Two Arizona physician groups have agreed to a business agreement creating one of the most expansive specialty organizations in the state.
Effective Oct. 1, CORE Institute, which bills itself as the largest orthopedic group in Arizona, will employ all providers and employees of the Arizona Neurological Institute, effectively creating a neurological division, said Dr. David Jacofsky, CEO of the CORE Institute. As a result, CORE will have about 80 physicians and 120 other clinicians providing musculoskeletal, neurological and rehabilitation care.
“This will better position us for the economics of healthcare going forward,” Jacofsky said. “And most importantly, it will allow us to become one of the only organizations in the country to provide an ortho-neuro-rehab continuum.”
