Glastonbury, CT – Gilbane Building Company recently joined state and local officials and representatives from Hartford HealthCare and Hartford Hospital to celebrate the ribbon cutting for the new Bone & Joint Institute.
New England’s only orthopedic specialty hospital, the new Bone & Joint Institute features two distinct parts and was collaboratively designed by Perkins+Will and HDR Architecture.
Gilbane served as construction manager for the new 130,000sf Bone & Joint Institute featuring an inpatient building with 48 private inpatient rooms, with capacity to expand to 60; eight operating rooms; outpatient rehabilitation and wellness areas; and easy access to diagnostic and other services.
Connected via a skywalk is an outpatient surgery center and medical facility with three outpatient surgery rooms; offices for orthopedics, rheumatology, and musculoskeletal specialty care; and an auditorium for conferences that can double as a classroom with live surgical procedures and learning opportunities for staff.
Founded in 1854, Hartford Hospital is one of the largest teaching hospitals and tertiary care centers in New England.
“The completion of this project marks history in the delivery of world class healthcare right here in Connecticut,” noted Bimal Patel, president, East Region HHC, Backus & Windham Hospitals, SVP Hartford Healthcare. “It has been a privilege to be a part of this project and collaborate with Gilbane as our construction manager. Thank you to the full project team, local trade contractors and every individual who participated in this project and shared our vision of building a center of excellence in caring for our patients and community.”
