians and hospital leaders together in an integrated management program with a shared objective of improving patient care and outcomes is rare across the United States; however, vital in order to improve quality while lowering costs.
