Lakewood Health System is partnering with Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO) to provide world-class orthopedic care to patients at Lakewood. We are continually working to advance and improve the care we provide patients, and TCO—proud sports medicine partner of the Minnesota Vikings, Twins, and St. Paul Saints—will allow us to do just that.
“Partnering with a best-in-class organization like TCO is a great opportunity for Lakewood Health System and our patients,” said Craig Wolhowe, Vice President of Clinics and Providers. “We are excited to be able to offer their services locally, so patients and our community have the opportunity to receive great care, close to home.”
With a 99% overall patient satisfaction score, TCO brings the best in orthopedic care to our region. This partnership allows access to expanded specialty care offerings, the knowledge and expertise of over 120 world-class orthopedic providers, and one of the most robust sports medicine programs in the country.
“TCO makes us better,” says Dr. Christine Albrecht, Chief Medical Officer at Lakewood. “Their providers are outstanding, their commitment to quality outcomes is second to none, and their expertise in the area of sports medicine is a huge addition to our patient care capabilities. Along with that, we will be able to increase the number of fracture care and regular procedures we’re able to do at Lakewood, which we would previously have had to send elsewhere.”
Lakewood orthopedic patients who currently have an appointment or procedure scheduled with us will be contacted by a member of the Lakewood team to discuss their options. Questions can be directed to Lakewood’s Customer Experience department at 218-894-8778.
