Fremont Health and OrthoNebraska Expand Partnership
08/22/2017

Fremont Health announces an expanded partnership with OrthoNebraska (formerly OrthoWest), widely regarded as the premier orthopaedic group in the region.

According to Brett Richmond, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President of Fremont Health, the partnership will allow Fremont Health to expand orthopaedic services available to patients in the Fremont area and will include additional orthopaedic sub-specialties.

“OrthoNebraska is one of the longest standing orthopaedic specialty practices in the region and includes 25 of the most respected, fellowship-trained and/or Board Certified orthopaedic physicians and surgeons,” says Richmond. “We started our partnership with them in 2015 in order to bring physicians with hand/wrist and foot/ankle sub-specialties to Fremont.” That agreement brought Drs. Andrew and Michael Thompson to the clinic. They will continue to provide services in Fremont. Drs. Bryan Bredthauer and Steve Kumagai will also join OrthoNebraska and will continue to see patients at Fremont Health Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine.

“We are committed to providing the highest quality of care to the people in our communities, and we are excited to have this partnership with OrthoNebraska , one of the area’s most trusted physician teams,” says Richmond.

“Beginning April 1, 2017, OrthoNebraska will assume management of Fremont Health Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. Drs. Scott Reynolds, Eric Samuelson, Bryan Bredthauer, Steve Kumagai, Andrew Thompson, Michael Thompson, John Galligan, and David Brown will see patients in the clinic and provide services at Fremont Health Medical Center, including orthopaedics coverage in the Emergency Department, and surgical services at both the Medical Center and Fremont Health Surgery Center,” explains Richmond.

"OrthoNebraska is excited about the opportunity to further our relationship with Fremont Health, Midland University athletes and the Fremont community,” says Dr. Scott Reynolds, Vice President of OrthoNebraska . “This partnership allows us to continue to expand our access and bring unmatched orthopaedic service to communities outside of Omaha. As a group of sub-specialized physicians, we look forward to strengthening our dedication to serve the healthcare needs of individuals and families throughout the area by seeing patients and performing surgery in Fremont."
