Project Highlights

The recently constructed Ambulatory Orthopaedics Center for UR Medicine is housed in the former Sears at The Marketplace Mall in Henrietta, NY. The 330,000 SF, $180M facility is the University of Rochester Medical Center’s largest offsite building. The new building is a four-story 160,000 SF clinic building with exam, imaging, conference and office spaces. Existing space was renovated for cutting edge healthcare and patient experience. This space contains ambulatory surgery, pre-op. post-op, teaching, advanced imaging, central sterile, orthopaedic therapy and Center for Human Athleticism and Muskuloskeletal Performance and Prevention (CHAMPP) center spaces.

Utilizing a central location near many amenities is a benefit for the center’s clients. The site with new and existing space provides an economical and fast paced method of delivering the project to market.
