This commitment exemplifies the priority of both organizations to create a world-class comprehensive orthopedic service line at Hoboken University Medical Center and Christ Hospital in Jersey City to serve the patients in Hudson County and beyond.
“A strength of Rothman Orthopedics that I am particularly proud of is our ability to recruit top talent,” Rothman Orthopedic Institute President Dr. Alexander Vaccaro said in a statement.
“We are very fortunate based on our reputation that the North Jersey expansion attracted an abundance of top trained orthopedic applicants. Hudson County is going to be thrilled with the new orthopedic physicians serving their community.”
Rothman Orthopedics and CarePoint are also in discussions to create a multi-specialty ambulatory venture to serve Hudson County. This program will encourage other specialties outside of orthopedics to join this high-quality care model.
“CarePoint Health, with its geographic location, density of population and changing demographics needs clinical leaders like Rothman Orthopedics as partners to enhance the services to this community,” added CarePoint President and CEO Dr. Achintya Moulick.
“The synergies of two institutions led by clinical leaders holds a lot of promise for growth and innovation and holds limitless possibilities for advancing orthopedic care.” He further added “CarePoint health with Rothman Orthopedics want to set up a world class Spine Center in Hudson County which can serve the people with complex spinal issues.”
Rothman Orthopedics anticipates a fall of 2022 commencement to begin caring for patients in Hudson County with an initial six surgeons and two non-operative physicians hired for Hudson County with expertise in joint replacement, spine, sports medicine, hand & wrist, foot & ankle, and shoulder & elbow.
