The collaboration recognizes the 70-year relationship between Steindler and Mercy Iowa City and their united reputation for orthopedic excellence. This alliance follows a national trend of orthopedic groups and hospitals creating formal relationships to strengthen access and quality. The partnership includes enhanced care coordination and shared management responsibility of the orthopedic service line at Mercy Iowa City, plans to collaborate on a medical park in North Liberty, and improved access to high-quality orthopedic care in Eastern Iowa.
“We are pleased to announce this agreement after many successful years of working closely to provide orthopedic care in the region,” said Mike Trachta, Acting President and CEO Mercy Iowa City. “We are looking forward to continuing to strengthen our partnership with the talented team at Steindler for even greater patient outcomes.”
Once fully implemented, the medical park will provide patients with advanced options for orthopedic care in the region. Leveraging clinical, administrative, and patient-centered management between the two organizations will deliver enhanced care quality through innovative tools, technologies, and techniques in modern facilities.
“The vision is to create a premier destination for orthopedic care,” said Steindler President and Chief Executive Officer Patrick Magallanes. “Steindler had a vision for the future of orthopedic care and independent physician practice in our community and committed to the concept by purchasing land in North Liberty.
