– OFAC team

"Since 1998, our practice has delivered personalized and advanced foot and ankle care. We were the region’s first practice dedicated to specialized foot and ankle care. This partnership will allow us to grow and accelerate on our promise to deliver outstanding clinical care, research and education and service to the community,” said OFA President Dr. Gregory C. Berlet.

“Our leadership team went through a thorough process to ensure this partnership will benefit our organization and future growth plans. With this partnership, and OrthoAIIiance's proven track record as the largest alliance of orthopedic practices in Ohio, we will be able to expand while creating new career and development opportunities for our team members,” Dr. Berlet added.

Based in Cincinnati, OA formed in partnership with leading Midwest physician practices and Revelstoke Capital Partners, a Denver-based private equity firm. The company is building one of the country’s leading orthopedic management organizations, providing operations, marketing, and patient experience expertise and resources to partner practices working at the forefront of life-changing advances in orthopedics and sports medicine.

In just the last few years, OA has grown quickly to over 100 physicians and 1,400 employees.

"We are proud that OFA and CFA are now members of OrthoAlliance," said OA CEO Andy Blankemeyer. "And we are excited about growing our footprint across Central Ohio and the possibilities this relationship provides to elevate orthopedic care in Ohio and across the nation."

Under this partnership, OFA and CFA physicians and staff will continue to focus on providing extraordinary patient care and day-to-day operations, while OrthoAlliance provides additional administrative support for their practice.

"OFA and CFA patients will experience no changes in the doctors they trust or the services they rely on," Blankemeyer said. "In fact, they will benefit from greater access to the latest surgical and medical advances as well as additional resources and investment as we move into the future."
