White River Health Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Celebrates Ribbon-Cutting

The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for White River Health Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine.

White River Health Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine provides diagnosis, management, and treatment of general orthopaedic conditions as well as treatment, rehabilitation, and training recommendations for sports injuries. The Orthopaedic and Sports Clinic utilizes the latest innovations in surgical and non-surgical care to treat a full range of orthopaedic conditions, from stress fractures and sprains to full joint replacement.

White River Health Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine started in the early 80s with just two providers. By summer 2024, they will have eight providers offering services out of the clinic's spacious new building, which includes room for future expansion. 

"This building is for you," said Gary Paxson, CEO of White River Health, addressing the community. "This is a way for us to serve you better now and into the future. The legacy of orthopedic surgery in this town started many years ago. This building provides space for that legacy to continue for years to come."   

Orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Jeff Angel explained how it's a team effort from hospital staff to provide excellent, modern, standard care in a small community. "It's just amazing the coordination and how we can get patients so quickly through their [healthcare] episode with such a caring attitude and attention to detail," he said. 

White River Health's commitment to pursuing excellence in their healthcare services is reflected in their Orthopaedic surgeons decision to meet once a month to analyze areas that need improvement. Additionally, they have been recognized as one of the top 100 hospitals in the nation for joint replacement. 

"If there is one thing that I've learned, it's not to take health care for granted," said BACC CEO Crystal Johnson. "While other systems across our state are scaling back and reducing services, White River Health is making the necessary investments to continue to grow and provide a sustainable healthcare system for us." 

Ambassadors in attendance included: Amanda Dickey (Block Insurance), Amy Finster (White River Health), Lori Tacker (Batesville Eye Care Center), Eva Henriksen (Merchants & Planters Bank), Aaron Herndon (Citizens Bank), Ashley Engles (Citizens Bank), Lucy Rodriguez (George's Inc), Peter Rouiler (First Community Bank), Michael Kelley (Peco Foods), Megan Renihan (Batesville School District), Lindy Hopper (First Community Bank), Jesse Freiert (Fringe Salon), and Tammy Foster (First Community Bank).
