Leaders from The University of Tennessee Medical Center, University Orthopaedic Surgeons, OrthoTennessee and Realty Trust Group gathered at UT Medical Center’s New Advanced Orthopaedic Institute on July 13 for a ribbon cutting and open house. The new freestanding orthopaedic institute is located across Alcoa Highway from UT Medical Center’s main campus at the University of Tennessee Research Park at Cherokee Farms. The facility was designed by BarberMcMurry Architects, and the Christman Company served as the general contractor.
The 91,000-square-foot facility was first announced in 2018 and construction began in October of 2020. Effective June 6, OrthoTennessee relocated the University Orthopedic Surgeons’ clinic from the main campus at UT Medical Center to the new facility. The first floor of the three-story building serves as the ambulatory surgery center, which includes five operating rooms and an advanced imaging center. The second and third floors house clinical areas, as well as research and administrative offices. The new location offers ample, convenient parking and an after-hours injury clinic for those unexpected orthopaedic emergencies.
Fourteen UOS / OrthoTennessee orthopaedic surgeons will practice at the new location and offer a broad array of clinical, imaging, diagnostic, surgical, rehabilitative care and therapy services. The facility represents an ongoing partnership by UOS, OrthoTennessee and UT Medical Center to collaboratively meet the changing medical needs of the greater community in East Tennessee.
