Committed to using leading-edge technologies to deliver top-tier orthopedic care experiences since 1972, Northern Arizona Orthopaedics (NAO) has always implemented strategies necessary to meet emerging healthcare developments. Launching continuous, new innovations to deliver state-of-the-art care to its community requires the amalgamation of multiple resources.

NAO is excited to announce on June 13, 2018, it formed a partnership with a similar orthopaedic leader having the same commitment to innovation and high-quality, low-cost healthcare. Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company (HOPCo), the largest orthopaedic outcomes company in the southwest, is the management company for several orthopedic enterprises. One of these is The CORE Institute, a noted orthopaedic leader in the Phoenix metropolitan area, with a national scope of orthopaedic leadership, especially in the area of value-based care and payor reform strategies.

“We have been impressed with HOPCo’s interest in, and capacity for, clinical innovation,” says Tim Bonatus, DO, Chair of the Board of Directors and Company President, “More importantly, HOPCo has been impressed with NAO’s brand and corporate culture, the quality of care provided, and the history of our leadership in the community.”

This new era of collaboration between Northern Arizona Orthopaedics and Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company will translate to more value for patients in our region in the form of quality care, system-wide efficiencies, standardized processes and cost savings. NAO will continue to prioritize the patient experience above all else and continue to deliver orthopaedic and spine care to communities throughout Arizona, including Prescott Valley, Sedona, Page, and the White Mountains.
