Who we are
Extremity Healthcare, Inc. (“EHI”) is a revolutionary model in healthcare management. At EHI, our number one priority is to improve the lives of our patients, doctors, and affiliates, to create the most efficient group practice environment possible. We achieve this by providing the most advanced, integrated medical care with the highest level of economic efficiency. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, EHI was established in 2011 by the founding shareholders of Village Podiatry Centers, who had seen firsthand the effectiveness of the supergroup model in their own podiatry practice. By addressing doctors’ needs in a consolidated, integrated healthcare model, EHI is able to reward efficiency, improve patient outcomes, and allow our service providers to benefit from a more common-sense approach to healthcare. In EHI’s function as a holding company, it provides long-range strategic planning for the aggregation of multiple medical disciplines while driving organic growth initiatives. As a management services company, EHI provides a full suite of shared service solutions including billing, collections, compliance, tax, legal, human resources, marketing, scheduling, and operational planning.
award-winning supergroup model
EHI is the only company to develop and deploy a fully integrated operating platform to deliver comprehensive extremity medical care in a regional group practice model. We manage the business of medicine so our physicians can focus on patient care; resulting in improved outcomes for our patients and physicians. We currently own and operate the largest fully integrated extremity healthcare group in the United States and have plans to expand nationally. In addition to our 40+ Village Podiatry Centers locations across the Georgia and Tennessee region, our ancillary services include a total of six surgery centers, a pathology lab, a compounding pharmacy, and two laser treatment centers. Our Village Podiatry Centers supergroup is nationally recognized as a leader in podiatry. We are the largest, most profitable podiatry practice in the United States, and are poised to take advantage of multiple large market opportunities. Some of these opportunities include a growing nationwide podiatry market, healthcare technologies, and emerging industries such as wearable tech and the ‘Internet of Things.’ Our physicians are able to spend more time on patient care while increasing their income, without the stress of daily management tasks like purchasing and compliance. Our patients enjoy better care as a result of our highly qualified, more attentive physicians. Our shareholders enjoy accelerated value creation because of our organization’s dedication to patient and physician satisfaction. We are 40% owned by our physician shareholders, so our doctors enjoy concrete rewards for their dedication and hard work. This business model is a fully integrated shared services platform that allows all of our doctor members to legally participate in the ancillary income within their region while also having an ownership interest that gives them equity upside. We increase value for all our members by providing a proven model to establish and build out the regional group practice, develop huge operation and economic efficiencies at scale, and establish and build ancillary services to drive increased revenue. Our growth strategy is to focus on markets that can support a regional group practice with a minimum of 10,000 new patients per year.
What if you only had one invoice per month? What if you didn’t have to worry about scheduling patient appointments in-house? What if you could take charge of your online reputation without having to take extra time out of your day to manage it first hand? What if there were someone you could trust to perform these necessary management tasks for you on a daily basis? When you join Extremity, we’ll be in your corner from day one, helping you to reduce stress, save time, and run your practice at maximum efficiency for the benefit of you and your patients.

Control Costs for Anesthesia & Surgery
Traditional anesthesia models can be uncooperative with surgeons, inefficient and expensive, many times requiring subsidies from facilities. The current reimbursement environment requires you to evaluate every aspect of your facility and determine where to cut or eliminate costs and determine how to do more cases. If you have never thought anesthesia services could be provided at no cost to you, they can! If you don’t have a safety minded, supportive and cost free anesthesia service, you should!
Our professionals work closely with your hospital facility and staff to build professional relationships which encourage a productive work environment.
Turnkey solutions that bring increased efficiencies is really a dream come true.
Dispense High Quality Products Directly from Your Office to Meet Patients’ Daily Needs
When you join extremity, we supply our full product line of treatment solutions, creams, diabetic footwear, and other necessary devices for your patients’ needs. These products are made available direct from your office for your patients’ convenience, and you know you can trust the high quality of a consistent brand in EHI.
And because of your membership in EHI, you are able to pass on savings to your patients as a benefit of lower costs for you. Just another reason to join Extremity!
