Spine Nevada and Tahoe Fracture Announce Rebranding and Name Change to Swift Institute

RENO, Nev., Oct. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Earlier in 2022, Spine Nevada (including Swift Urgent Clinic and Vein Nevada) and Tahoe Fracture merged to create Nevada’s most comprehensive musculoskeletal care platform. In partnership with Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company (HOPCo), the two organizations have since begun collaborating to provide specialty care throughout Nevada, offering specialty care in many clinical areas including orthopedics, spine surgery , neurosurgery, interventional pain management, physiotherapy, radiology, and venous care.

Today we are pleased to announce a new brand name for our unified practice, Swift Institute.

“Going forward, we will work even more closely to reshape musculoskeletal care in Nevada. Unifying under a common brand name is a natural step on this journey to benefit our team, our patients and the communities we serve. Additionally, our unified Swift Institute brand will help us further improve access by clearly identifying the providers, specialties and locations that are part of our growing practice,” said Ty Windfeldt, CEO of Swift Institute. “We are a team ready to take care of the people of our state. When patients see the Swift Institute brand, they can be assured that they are directly connected to the most advanced spine and orthopedic specialist care.

Swift Institute also reinforces our common identity through a unified electronic medical record. Implementing Athena, the electronic medical record currently in use across the Swift Institute, will have far-reaching impacts that will lead to better patient experiences. The platform prioritizes accuracy and safety and emphasizes a commitment to our patient-centered care. An electronic medical record also means a single online portal for Swift Institute patients. The patient portal is accessible via the new Swift Institute [https://theswiftinstitute.com] website that represents the entire spine, orthopedics and veins group. Additionally, building signage will be updated at the Swift Institute over the next six months.

“The rebranding is more than a name change; Becoming Swift Institute allows us to expand our current service offerings and provide greater access to more patients,” says Nicholas Dirig, DO, president of Tahoe Fracture.

“As two organizations that have served the Northern Nevada region for decades, we came together because we knew we could have a greater impact on patient outcomes and solve health issues better together than we could. we could alone,” said James Lynch, MD, president. from the Swift Institute. “Our collective mission is to help our patients return to active lives and to help improve the delivery of healthcare. As the healthcare landscape evolves, it has become essential for our organization to speak to the communities we serve as a distinct brand. For years you have known our specialty practices by many names, but now excellence in spine and orthopedics has one name: Swift Institute.
