Sept. 22, 2010 - PRLog -- Molly Sandvig officially announced today that she will be joining Joint Replacement Hospitals of America (JRHA) ( http://jrhamedical.com ), a Rancho Mirage, Calif.-based company, as the organization's COO. She will be resigning from her position as Executive Director of Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Physician Hospitals of America (PHA) ( http://physicianhospitalsofamerica.com/ ), effective January 1, 2011.

Sandvig, an attorney by trade, has focused her recent efforts lobbying on behalf of physician owned hospitals, for healthcare legislation changes. Her new role with JRHA will include responsibility for the company's business development, physician relations, and marketing functions.

JRHA builds and operates knee- and hip-replacement specialty surgery centers in the U.S. and abroad. According to co-founder, Richard Warner, "The Joint Replacement Hospitals of America LLC was born out of the need to fulfill the increasing demand for joint replacement." The joint replacement segment of the orthopedic market has grown about 4% per year over the last 20 years, but is projected to grow at 12-14% per year over the next 12-15 years. JRHA is currently developing its first two facilities, with a total of 11 hospitals planned in the next 7 years.

Emphasizing its focus on patient outreach, JRHA sponsors the Foundation for the Advancement in Research in Medicine, Inc. (FARM), a 501c(3) non-profit organization, and its consumer outreach division BoneSmart®. BoneSmart®'s website ( http://www.bonesmart.org/ ) receives more than 1.5 million patient visits per year, and is recognized as one of the leading informational resources on the web for joint replacement patients. Says Warner, "A 25 year definitive agreement has been executed with the Foundation benefitting JRHA and its specialty services."

Sandvig points out that part of what attracted her to JRHA is the company's focus on "quality, efficient patient care, patient education on joint replacement technology from pre-surgery through rehab, physician governance, and providing specialized facilities through which the entire process of joint replacement can be even further improved."
