As the region’s population ages, the need for orthopaedic, neurology and neurosurgical care will increase. Preparing for this need by developing a comprehensive orthopaedic and neurosciences outpatient center will ensure that patients have access to care in the most convenient and cost-effective environment.
Pending approval, the center will be located in the former Ivy Market facility, a retail development at the intersection of Franklin Road and Wonju Street that opened in June, 2007. The 65,000 square-foot building has been vacant for more than four years.
Carilion Clinic will renovate the property into a neuro-musculoskeletal center specializing in neurosciences (neurology, stroke, and neurosurgery), orthopaedics, spine surgery, physical medicine, rehabilitation therapies, diagnostics and pain management. The need for these services is expanding, and additional space is required meet the needs of our patients. These services complement each other, and co-locating them in a single facility will provide opportunities for collaboration among caregivers and convenience for patients.
