Why OCP?

OCP formed in 2017 with our initial practice partner, The Orthopaedic Institute. Since Varsity Healthcare Partners’ initial investment, the OCP platform has grown to include 8 practices, 78 physicians, 18 locations, and 3 states.

OCP has successfully completed more orthopedic practice affiliations than any other private equity-backed platform. All OCP practices retain their own unique identities and brands and maintain clinical autonomy. While select systems and back-office functions are centralized for efficiency, OCP’s focus is on providing additional resources to help support and grow its partner practices.

Having achieved meaningful scale through multiple paths: physician recruitment & practice affiliations, adding & expanding locations, renegotiating contracts, increasing ancillary services, and growing value-based care.

OCP seeks partners that share our values and goals, while others want to be big for the sake of being big.
