HENRIETTA, N.Y. — The University of Rochester Medicine officially opened its new $227M orthopedics and physical performance surgery center at marketplace mall on Wednesday morning.

This is the largest off-site building project in University of Rochester history. The project was constructed in less than two years.

The new facility offers eight operating rooms, three procedure rooms, and an imaging center where you can get an MRI, CT scan, and X-rays. It offers 23-hour outpatient care and there’s more to come.

Operating rooms will include state of the art motion sensing equipment. The university’s president says there was a demand for orthopedic surgery in the area.

“This center reflects the University’s commitment to making medicine of the highest order available to everyone,” says university President, Sarah Mangelsdorf. “We’ve invested the state of the art facilities and equipment to be sure, but it’s really the quality of care that makes it state of the art.”

The second phase of the $227 million project is slated for completion by the end of this year. The project has added hundreds of construction jobs locally and increased visitors and business opportunities for Marketplace Mall.
