Hoag Orthopedic Institute’s Leadership Team (Irvine, Calif.).
Carlos Prietto, MD, CEO; Dereesa Reid, COO; Robert Gorab, MD, CMO; Alan
Beyer, MD, executive medical director and James Cailouette, MD, surgeon
in chief are the leaders behind Hoag Orthopedic Institute. Commonly referred
to as the “gang of five,” these leaders have driven this physician-owned
and -operated facility to success. Hoag Orthopedic Institute is in the
top 5 percent of hospitals for the volume of orthopedic cases in the United
States, and the hospital has only been open for three years.
Hoag Orthopedic Institute is one of the only specialty hospitals in the
United States caring exclusively for orthopedic patients. The organization
includes a 70-bed hospital, two ambulatory surgery centers, more than
80 board-certified orthopedic surgeons and more than 300 physicians on
the medical staff. It is the largest orthopedic facility on the West coast,
and physicians have performed more than 16,000 orthopedic cases throughout
Hoag Orthopedic Institute also includes nurse navigators, which guide patients
from the moment they make a decision to pursue surgery to their physical
therapy and ongoing rehabilitative care. In its short history, Hoag Orthopedic
Institute has also demonstrated consistent drive in its pursuit of high-quality
and cost-efficient care. Last March, Hoag Orthopedic Institute announced
its participation in a bundled payment model for knee replacement surgeries
with McKesson and Aetna.
In 2011, Hoag Orthopedic Institute’s hospital was selected as one
of the first three hospitals to participate in a patient registry database
that tracks long-term patient outcomes by the California Joint Replacement
Registry. Becker’s Hospital Review named Hoag Orthopedic Institute
and its affiliate, Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach,
Calif., to its list of “101 Hospitals With Great Orthopedic Programs” in 2012.
