An orthopedic center will be built in Southwest Florida

The NCH Healthcare System is joining forces with the Hospital for Special Surgery (New York) to open an orthopedic and surgical center near Naples in Southwest Florida.

The three-story building with a floor area of around 7,430 square meters and worth up to $70 million will accommodate both inpatient and outpatient facilities. Jonathan Kling, Chief Operations Officer at NCH (the largest non-profit hospital operator in Collier County) declared that visitors of the new center will have access to “orthopedics of the future”. Aside from joint replacement surgery and other treatments for hip, knee, and shoulder, sports injuries, and other musculoskeletal disorders, the specialized hospital will also do clinical studies, research, and educational programs.

The Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) has been ranked No. 1 orthopedic clinic in the U.S. News & World Report for 13 years in a row. It boasts the lowest rate of complications and re-admissions among all US institutions with this specialization. The infection rate here is also among the lowest. Orthopedic surgeons from HSS will start coming to Naples early next year to approve clinical practice protocols.

The construction is scheduled to begin in April – May 2023 and finish in approximately two years.

Paul Hiltz, President and Chief Executive Officer at NCH, believes that opening a new healthcare institution will enable residents of Southwest Florida to receive world-class services right where they live. This will likely increase the demand for local real estate and, consequently, its value.
