The CORE Institute Celebrates 10 Years of Life in Motion

The CORE Institute Feb. 9, 2015

Ten years ago, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon Dr. David J. Jacofsky, along with Dr. John A. Brown and Dr. Mark D. Campbell, believed they could provide best-in-class orthopedic care to Phoenix-area residents. Ten years later, it is clear that they have been able to bring that dream to fruition, with 150 care providers, 700 employees and almost half a million patients in the practice that delivers integrated, comprehensive musculoskeletal and neurological care and is built upon a foundation of pioneering research, academics, community service, and a passion for excellence in patient care.

In January, 2005, The CORE Institute was born, and over the next 10 years the practice grew from one small office in Sun City West, Arizona, into a nationally recognized, innovation-leading, orthopedic and neurological practice with 700 employees spanning two states and 26 facilities.

“Our phenomenal growth has been built on a platform of evidence-based medicine and meticulous outcomes tracking managed by our proprietary IT platform,” said Chairman and CEO David Jacofsky, M.D. “It’s very rewarding to see our innovative approach to patient care being embraced by hundreds of thousands of patients, from all 50 states and multiple countries. The one thing that has remained the same is our commitment to a proven, evidence-based, outcomes-driven, standardized patient care approach. I am proud of what we have accomplished. We’re truly honored that patients and the medical community have entrusted us to care for them at The CORE Institute over the last 10 years.”

The CORE Institute has expanded from its early years to offer care in Orthopedics, Spine, Pain Management, Neurology, Rheumatology, Plastic Surgery and Physical Therapy.  In addition to its innovative evidence-based medicine IT platform, the organization continues to be a leader in payor-reform initiatives and hospital alignment strategies.

Unique within the industry, The CORE Institute has agreements to co-manage the orthopedic departments at several major hospitals, including five Banner Health facilities in Arizona; Green Valley Hospital South of Tucson; and St. John Providence Hospitals in Southfield and Novi, Michigan. In 2013, The CORE Institute teamed up with the Cleveland Clinic, OrthoCarolina and The Rothman Institute to form the first-of-its-kind clinically integrated Orthopedic PHO (Physician Hospital Organization), operating as the National Orthopaedic & Spine Alliance LLC (NOSA).

Among its many recognitions, The CORE Institute was the 2014 recipient of the IMPACT Award by the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. Over the years, numerous physicians have also been recognized individually.

Of today’s 700 employees, many are celebrating their 10th year of employment at The CORE Institute. It is no surprise to see the continued expansion and growth of The CORE Institute because of their committed and dedicated team.

The CORE Institute is already looking toward the next 10 years, with clinics planned to open in other states as well as overseas in the near future. “We’re early in our journey as a company and I’m very excited about our future as we expand our efforts to give patients best-in-class care,” concluded Dr. Jacofsky.
