    Alan Condon -  

    Since Jan. 1, Becker's Spine Review has reported on eight spine and orthopedic expansion projects that have cost at least $120 million:

    Grand Blanc, Mich.-based McLaren Health Care is injecting an additional $150 million into a health campus that will feature an orthopedic hospital in Lansing, Mich. The investment increases the project's total budget to $600 million, with the health system aiming to open the hospital late next year.

    The $250 million Orlando (Fla.) Health Jewett Orthopedic Hospital is set to break ground in November. Expected to open in 2023, the hospital will feature 12 large outpatient operating rooms, 66 outpatient exam rooms, up to 75 beds and an auditorium for conferences and education.

    In August, Appleton, Wis.-based ThedaCare broke ground on its $144 million Orthopedic, Spine and Pain Center. The 230,000-square-foot facility will feature medical offices, a specialty surgery center and an orthopedic and spine hospital. Construction is set for completion in summer 2022.

    The Orthopedic & Spine Tower at Huntsville (Ala.) Hospital reached its structural completion in July. The $250 million facility spans 375,000 square feet. Set to open next summer, the facility will feature 24 operating rooms, 72 patient rooms and house the hospital's program for joint replacement patients.

    The University of Rochester (N.Y.) is building a $240 million campus at the Marketplace Mall in Rochester. Dedicated to spine, orthopedic and sports medicine, the center will feature an ASC with a multistory tower above the procedure and operating rooms. The 330,000-square-foot facility is poised to open in 2023.

    Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Sanford Health is developing an orthopedic hospital and two clinics as part of a $209.5 million expansion. Located on the health system's main campus, the 163,000-square-foot hospital will have 12 operating rooms. Construction will begin next summer with an opening expected by 2023.  

    Covenant Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas, is building a six-story spine and orthopedic tower that will cost $120 million. The 220,000-square-foot center will treat spine, cranial neurosurgery and complex orthopedic trauma patients and will open by the first quarter of 2022.

    Chester County (Pa.) Hospital-Penn Medicine completed a $300 million, 250,000-square-foot expansion that enhanced orthopedic services in January. The center has 15 operating rooms, 99 private inpatient rooms and a rooftop helipad.
