EmergeOrtho Wilmington Changes Name to EmergeOrtho Coastal Region

Wilmington, NC – June 16, 2022 – EmergeOrtho’s Wilmington Region has announced a name change to EmergeOrtho Coastal Region, effective immediately.

Shawn B. Hocker, MD, President of EmergeOrtho Coastal Region, said the change is important because the new name is more representative of the communities and patients EmergeOrtho serves throughout eastern North Carolina.

“It recognizes that our care extends well beyond the city of Wilmington and New Hanover County, and into Brunswick, Onslow and Pender counties,” said Hocker. “We’ve been serving these areas for years, and we will continue to expand our locations and services in response to the region’s needs. EmergeOrtho Coastal Region accurately describes who we are and where we serve.”

 
Zachary Welch, the region’s Executive Director, emphasized that the only change is to the practice’s regional name. “It does not affect patient care in any way,” he said. “Patients will continue to have access to the same high-quality, patient-centered orthopedic care and services offered by our current providers at all of our regional EmergeOrtho locations.”

The name change is being reflected in the practice’s physical and online presence, including on its website and across all social media channels, such as Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

New and current patients should contact EmergeOrtho at 910-332-3800 with questions.
