Spectrum Health breaks ground on new Orthopedic Health and Performance Center
The project is set to host an array of care initiatives, including an ambulatory surgery center, physical and occupational therapy, performance training spaces and orthopedic urgent care.
BHSH Spectrum Health West Michigan broke ground on its state-of-the-art Orthopedic Health & Performance Center on Tuesday. The 117,000 square foot building and adjacent grounds will be home to advance orthopedic care, include an ambulatory surgery center, physical and occupational therapy, performance training spaces, and orthopedic urgent care.
“This facility will be the culmination of years of planning across all of our orthopedic disciplines, including joint care, trauma and sports medicine,” said Spectrum Health West Michigan President Darryl Elmouchi, MD. “We already provide excellent orthopedic care and now we will have facilities to match, all in one convenient location.”
Located at 2770 East Beltline Ave. NE in Grand Rapids Township, the Orthopedic Health & Performance Center will include:
- BHSH System’s first free-standing ambulatory surgery center (ASC), a joint venture with Arizona-based Atlas Healthcare Partners and orthopedic surgeons to deliver outpatient orthopedic surgical care in a convenient and cost-effective setting.
- Patient access to more than 60 orthopedic specialists, imaging capabilities, image-guided treatment and an orthopedic urgent care center.
- An indoor training area, basketball court, turf areas and a motion analysis lab so athletes can move beyond physical rehabilitation to individual and team training and improvement with a focus on injury prevention.
- Technology driven programming to help athletes of all ages perform at their peak and prevent injury.
- Research and education for the next generation of orthopedic providers.
“This will be a special place of healing and mobility. In addition to treating injuries and disease, we will focus on prevention and performance optimization. Our goal will be to help people function at their very best. We are excited to offer this incredible resource to meet the needs of the community,” said Jason Slaikeu, MD, vice president and department chief for orthopedic health, Spectrum Health West Michigan.
The facility was designed by HKS Architecture and Hammes Company and will be built by Whiting Turner Construction. The center is supported by the Grand Rapids Township Board and Grand Rapids Township Planning Commission. It is expected to open in 2024.
