OrthoNebraska, an Omaha-area orthopedic practice and hospital, will open a clinic this summer inside the Think Whole Person Healthcare primary care office at 7100 West Center Road.
OrthoNebraska Aksarben, as the clinic will be known, will include eight exam rooms, a procedure room and X-ray capabilities. It will be staffed by a variety of orthopedic specialists and serve as OrthoNebraska’s third orthopedic urgent care for walk-in patients.
Levi Scheppers, OrthoNebraska’s CEO, said that having a location in the midtown area is important to the practice and that Think is a good fit.
The new location also expands the services available to patients at Think, one of the nation’s largest independent primary care centers with more than 45,000 patients. Think also is an accountable care organization geared toward patients with chronic conditions who need ongoing care coordination to help them meet their goals and stay out of the hospital.
“This is about access to health care when patients need it,” Dr. James Canedy, Think’s CEO, said in a statement. “We provide same-day access to our patients to help them stay on top of pain and get the help they need when they need it.”
