Summit Expands To Serve Patients With A New Eagan Location
Summit Orthopedics is pleased to announce that we will be expanding the success of our award-winning Vadnais Heights location by breaking ground in 2016 on a second comprehensive clinic and treatment center in Eagan.
At Summit, we are always looking toward the future of our community’s orthopedic needs. The success of our award-winning Vadnais Heights location has confirmed our belief in the importance of comprehensive care at a single location. As part of our commitment to expand access to excellent patient outcomes, we are pleased to announce that we will be opening a new 65,000-square-foot center in Eagan.
Our new Eagan facility, anticipated to be located at the intersection of Pilot Knob Road and 494, expands our commitment to provide comprehensive care that surrounds the patient with services in one location. We will be working in partnership with developer MSP Commercial to design and build a state-of-the-art campus that will serve as a one-stop destination for physician consultations, advanced imaging, therapy, surgery, care suites, and bracing and orthotic needs.
Like our Vadnais Heights location, our Eagan facility will be a state-of-the-art center offering patients a full continuum of orthopedic treatment, as well as operating rooms and overnight recovery in specialized “care suites” for advanced spine and total joint replacements. The suites will feature hotel-level amenities such as Wi-Fi capability, lounge seating, and concierge services, with 25 percent less cost than a hospital stay and dramatically reduced infection rates compared to traditional hospitals—a concept that is new to Minnesota.
The care suites in Eagan, like those at Vadnais Heights, will be conveniently adjacent to surgery. “Patients undergoing surgery at the Eagan facility will never stay in a hospital,” explains Summit CEO Adam Berry. “This reduces the risk of infection and the cost of orthopedic surgery, improving the overall experience for the patient. Summit’s approach is unique because patients aren’t transported to an off-site building following surgery.”
“The development of our Eagan facility is bricks and mortar,” notes Dr. Jack Drogt, president of Summit Orthopedics. “It is a very tangible example of how we are growing. With that growth comes accessibility: providing more care to more patients and extending ourselves to serve the distinct musculoskeletal needs of more members of our community. Our Eagan location will be a reflection of Summit Orthopedics’ guiding mission: to provide medical care in a high-touch, high-quality, and welcoming way that is accessible, efficient, and cost effective—with a reputation for excellence.”
“As a hip and knee specialist, an orthopedic surgeon, and the President of Summit Orthopedics, I’m dedicated to providing patients with the highest level of care available. Our expertise extends beyond orthopedic care. We’re enabling people to live the lives they love.”
