GREELEY, CO — The Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies (OCR) is opening a new office in Greeley to more conveniently serve residents of Greeley and nearby communities in northeastern Colorado.
The office opens for patient appointments Monday, May 16, after completion of construction work and installation of new medical equipment. For appointments, call 970-493-0112.
Services at OCR’s new location include specialty physician appointments, digital x-ray, and cast-splint-brace services.
“We’re very pleased to become part of the community and bring our orthopaedic services closer to our patients in Greeley and northeastern Colorado,” said Dr. Robert Benz, president of OCR’s board of directors.
In recent years, residents of Greeley, Weld County, and elsewhere in the region have increasingly traveled to see physicians at OCR’s offices in Fort Collins and Loveland for specialized orthopaedic care.
“Our office in Greeley will help us keep up with increasing patient volume and demand for orthopaedics,” said Mike Bergerson, OCR’s chief executive officer.
“Our doctors and staff are looking forward to being a part of the Greeley business and healthcare community,” Bergerson said.
OCR’s physicians have specialized fellowship training, board certification, and years of experience in each area of orthopaedics, spine, sports medicine, sports concussion, and podiatry care. Patients with a knee injury, for example, can readily have appointments with OCR physicians whose practice focus is knee injuries.
OCR’s office in Greeley is leased from University of Colorado Health. UC Health’s Greeley Medical Clinic has its offices on the 1st, 2nd, and 4th floors of the building.
OCR previously expanded and remodeled its Fort Collins facility (2012-2014) and built a larger office in Loveland (2008-2009). The Fort Collins facility includes an MRI scanner, surgery center, and overnight-stay recovery center. OCR owns the Fort Collins facility in partnership with UC Health.
The practice has 29 doctors – 20 orthopaedic surgeons, two podiatrists, five primary care sports medicine specialists, a physiatrist, and a neuropsychologist whose specialty is sports concussions.
The doctors work with a staff of 300 employees, including 14 physician assistants and nurse practitioners, 16 athletic trainers, and physical and occupational therapists.
The Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies provides patients with specialized orthopaedic, spine, sports medicine, sports concussion, and podiatry care. The practice, founded in 1969, has offices in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Greeley, CO. OCR’s services include a surgery center, radiology, therapy, and orthopaedic worker’s comp services.
