Empowering Athletes: EmergeOrtho's New Partnership With North Carolina FC

At EmergeOrtho-Triangle Region, our commitment to enhancing health and well-being extends beyond our medical offices. We are thrilled to announce a partnership with North Carolina Football Club. As the new official team physicians and front-of-kit partner, we are honored to make an impactful difference on and off the field. This partnership is a testament to our shared goal of fostering a healthier and more vibrant community.

A Partnership Grounded in Shared Values

Our collaboration with North Carolina FC is not just a typical sponsorship; it is a partnership founded on mutual dedication to community well-being and excellence in sports. This multiyear agreement will see EmergeOrtho provide comprehensive medical coverage to North Carolina FC players, coaches, staff, and North Carolina Courage, the NWSL affiliate. This includes being the official team physician, orthopedic urgent care provider, physical therapy provider, and official orthopedic provider of NCFC. This partnership ensures the team’s health and performance and strengthens our commitment to the community.

“This marks a significant milestone for our organization as we embark on a promising partnership with EmergeOrtho,” said North Carolina FC Chief Operating Officer Ralph Vuono. “This collaboration is grounded in a shared commitment to enhancing the well-being of our players and the broader community. EmergeOrtho brings invaluable expertise to prioritize our players’ health, ensuring they receive top-tier medical care. This partnership fosters deep connections that contribute to the growth and vitality of the Triangle area. We are proud to collaborate with EmergeOrtho, recognizing the immense potential and value they see in North Carolina FC.”

Elevating Athletic Performance and Community Health

As the largest physician-owned orthopedic practice in North Carolina, EmergeOrtho brings decades of experience and knowledge. Our team of over 350 highly trained orthopedic physicians, specialists, and advanced practice providers is dedicated to delivering top-tier medical care. With more than 60 outpatient offices across 28+ counties, including 16 offices in 10 counties throughout the Triangle, we are well-positioned to serve the needs of the community and our new partners.

“We are excited to partner with NCFC and NC Courage, two winning teams in a professional sport that is exploding in popularity,” said Dr. David Musante, President, EmergeOrtho-Triangle Region. “As the official team physicians and orthopedic providers, we are confident we can help NCFC and NC Courage continue their success on the field, just as our winning team at EmergeOrtho has helped patients in our communities for over 70 years live healthier, more active lives both on and off the field.”

Giving Back Through the EmergeOrtho Charitable Fund

Our partnership with North Carolina FC extends far beyond the field. In a joint community initiative, 10% of revenue from all NCFC jersey sales will go to the EmergeOrtho Charitable Fund. This initiative offers fans a unique opportunity to support their team and contribute to the health and wellness of their community. The fund promotes health, wellness, and sportsmanship throughout North Carolina, underscoring our commitment to making a positive impact.
