Total Joints
GROWTH FACTOR Leading orthopedic practices are building new facilities or expanding existing spaces in response to consistently high demand for total joints.

Coastal Orthopedics in West Bradenton, Fla., recently opened an 88,000-square-foot headquarters that houses a 25,000-square-foot, six-OR ASC on the second floor with 25 pre- and post-op bays and six extended stay rooms. The ORs are between 400 and 450 square feet, plenty big enough for the robotic platforms that the facility added for the total joint procedures the surgeons perform.

The busy orthopedic practice performed more than 6,700 cases last year and anticipates topping the 7,000 mark this year. Case volumes in spine, total joints and pain management are all increasing. “We’ve been in desperate need of additional space,” says Jodi Santini, RN, BSN, CNOR, CASC, the ASC director at Coastal Orthopedics. “Our practice ran two smaller ASCs before we built this facility, and we were bursting at the seams.”
