A fundamental element that sets Ortho Florida apart is its ownership structure. It’s a model where the members are the only owners; there is no corporate ownership, and no other shareholders than the doctors themselves. This unique ownership structure not only ensures that the medical providers have a say in how the group is run but also aligns the organization’s objectives with the interests of its members.
Ortho Florida is recognized as a physician-owned practice under federal government regulations, and this distinction brings several benefits. Physician-owned practices enjoy various in-office procedure exceptions and flexibility that corporate-owned entities may not have access to. This recognition allows members to continue providing high-quality orthopedic care without the constraints that can come with corporate ownership.
