EmergeOrtho PA Receives National Recognition

Johns Creek, GA, Jan. 11, 2017 – Krista Kathleen Bartlett, PA-C, who is employed by EmergeOrtho, has been nationally recognized for earning a specialty credential called a Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) from the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).

Bartlett was recognized for earning a CAQ in Orthopaedic Surgery, a distinction earned by meeting licensure, education and experience requirements and then passing a national exam in this specialty area. She is one of only four Certified PAs in North Carolina to earn a CAQ in Orthopaedic Surgery since the program’s inception in 2011.

“Certified PAs are prepared and proven providers who contribute real value to the healthcare of this nation,” says Dawn Morton-Rias, Ed.D, PA-C, president and CEO of NCCPA. “They graduate from demanding masters-level programs, pass a rigorous certification exam, and maintain certification at the highest level through continuing medical education programs and retesting throughout their careers. Certified PAs increase access to care for patients in every specialty and clinical setting, including those that are historically underserved.”

CAQs are offered to certified PAs in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, emergency medicine, hospital medicine, orthopaedic surgery, nephrology, pediatrics and psychiatry.

JANUARY 3, 2017 – EmergeOrtho is opening a new 30,000 square foot building in Brier Creek this week to provide comprehensive Orthopaedic and Specialty care to Wake County.  Located at 7850 Brier Creek Parkway, the location will offer Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine, General Surgery, Bariatric Surgery, Bone Health, Physical and Occupational Therapy, and an after-hours Orthopaedic Urgent Care. The Brier Creek office will be comprised of experienced, board-certified providers who have been treating patients at other Triangle locations of EmergeOrtho, formerly Triangle Orthopaedic Associates.

“We formed EmergeOrtho to preserve the private practice model, a standard of care that puts the patient first.  We are proud to expand our services in Wake County with this new, state-of-the-art facility,” says Dr. Thomas Dimmig, acting president of EmergeOrtho.

The location of the new office furthers EmergeOrtho’s dedication to patient-centered care by further simplifying outpatient surgery.  The Brier Creek clinic is located adjacent to Triangle Orthopaedics Surgery Center, a 10,000 square foot single-specialty surgery center dedicated to Orthopaedics.  Patients scheduled for outpatient procedures will be able to have pre-op appointments, surgery, follow-up care, and physical rehabilitation in one convenient area.

The new office is also near another EmergeOrtho facility, a partnership with D1 Sports, located at 6330 Mount Herman Road providing physical therapy and sports medicine.

EmergeOrtho has 49 office locations in 21 counties from the mountains to the coast of North Carolina.  The name change came in August of 2016 as four physician-owned practices joined  in a common mission of delivering innovative, streamlined, patient-centered care, empowering patients to emerge stronger.
