Realty Trust Group, a PYA affiliate, partnered with the University of Tennessee (UT) Medical Center and OrthoTennessee on the new 91,000 square foot Orthopaedic Institute that held a ribbon cutting earlier this week.
Located on the UT Research Park directly across Alcoa Highway from the Medical Center, the new building 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.
“This new facility is designed to provide comprehensive orthopaedic excellence to meet the changing needs of this community for years to come” according to Jon-David Deeson, Chief Executive Officer of OrthoTennessee. “Every part of this project was intentionally planned to improve the patient experience and reduce cost of care without compromising our commitment to provide the best care possible. The team at RTG did an outstanding job working with our design and construction partners to help bring our vision to reality. This is the only facility of its kind in the region, and we are thrilled to make this resource available to our patients.”
