Gainesville, FL – December 21, 2022The Orthopaedic Institute has partnered with the HURT! mobile app to offer free virtual after-hours access to orthopaedic specialists for the treatment of sudden, acute injuries. 

The HURT! app is a convenient way for patients to bypass unnecessary visits to the emergency room and receive the attention they need from an entire network of orthopaedic experts. Within minutes of an injury, patients can connect with a specialist to receive a diagnosis and personalized care plan.

“We are excited to partner with the HURT! app to offer our patients even more convenient access to the care they need,” said Rich Gilbert, MD, CEO of The Orthopaedic Institute. “This partnership allows us to provide high-quality care to our patients, even after our regular office hours.”

The HURT! app is intended for new, unexpected injuries and may not be used for post-op or follow-up appointments. Patients of The Orthopaedic Institute should continue following the treatment plan provided by their physician and schedule ongoing, in-office care as needed.

“At The Orthopaedic Institute, we are always looking for ways to improve the patient experience and provide the best care possible,” said Jim Needham, CEO of The Orthopaedic Institute. “Our partnership with the HURT! app is a great example of this commitment, as it gives our patients the ability to connect with orthopaedic specialists quickly and easily from the comfort of their own homes. It is an invaluable resource for those who experience sudden, acute injuries, and we are proud to offer it to our patients.”
