Orthopedic Care Partners, a support organization for orthopedic practices comprised of The Orthopaedic Institute, is expanding its services in Florida with an additional medical building and an investment in an ASC facility.

The ASC facility is being developed as a partnership between ValueHealth, TOI and The Villages Health. The facility will initially offer service lines for gastroenterology, orthopedics and urology.

Varsity Healthcare Partners, a private equity investment firm with expertise in growing care platforms, backs OCP.

Rich Gilbert, M.D., CEO of OCP, stated, “This expansion represents an exciting, organic growth initiative that expands TOI’s local market offerings to The Villages, one of the fastest-growing retirement communities in the United States and surrounding communities. We also look forward to partnering with ValueHealth, a pioneer and leader in the ambulatory surgical space.”
