Four orthopedic groups are collaborating to develop a new urgent care and orthopedic surgery center in Dillon, Colo., according to Summit Daily.

Here's what you need to know:

1. The groups teaming up are:

• Vail-Summit Orthopaedics in Vail, Colo.
• The Steadman Clinic in Vail

• Howard Head Sports Medicine in Vail

2. The groups presented their preliminary designs for the 80,000- to 100,000-square-foot facility to the Dillon Town Council Aug. 22.

3. Tom Braun, president of Braun Associates, is representing the group. He told the council the group would work as a campus instead of as a free-standing facility.
