Jul 26, 2021Andrews Sports Medicine & Flagler Health+ Team Up
Flagler Health+ and Andrews Sports Medicine, LLC announced today that the organizations have entered into an affiliation agreement that provides an exclusive structure to bring internationally-acclaimed Andrews Sports Medicine to Northeast Florida. One of the first initiatives planned as part of the collaboration is the development of an orthopedics-focused surgery center to be located on the Flagler Health+ campus at Durbin Park.
Future opportunities identified in the master affiliation agreement include orthopedic research and education, sports medicine clinics, rehabilitation centers, school-based programs, and more.
“We are excited to bring our experience and proven model for delivering the world’s most advanced sports medicine to the residents of Northeast Florida,” said Founder and orthopedic surgeon James Andrews, MD. “At Andrews, it is important for us to align with organizations that share our commitment to innovation, quality, and patient-centered care and we have found that partner in Flagler Health+.”
Flagler Health+ launched its Orthopedic Specialists practice in February of 2020, which currently includes locations in Palm Coast, St. Augustine, and Ponte Vedra, Florida. The partnership with Andrews will maximize existing talent and resources while building a broader network of sports medicine providers and services across Northeast Florida.
“Dr. Andrews is truly a legend in the field of sports medicine, as evidenced by the premier sports teams and athletes from around the world who consistently choose the Andrews name when seeking advanced orthopedic care,” stated Flagler Health+ President & CEO Jason Barrett. “Flagler Health+ has made a commitment to deliver services that meet the unique needs of our communities, as Northeast Florida continues to grow. This affiliation ensures that families across the region have access to the very best in prevention, treatment, surgery and rehabilitation for joint health.”
Flagler Health+ anticipates breaking ground on the Health Village portion of the Durbin Park campus in the Fall of 2021 followed soon after by the ambulatory surgery center. The property is located between Interstate 95 and State Road 9B.
