In January 2021, Azalea Orthopedics will launch our new combined Orthopedic group practice, OrthoLoneStar. Azalea Orthopedics will continue to be the same trusted partner and resource for you, your family, your loved ones, and all of East Texas. For over 22 years, our care philosophy has always centered on the patient and on ensuring that we deliver exceptional outcomes and superior experiences for our community. OrthoLoneStar is the next step in delivering on those promises.
Private practice medicine is our way to ensure that healthcare decisions are made by physician and patient in a direct and independent manner. Our belief is that the general practice of medicine is weakened and outcomes are impacted when external forces interfere with the relationship between you and your doctor. We have been able to best serve East Texas because we have been leaders in the region. OrthoLoneStar allows us to build on our legacy of service and partner with like-minded groups to advance care across the entire state of Texas.
Azalea Orthopedics is a founding division of OrthoLoneStar, which is important because our combined group is built around quality and value for the patient. By joining orthopedic practices that share core values like caring and quality, we have opened pathways for increased service, future-focused analytics and research, and greater accessibility. We can provide a seamless transition of care and for peerless levels of expertise in and around Tyler, Houston, Dallas, and Austin. As we find similarly situated and high functioning groups, we will continue to build our presence across Texas. Azalea Orthopedics is proud to be part of OrthoLoneStar, and Azalea Orthopedics is proud to be part of the legacy of East Texas. We believe that we are stronger today than we were yesterday, and we believe that your continued belief in us will drive us to be stronger tomorrow, with you. In a practice built on independence and buoyed by your trust, we thank you for allowing us to continue to be stronger together.
