Spanning 375,000 square feet, the project was completed in two phases with the first phase encompassing the delivery of a six-story, medical office pavilion with 12 operating rooms and the latest advancements in medical technology, including imaging services such as magnetic resonance imaging with augmented reality. A 62-exam room clinic, also housed in the pavilion, offers walk-in orthopedic care along with a physical therapy space featuring sports simulators for athletes. Phase two included a seven-story facility featuring the state’s first orthopedic hospital with 10 additional operating rooms, 75 inpatient smart rooms, and a 10-station Bioskills lab.
