ALLENTOWN, Pa., September 12, 2014—Addressing the need for healthcare providers to better serve patients who are busy or out of town during the week or experience a weekend sports injury, Coordinated Health today announced that it will start elective orthopedic surgeries on Saturdays. Coordinated Health is the only healthcare provider in its eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey region to offer this service. 

The Saturday surgeries and other new services raise Coordinated Health’s standing as the most accessible musculoskeletal healthcare and sports medicine provider in its area.

The first Saturday surgery was scheduled this week for September 27 at Coordinated Health’s Bethlehem hospital at 2310 Highland Avenue.

“Today, consumers expect greater simplicity and accessibility in every aspect of their lives,” said Coordinated Health CEO Dr. Emil DiIorio. “We’ve listened carefully to our patients and understand that we need to assemble and provide them with flexible hours, immediate support, and locations near and between their homes and workplaces. Coordinated Health will continue to enhance and expand services that deliver on that need.”  

Coordinated Health offerings featured in a new advertising campaign titled Unbeatable Access include:

Elective orthopedic surgeries on Saturdays: The Saturday services also include imaging and physical therapy.

Same-day orthopedic appointments: Any patient who calls Coordinated Health on weekday mornings can receive an orthopedic appointment that same day.

Extended Friday night hours:  In addition to being on area football fields, Coordinated Health orthopedic surgeons will also be on call for six Care on Demand locations. 

Saturday morning appointments: Orthopedic surgeons will be seeing patients at two Coordinated Health locations, 2775 Schoenersville Road in Bethlehem and 1621 North Cedar Crest Boulevard in Allentown, every Saturday morning.

24/7 live support: Coordinated Health patients can schedule appointments around the clock through or with a Coordinated Health Solution Center representative at 877-247-8080.

Faster surgeon-led care: Coordinated Health is offering an alternative option for those with orthopedic injuries, such as fractures, who may have previously had to wait at an emergency room for care.  Patients can now go to any of Coordinated Health’s six conveniently-located Care on Demand walk-in locations to receive real-time services including imaging (MRI). Care on Demand offers extended evening and weekend hours.
