University of Missouri Health Care
The primary features of the $55.5 million, 115,500-square-foot Orthopaedic Institute include:
Five large operating rooms
The new facility was the first step toward bringing the entire Department of Orthopaedic Surgery together under one roof for the first time in years. Formerly, orthopaedic clinics were housed at McHaney Hall and the University Physicians Medical Building, next to University Hospital; Columbia Regional Hospital, home of the Missouri Spine Center; the Missouri Hip and Knee Center, and the Missouri Foot and Ankle Center. The McHaney Hall clinic ran well beyond its capacity some days, with more than 150 patients and a small waiting area. In addition, the department had no research space on campus.
The institute was based on a new model for specialty facilities, focusing on providing all services related to orthopaedic care at a single location, moving patients efficiently and comfortably through the process. This “one-stop shopping” improved the continuity of care and patient satisfaction.
