TAMPA, Fla. (September 6, 2018) – Florida Orthopaedic Institute (FOI) will open on Monday, September 10 a new, larger facility in Brandon to accommodate its growing practice. The FOI building is the anchor tenant at the Brandon Gateway Medical Plaza located at 560 S. Lakewood Drive. The 29,000 square-foot facility replaces the 13,000-square foot location on East Brandon Boulevard.
“We’re excited to expand our Brandon medical center so that we can treat patients more efficiently and maintain a level of care they have come to expect at Florida Orthopaedic Institute,” said FOI CEO Joe Gordon. “The facility will include the newest technology and treatment options so that patients can receive all of the care they need at one location,” added Gordon.
The new Brandon location will feature Orthopaedic Urgent Care, one of only two facilities offering those services in the area. With faster service and lower cost than an emergency room, Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s Urgent Care is open during both regular business hours and extended hours Monday through Saturday. No appointment is necessary, and all ages are welcome. Patients experiencing an unexpected bone, joint or muscle injury, can visit the only urgent care centers in Tampa Bay specializing in orthopedics.
Other features of the new facility include 30 exam rooms, x-ray and MRI machines. The facility will have Toshiba Medical’s new Vantage TitanTM 1.5T MRI machine, which includes the MR Theater. This state-of-the-art machine gives patients an immersive virtual experience and a visual focal point to distract them from the exam. The MR Theater encourages patients to relax and stay still, enabling clinicians to produce efficient, high-quality imaging. Patients will also be able to receive physical and occupational therapy at the new location.
Florida Orthopaedic Institute will be the primary tenant occupying more than half of the Plaza’s 53,000 square feet. FOI partnered with the developer, builder and property manager Ryan Companies US to build the center. Rojo Architecture designed the space and Collier Arnold is the real estate broker.
