Meet the Team
Dr. William Leone has earned a reputation as one of the nation’s top orthopedic surgeons. He is a key part of the leadership team that has garnered Holy Cross Hospital numerous awards and honors, including HealthGrades Joint Replacement Excellence Award™ and a Five Star Rating for Overall Orthopedic Services and honors as one of the Best Hospitals in Miami-Fort Lauderdale, FL in U.S. News & World Report’s first-ever Best Hospitals metro area rankings (Orthopedics, 2011). In 2012, Holy Cross Hospital was honored with an “A” Hospital Safety ScoreSM by The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits. The Hospital Safety ScoreSM was calculated under the guidance of The Leapfrog Group’s Blue Ribbon Expert Panel using publicly available data on patient injuries, medical and medication errors, and infections.
Dr. Leone’s dedication to his practice has led to a new model for orthopedic care—one that combines specialized surgical interventions with a high level of personal attention. Dr. Leone has designed this model to maximize patient-doctor communication and reduce the anxiety, fear and pain too often associated with medical conditions and treatment.
From the moment patients make their first appointment, through surgery and rehabilitation, they are treated with compassion and their concerns are a priority. Appointments take place when scheduled. And arrangements for everything from private rooms to VIP meals to extra night’s stays are easily made. Central to our model is providing consistently excellent surgical outcomes while prioritizing our patients’ peace-of-mind, respecting their time and their dignity.
While Medicare patients will pay Dr. Leone’s surgical fee, the ancillary costs of their pre-surgical treatment, hospital stay, post-surgery rehabilitation and equipment still are covered by Medicare and other insurers. Dr. Leone is part of the Holy Cross Medical Group and as a result will take all insurances that the medical group accepts.
