Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies Moving Its Loveland Office; Opening Dec. 7
The Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies is moving its office in Loveland to a spacious, state-of-the-art facility on East U.S. 34 on Monday, December 7, 2009.
Patients will begin having their Loveland doctor and therapy appointments with the Orthopaedic & Spine Center on that date at the new office, whose address is 3470 East 15th Street.
МВOur orthopaedic facility will offer patients from Loveland and the region orthopaedic, podiatric, and sports medicine care in a very convenient location and comfortable setting,МЁ said OCRМ_s board president, Dr. Michael Houghton.
Construction on the 37,000-square-foot building began in January and is winding up. The new building is three times the size of OCRМ_s facility at 29th Street and Ginnala Drive, which dates from 1997. OCR has sold the Ginnala Drive office to Banner Health, which will use it for Banner physician practices.
OCRМ_s new office will offer patients more physician and therapy appointments with the practiceМ_s specialists in orthopaedics, podiatry, sports medicine, and physical-occupational therapy. The new facility also includes digital X-ray services.
Up to eight OCR physicians will be able to have patient appointments at one time. OCRМ_s former building had room for five doctors to see patients at a time.
МВThe larger building will help us keep up with present and future growth in the need for orthopaedics, and allow us to offer additional specialty and therapy services to Loveland and the region,МЁ Mike Bergerson, the Orthopaedic & Spine CenterМ_s chief executive officer, said.
The new location is central to McKee Medical Center, Medical Center of the Rockies, and Skyline Surgery Center. Patients from OCRМ_s four-state service area will find easy access to the new office from the interchange at I-25 and U.S. 34.
The building sits on 7.68 acres in Boyd Lake Village, which the Orthopaedic & Spine Center purchased in July 2008 from Dando Development. The Neenan Company designed and built the project.
The new office is located:
МшAt U.S. 34 and Horstman Place, named after Dr. Jim Horstman, a former OCR physician who passed away from cancer in 2007. Patients turn off U.S. 34 onto Horstman Place to access the new building;
МшDirectly north and across U.S. 34 from Mountain View High School;
МшOne block west of U.S. 34 and Boyd Lake Avenue, and two miles west of the interchange at I-25 and U.S. 34;
OCRМ_s relocation of its Loveland office does not affect where patients have surgery in Loveland. OCR physicians and patients will continue to use McKee, MCR, and Skyline.
The Loveland office move also does not affect OCRМ_s Fort Collins facility, located at 2500 E. Prospect Road. The Fort Collins center comprises a medical clinic, surgery center, overnight recovery center, X-ray and therapy departments, and MRI scanner.
The Orthopaedic & Spine Center has 23 physicians М± 18 surgeons, a podiatrist, and four primary care sports medicine specialists. Additional doctors are scheduled to be added from 2010-2012.
