Every family has had an orthopedic injury requiring immediate attention. Additionally, all families have experienced the urgency of the moment with the frustration of the time and cost of going to an emergency room. This was the impetus for the formation of the Sport-Ortho Urgent Care centers.
These urgent cares treat only musculoskeletal, orthopedic and sports injuries utilizing orthopedic specialists. The correct diagnosis can be made on the first visit with proper splinting and treatment recommendations. Services are provided at a fraction of the cost of an ER visit with additional savings in time avoiding lost work and school days.
Since deductibles have risen to an average in excess of $5,000 per family, the American College of Emergency Physicians has shown that 70% of families have skipped or delayed treatment because of these costs. When the initial opportunity to treat an injury is lost, often additional procedures and much greater expense is suffered. The ultimate savings of these direct and indirect costs can save families significant financial hardship.
