Altru Advanced Orthopedics opens new 14,200 square foot location
Grand Forks, ND – Altru Advanced Orthopedics has opened its new location at Altru Professional Center on August 31. The new space includes seven cast bays, two x-ray rooms and 24 exam rooms. This move brings orthopedic care to one south-end campus location. Further, orthopedic procedures are located in the adjacent building at Altru Specialty Center.
The space offers a new experience for our area, with an innovative self-rooming process available to patients. At check-in, patients are given a badge to wear during their visit along with a room assignment. Providers and nurses are able to monitor all patient locations and wait times through their badges on multiple digital screens in private staff areas. The goal of this new process is efficiency and reduced wait times for patients.
Altru’s orthopedics team has also brought advanced procedures to the region. Some include: anterior approach to hip replacement, cartilage restoration, and arthroscopic superior capsular reconstruction. Offering these procedures at the adjacent Altru Specialty Center, Altru’s local specialized orthopedic hospital, reduces the need for travel to other hospitals for expert level care. Further, Altru Advanced Orthopedics offers elite training and injury prevention through a partnership with EXOS, a world-renowned athletic training and human performance institute. Sports Advantaged powered by EXOS will open it’s new 5,000 square foot space on the main floor of Altru Professional Center in late September.
