West Tennessee Healthcare is set to open its new orthopedic center in November, the Jackson Sun reported Oct. 29.

The orthopedic center will be housed in a hospital facility the health system acquired in April 2018. Renovations created eight new operating rooms, and the center will be able to host up to 14 patients at a time.

"The number of people who need work like hip or knee replacements is growing rapidly and is a group that’s getting younger, so a facility like this is needed here," Renee Peebles, executive director of West Tennessee Healthcare, told the newspaper.

Additional features include an expansive lobby, a cafeteria and new offices.
