Unity Health System launched a program this week that provides a central access point for people suffering from foot and ankle conditions.
The first of its kind in the area, the Unity Foot and Ankle Center opened Monday, February 24.
The Center was developed through a collaborative partnership among Unity medical staff, Unity Physical Therapy and community partners. Unity’s network of specialists includes podiatrists, orthopedists, physical therapists and orthotic experts. The patient’s condition determines the appropriate action to be taken and may range from a comprehensive consultation to podiatric or orthopaedic surgery.
“We’ve thoughtfully created a better way for patients to access the right treatment team for their condition,” said Luke Loveys, M.D., Chief of Orthopaedics at Unity Hospital. “Our approach is simple. One call and the patient is seen by the appropriate specialist.”
The goal of the Foot and Ankle Center is to have a Nurse Navigator guide patients smoothly through the treatment process in a manner that’s effective, efficient and ‘user friendly’.
“Aligning these partners really showcases Unity’s commitment to provide the absolute best possible health care experience,” Loveys added.
The administrative office for the Unity Foot and Ankle Center is located at Unity at Ridgeway, 2655 Ridgeway Avenue. Appointments can be made by calling (585) 368-FEET.
