UR Medicine launches first-of-its-kind orthopedics center at Marketplace Mall

UR Medicine is opening a groundbreaking orthopedics surgical center at Marketplace Mall in Henrietta, which is the first of its kind in the area and one of the largest orthopedic campuses in the United States. The new center, which boasts a size of 14 football fields, has a price tag of approximately $130 million and is dedicated to serving patients with bone and joint problems, motion problems, and other emerging treatments.

The former Sears building in Marketplace Mall was converted into a state-of-the-art facility that offers eight operating rooms, three procedure rooms, and an imaging center that provides MRI, CT, and X-ray services. Outpatient care is available for up to 23 hours.


According to Dr. Paul Rubery, the chairman of the department of orthopedic surgery at URMC, the location is ideal for providing access to patients who rely on nearby highways and central bus stops. The facility will also be expanded in the fall with a physical therapy space that includes two therapy pools, which have wave resistance and an underwater treadmill.

Rubery expressed his excitement for the launch of the facility, which has been in the making for seven years. “This is 330,000 square feet devoted to patients who have problems with motion, patients with bone and joint problems and the various emerging treatments we have for helping people be more active and have less pain,” he said.

The orthopedics surgery center will open to patients on Monday, Feb. 20. Additionally, the patient tower, which will have 140 exam rooms, is set to be completed later this year.
