HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Right now construction is underway at Hartford Hospital for a new $150 million dollar addition. This construction project will add a bone and joint institute and surgical center for an all new orthopedic center.
It will include a wide variety of orthopedics including specialty care, diagnostics, rehabilitation, rheumatology, neurology, neurosurgery and pain management.
“This will be the first-of-its-kind, fully integrated institute staffed with top-ranked specialists. It will clearly differentiate Hartford Hospital as the destination for orthopedic care in New England,” said Stuart Markowitz, MD, president of Hartford Hospital. “This is a movement to completely redesign the way in which Hartford Hospital provides musculoskeletal care.”
The new construction is happening at a lot on Seymour Street and will be directly connected to the main building of Hartford Hospital. It’s expected to open in 2016.
