Verity Health Partners with Prestigious Orthopedic Group

Verity Health System has taken a significant step forward by partnering with SOAR (Sports, Orthopedic And Rehabilitation Medicine Associates) to extend the system’s orthopedic and sports medicine reach in northern California. SOAR is now part of Verity Medical Foundation, effective July 1.

SOAR—with locations in Redwood City, San Francisco, San Jose, and Soquel—is recognized around the world as a leader in sports medicine, orthopedic surgery, rehabilitation, and rheumatology. As the team physicians for the San Francisco Giants and other high-profile professional and university sports teams, the physicians at SOAR utilize The Team Approach to deliver the highest standard of orthopedic care and personal attention to every patient.

“Bringing the prestigious medical team at SOAR into Verity Health’s growing integrated health system is another forward step for the communities we serve,” said Eric Marton, president and CEO of Verity Medical Foundation. “As a part of Verity Medical Foundation, SOAR will not only expand our scope of service and geographic footprint, but also help develop and lead our orthopedic services lines at Verity’s northern California hospitals: Seton Medical Center in Daly City; Seton Coastside in Moss Beach; O’Connor Hospital in San Jose; and, St. Louise Regional Hospital in Gilroy.”
SOAR patients can expect enhanced services through the new relationship with Verity, including acceptance of more insurance plans and HMOs, and access to medical specialists in a larger physician network. The SOAR locations will remain the same and the staff with whom current patients are familiar will continue to provide care.

Michael F. Dillingham, M.D., orthopedic surgeon, co-founder of SOAR, said, “This is a new era for SOAR. Verity is the perfect partner to take our extremely successful practice and expand access to more patients who can benefit from our cutting-edge, personalized service. Whether a professional athlete, a weekend warrior, or someone who simply wants to walk without pain, the SOAR team is dedicated to helping each patient return to an active and pain-free lifestyle.”
