Rochester, N.Y.-based UR Medicine plans to open a surgery center at a 300,000-square foot outpatient orthopedic campus by the end of the year, rochesterfirst.com reported July 1.
The campus will be one of the country's largest orthopedic campuses, which UR Medicine estimates will see about 250,000 patients annually. It will cost more than $200 million to develop and will employ almost 700 staff, with almost 200 new jobs introduced, according to the report.
The campus will include a four-story tower, slated to open in the fall of 2023, that will feature diagnostic imaging, exam rooms, sports medicine facilities and wellness services.
"There will be a dedicated space for sports performance and injury prevention, an ambulatory surgery space, and then also the ability for people to have surgeries that require an overnight stay, which is a real innovation," Paul Rubery, MD, chair of UR Orthopedics, told the publication.
