Orthopedic practice offers unique care
under one roof in Vero Beach
In a world where corporate health care absorption of
private practice physicians is common, the doctors at
Vero Orthopaedics took an entirely different approach to
expansion and banded together to build their own state
of the art facility that rivals any hospital.
Vero Orthopaedics opened in 1976 with three surgeons
and grew the practice to include 10 specialty trained doctors
and a large support staff. It quickly became known for expert
care and treatment of bone, joint, muscle, and neurological
injuries and conditions. Realizing that the current home
couldn’t keep up with the demand, a plan was put in motion
to own and operate a unique care facility where all facets of
orthopedic care could be administered from the initial exam,
to on-site surgery and follow-up physical therapy.
The visionary behind the ambitious plan is Jennifer Davidson,
CEO of Vero Orthopaedics.
“I’ve been with the company for 24 years, starting in the
nursing area, navigating through the administration department
to director of operations and took over as CEO about
eight years ago,” Davidson explained.
“We’ve built and expanded our practice by hiring fellowship
trained subspecialty surgeons to offer the best possible
care and access to same day appointments if you call before
3 p.m. Monday through Friday. It’s part of our ‘hurt today —

its new 66,000-square-foot
building on Indian River
Boulevard in August 2021.
