On Tuesday, MedStar Health announced opening of its innovative orthopedic center in Lutherville-Timonium. The 46,000-square-foot facility will house various specialties to provide patients with more convenient, comprehensive care, while allowing physicians to consult with other specialists easier.
The new center will offer a variety of medical services, including spine, physical therapy, orthopedics, sports medicine, outpatient surgery, rehabilitation and pain management.
An on-site ambulatory surgery center will offer hip and knee replacement, as well as other surgeries. As part of a consolidation of services provided by Union Memorial Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, Harbor Hospital and Franklin Square Hospital, 26 physicians will be housed in the new building.
The center at 2118 Greenspring Drive in Timonium is an example of how health care institutes across the country are moving more care out of hospitals to reduce costs.
