Here’s an excerpt:
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 its facilities.

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.
