For more than 35 years, Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic (TOC) has helped patients live healthy lives through exceptional orthopedic service and compassionate care. Based in Florida’s capital city, the clinic provides the highest quality orthopedic and sports medicine care in North Florida and South Georgia. Now, with the help of Hancock Whitney, a new state-of-the-art facility is under construction.

“Physical activity is essential to a healthy lifestyle,” said Mark Didier, CEO. “We work to empower every patient, from all ages and skill levels, to regain and maintain an active lifestyle – most importantly, with the proper education in order to prevent injury.”
TOC employs 27 physicians, as well as an additional 300+ employees, including PA’s, ARNP’s, RN’s, certified athletic trainers, certified orthotics and an extensive support team of medical and technical assistants.
With six locations in the region, thousands of patients pass through their doors each year.
“We strive to provide patient-centered care – giving our patients immediate and convenient access to the latest in treatment protocols and procedures,” shared Mark. “Over the past couple of years, we recognized that in order to better serve our patients, we needed more space.”
In early 2019, TOC broke ground on a new two-story, 38,000-square-foot clinic, which will house several orthopedic sub-specialties, including total joints, spine, pain management, trauma and TOC Now, the urgent orthopedic walk-in clinic. Over 90 percent of the project is being built with the help of local contractors and organizations – including Hancock Whitney.
“Hancock Whitney has been with us every step of the way,” explained Mark. “The most important being helping us to find the right piece of property to build on.”
Hancock Whitney also oversaw the contracting and financing phase of the project.
The new facility will also provide the latest in digital X-Ray Technology, on site physical rehabilitation services and, most importantly, allow TOC to consolidate several of their clinics. The facility is expected to open in Summer 2020.
“Our relationship with Hancock Whitney throughout this project has been a real win-win,” said Mark. “I’m confident in saying that I’ve never been more excited for the future of TOC.”
