“We regularly have stories of employees whose lives have been changed by improving their health — they’ve come off medications they’ve been on for years, they can play with their kids or grandchildren, or they’ve overcome a chronic disease. Our staff has developed a true culture of wellness and epitomizes our mission of making lives better.” — Bruce Cohen, MD | OrthoCarolina CEO, Foot & Ankle Surgeon
Making lives better starts with taking care of our teammates. At OrthoCarolina, we recognize the importance of maintaining one's physical, mental and emotional health, especially in times of heightened stress and isolation like what most of us have experienced throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
