OrthoNOW®, the nation’s only network of Orthopedic Urgent Care Centers, celebrated the grand opening of OrthoNOW® Biscayne on Thursday, March 11, 2016. Located at the intersection of NE 69th and Biscayne Blvd, the Center boasts a team of orthopedic specialists who treat broken bones, sprains, torn ligaments and muscles, cuts, sports medicine and workers compensation injuries. In attendance were influential business leaders and local dignitaries including Claudia Molina (Author, Nutritionist and Fitness Expert); Barry Johnson (CEO, Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce); Marie F. Bell (Intergovernmental Liaison, Office Mayor Carlos Gimenez) and Cynthia Demos (Emmy- Award Winning Journalist).
The opening of OrthoNOW® Biscayne follows on the heels of Center openings in Aventura and Pinecrest and precedes the opening of the Coral Way Center, expected within the month. OrthoNOW® is a revolutionary new concept in health care offering patients a money and time-saving alternative for orthopedic and sports injuries by allowing for emergency access to orthopedic specialists. Additional centers are also slated to open later this year in Orlando and Georgia.
The evening event included a ribbon cutting led by OrthoNOW® Biscayne owners Drs. Alejandro Badia and Laurent Dreyfuss and Justin Irizarry and David Bohórquez, D. O. who serves as OrthoNOW® Biscayne’s Medical Director. Dr. Bohórquez, who has completed a fellowship in sports medicine and is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, stated “This community is very active and, when injuries occur, we want our neighbors to know that our medical team is ready to assess and treat injuries on a walk-in basis. We are looking forward to caring for the people who live and work in the MIMO corridor for decades to come. It gives us great pride to be part of this vibrant neighborhood and we appreciate those who came out to celebrate our beginning.”
