Carilion opens $32 million renovated building for new clinic in Roanoke
Carilion Clinic’s Institute for Orthopaedics and Neurosciences is open, following the $32 million renovation of a former grocery store.
Doctors began seeing patients last week. The building on Franklin Road, originally a 55,000-square-foot Ukrop’s grocery store, was completely renovated over the last two years. The facility how has 116,000 square feet with 125 patient exam rooms, nine procedure rooms and capacity for eight diagnostic imaging rooms, seven of which are operational now.
Carilion created the Institute for Orthopaedics and Neurosciences to unite two complementary disciplines to benefit education, research and patient care.
“It’s been thrilling to see the Institute for Orthopaedics and Neurosciences take shape over the past two years,” Nancy Howell Agee, Carilion Clinic President and CEO, said in a statement. “As our nation’s population ages, the need for orthopaedic and neurologic care is ever increasing. These services complement each other, and co-locating them in a single facility provides opportunities for collaboration among caregivers and convenience for our patients.”
The Institute for Orthopaedics and Neurosciences is the first institute Carilion Clinic has launched. The not-for-profit healthcare organization serves nearly 1 million people in Virginia through hospitals, outpatient specialty centers and advanced primary care practices.
