DOTmed: Please outline the scope of this project.
A hospital in Shelbyville, Indiana is getting an all-new reNovo Orthopaedics Center.
The reNovo Center will be home to the new FORCE (Family Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Center) surgical practice (currently located in the Rampart Building), SportWorks (located in Junction Plaza) and Major Sports Medicine (adjacent to Major Hospital on West Washington Street).
"With the Boomer generation moving into the time when orthopaedic care becomes very important, this new Center represents a good strategic move to meet the changing needs of our community," said Gene Jones, Chairman of the Major Hospital Board of Directors.
The regional need for work-related rehabilitation and high-end orthopaedic services will likely increase with the growth of the Honda plant in Greensburg, according to Horner.
"The convenient location of the reNovo Center right off the Interstate will make Major Hospital's full line of services very accessible to a broad region," said Shelbyville Mayor Scott Furgeson. "With the Center's top surgeons, physicians, and rehab professionals, there will be no need to drive to Indianapolis for service."
Designed by Ratio Architects of Indianapolis, the reNovo Center will cost about $7.2 million to complete by mid-2009. The name "reNovo" was adapted from a French noun which means "renew, revive or restore."
