BLOOMINGTON -

Indianapolis-based Methodist Sports Medicine is adding to its portfolio. The company has acquired Bloomington Bone & Joint Clinic, though financial details were not disclosed. The two companies will officially merge to become Methodist Sports Medicine Bloomington in April.

Methodist Sports Medicine Chief Executive Officer Marty Rosenberg says the company does not anticipate any job reductions as a result of the acquisition. Bloomington Bone & Joint Clinic currently has about 20 employees.

In an email to Inside INdiana Business, a spokesperson for Methodist Sports Medicine says the company plans to invest about $250,000 on various technology upgrades at the clinic.

"This merger gives Methodist Sports Medicine the opportunity to bring the two businesses together to offer our patients a broader service area, plus bring additional resources to Bloomington," said Mark Ritter, president of Methodist Sports Medicine. "We put together two groups sharing similar missions in terms of patient care and service, and will continue our goal of providing exceptional care to the Southern Indiana region."

The two companies have worked together since the early 1980s. Bloomington Bone & Joint founder Sterling Doster began providing sports medicine treatment for the Indiana University football team with Methodist Sports Medicine's John McCarroll.

Following the merging of the two companies, Methodist Sports Medicine will bring in Scott Linger, who will begin treating general sports medicine patients exclusively at the Bloomington clinic in August.

Earlier this month, Ritter was named medical director of the Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield. Last February, Methodist Sports Medicine was named the official sports medicine provider of Grand Park.
