Why Slocum?

Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is more than a workplace; it’s a mission that we get to share. Established by one of the original architects of sports medicine, Slocum Center has spent over half a century growing and evolving its mission to enhance health and knowledge by providing advanced, comprehensive, and integrated orthopedic care for our patients. Today, we are united and driven by a commitment to higher values, both new and old. 

  • Patient Experience – access that is unparalleled
  • Excellence – in our care, service, and impact
  • Teamwork – serving each other, together
  • Culture – promoting integrity and compassion

At Slocum, we team up to provide equal access to orthopedic specialists who partner with patients to restore health and function. We take pride in creating an organization that promotes trust, respect, support, and professional development, and our care providers work together to ensure the best orthopedic services are available for all of our patients. We pioneer advancements in the orthopedic and sports medicine fields through professional affiliations and collaboration, with a commitment to service, training, and mentorship.
