May 4, 2018, Colorado Springs, CO – Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group (CSOG) announces its Grand Opening of Southern Colorado’s first express care facility dedicated to treating bone, muscle and joint injuries. The clinic will start seeing patients on May 7 on the first floor of CSOG’s current practice at 4110 Briargate Parkway, Suite 145.
“Injuries are not planned, so we decided to invest in express care that requires orthopaedic specialists for a community that enjoys such an active lifestyle,” said Nicole Banning, chief operating officer of CSOG. “We’ve seen this model successfully serve other active communities and we believe our residents deserve fast, affordable care to get them back to what they enjoy doing faster.”
In an article published by Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc., the findings for these facilities documented a reduction in wait time compared to ERs by as much as 60 percent and a savings by as much as 95 percent. The article cited the advantage of continuity of care when patients are treated by the same physician at the time of an injury that will oversee their ongoing care.
“Our physicians are highly skilled in all types of injuries, including sprains, minor dislocations, torn ligaments or tendons in addition to breaks and joints,” said Ronald Hollis, MD of CSOG. “We have all the equipment necessary for stopping the hurting and starting the healing faster, such as X-ray, MRI, casting, a brace shop, physical therapy and a surgery center.”
“One of the reasons the care is expedited is that we specialize in orthopaedics, making it unnecessary for patients to wait behind strokes and heart attacks,” Banning said. “Additionally, our patients reduce the risk of contagious germs that they would encounter in other commercial urgent care outlets.”
The express care facility will have extended hours, which are Monday- Friday 9am – 7pm and Saturday 10am-2pm. No appointments are necessary for this walk-in care facility. A Grand Opening is being held on Monday, May 4 from 2pm to 5pm.
About CSOG: Since 1994, Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group (CSOG) has been a one-stop-shop for comprehensive orthopaedic care in Southern Colorado. As a large multispecialty group, CSOG has physicians who specialize in treating sports injuries, hand and arm injuries, foot and ankle problems, back and neck pain, hip and knee conditions, and arthritis. This allows CSOG physicians to refer to one another when they come across an injury that another doctor may have more experience treating. As a patient, this is much more convenient than having to go to another office and fill out more paperwork.
