To celebrate the amazing work of our team and show our appreciation for their dedication to excellence, we came together as a family for a day of fun at the US National Whitewater Center.
"I don’t know where I would be in life right now if it wasn’t for some of my previous team leads who helped me when I was lost along the way, as well as for the friends that I have made that have become more than “work friends."
"My favorite part of working at OC is the team and providers I work with. We strive every day to make each patient’s experience at OC a positive one."

"What I like most is the opportunity to work with our providers to help improve the quality of care given to our patients."
"I feel very fortunate to work in a place where a bad day doesn’t really exist."
"Since I have always been intrigued by numbers and problem-solving I'm proud to say I have my dream job."
"Working directly with the physicians has given me a different perspective as to what exactly their schedules entail and has given me a deep respect for what they do for OC patients and the community."
"From the day I started at OC, I was made to feel welcome and that my small contribution at work mattered. It’s obvious that OC cares about patients and community, but it also cares about its employees."
"It’s a great feeling being with a patient from start to finish and watching them return to being successful in their respective sport."
"Every day is different, there’s always a challenge and I’m never bored."

"I love how involved OrthoCarolina is in the community and the dedication we give to patients!"
"I love the group of people I work with. The Recruitment Team is fun and supportive and we have meshed into a kind of unique family in that while we have to work together, we choose to accept each other with our quirks and eccentricities. Hands down, the best team I have ever been a part of."
"OrthoCarolina really focuses on helping people and the community. I love that I get to help patients improve and get them through a potential difficult time in their lives."
"I’m so impressed with OrthoCarolina’s forward thinking mentality, and for me to have a seat at the table around the strategic decisions that this organization is making is truly invigorating!"

OrthoCarolina is a fantastic organization. I always knew it was a great place to be, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do. Four years ago, I stumbled upon this job.
