Scott Orthopedic Center (SOC) has joined St. Mary’s Medical Center (SMMC), a member of Mountain Health Network (MHN). The acquisition was completed March 31, 2022.

“We are pleased to welcome Scott Orthopedic Center and its outstanding team of physicians to Mountain Health Network,” said Kevin Yingling, RPh, MD, CEO, MHN and president of Cabell Huntington Hospital and SMMC.

SOC will maintain its name and SOC physicians will continue to provide services at their current location on the fourth floor of the Highlawn Medical Building at 2828 First Ave., Huntington.

“Scott Orthopedic Center and St. Mary’s Medical Center have had a positive relationship for many years as we have worked together to provide quality orthopedic care to the patients of the Tri-State,” said Angie Swearingen, chief operating officer, SMMC. “We look forward to working with the entire SOC team.”

“Our founders helped establish outstanding orthopedic care in the Huntington community,” said Dr. Luis Bolano, president of Scott Orthopedic Group. “We have had the privilege to partner with all Mountain Health institutions and physicians over the past 93 years of our existence and we will continue to serve the Tri-State region with pride and commitment through this partnership. We are excited about this formal affiliation with St. Mary’s and Mountain Health.”
