“This anniversary is truly an incredible milestone for us,” said Dr. Kay Kirkpatrick, Resurgens co-president. “Atlanta is such an amazing place for Resurgens to call home, and we value every day that we are able to serve the wonderful people who live here. We are proud to celebrate the past 15 years, but we are even more excited at what the future holds for us and the residents we serve.”
Resurgens PC was officially formed in 1999 when a group of seven local physician practices merged. After the merger, Resurgens was led by Dr. John C. Garrett who had the vision to provide innovative, patient-focused and comprehensive orthopaedic care to the greater Atlanta community. Resurgens’ newest leader, Dr. Douglas Lundy, co-president, is set to continue to guide Resurgens through the ever-changing health care environment with the same core values in mind.
“Resurgens has an outstanding group of physicians and employees who keep the group’s values at the center of all they do,” said Lundy. “In the uncertain world of changing health care, Resurgens will not forget the ideals we were founded on, and we will continue to evolve in order to stay on the forefront with our orthopaedic services.”
Over the years, Resurgens and its physicians have received countless industry and consumer-driven accolades, including Atlanta magazine’s Top Doctors Award, Lifestyles magazine’s Top Doc Award, Becker’s Orthopaedic & Spine Review’s Top Doctor Award, US News & World Report’s Top Doc Award, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Top Workplace Award, Gwinnett Magazine’s Top Physician Practice, the Douglas County Sentinel’s Readers’ Choice Award, Sam Olen’s Business Service Award, Arthritis Foundation’s Corporate Honoree and The Creative Growth Group’s Client Advisor Award.
In addition to the above awards, Resurgens founded the Resurgens Charitable Foundation 13 years ago and recently reached a milestone in their philanthropic quest to give back to the metro Atlanta community by surpassing $1 million in their donation efforts. Funding has been distributed to organizations and projects that promote active and healthy lifestyles to people of all ages and ability levels.
Each of the 21 offices will have their own birthday celebration for Resurgens’ 15 year anniversary and the more than 1,000 physicians and employees will jointly celebrate in October at the Resurgens Rally — a picnic for employees and families to celebrate the success of the practice and the Resurgens Foundation.
