Leading the way is a center for world-class orthopedic care, part of a long-term partnership with Rothman Orthopaedic Institute. Rothman is an internationally recognized leader in high-quality orthopedic research, treatment and associated services.
Rothman’s Orlando headquarters will be based out of a 12-story, 300,000-square-foot building AdventHealth will build adjacent to Interstate 4 at Rollins Street and Dade Avenue.
Rothman Orthopaedics will begin seeing patients in the greater Orlando area in late 2020. As believers in community care, Rothman intends to launch in Central Florida with multiple locations in the suburban areas of Orlando.
“We are making a major investment to bring more health care services to Central Florida, while building a connected, innovative system that is designed around the consumer’s needs,” said Daryl Tol, president and CEO of AdventHealth’s Central Florida Division. “Rothman Orthopaedics is a world leader, and together with the AdventHealth Orthopedic Institute we are building a team to pursue a big idea and bright future.”
For Rothman, AdventHealth was a natural fit for growth.
“After observing the evolution of the health-care sector, we decided that now was the right time to expand outside of our core market and partner with AdventHealth,” said Dr. Alexander R. Vaccaro, president of Rothman Orthopaedic Institute. “As a health care leader and innovator, we are excited to share the same vision of bringing high-quality orthopedic care to the communities we serve. We look forward to working alongside AdventHealth and continuing to bolster our world-class service offerings and resources.”
Headquartered in Philadelphia, Rothman has almost 40 offices in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. Clinical teams at Rothman, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2020, focus on sub-specialized orthopedic care including sports medicine; joint replacement; spine; shoulder & elbow; foot & ankle; hand & wrist; orthopedic oncology, trauma and fracture; and physical medicine and rehabilitation. Rothman Orthopaedics has repeatedly been ranked as one of the nation’s best orthopedic providers, thanks to its superior and affordable care.
“This is a major step outside of our traditional geographic footprint,” said Mike West, CEO of Rothman Orthopaedic Institute. “We have always believed in bringing care to where the patients are, and we can’t wait to bring that same passion for excellence that makes us the preferred providers among referring physicians and professional athletes, to Central Florida.”
Rothman Orthopaedics are the official team physicians for the Philadelphia Eagles, Phillies, 76ers, and the iconic Radio City Rockettes, as well as over 40 college and high school teams. Rothman Orthopaedics evaluates more than 300,000 patients and performs 65,000 surgeries each year.
The tower that will house Rothman’s operations will also include space for neuroscience, imaging, rehabilitation and research.
The building and expanded services are a major step forward in the evolution of the 172-acre Health Village campus. Health Village — the home of AdventHealth Orlando, AdventHealth for Women and AdventHealth for Children — also includes centers of innovation and medical research, as well as residential, retail, dining and lodging options.
The project will include a 10-story, 1,600-space parking garage. The new tower is expected to open in late 2022.
