The $20 million, 63,490 square-foot building will provide orthopedics and sports medicine treatment and rehabilitation services adjacent to the Memorial Regional Medical Center Campus.

In a statement, OrthoVirginia said construction of the new facility is expected to generate an estimated 150 construction jobs in Hanover County over the next year. Completion of the building is scheduled for next December.

Once completed, orthopedic specialists in sports, hand, knee and hip, spine, pediatrics and sports medicine will be consolidated into one technologically innovative building. OrthoVirginia administrator James Perkins said the new facility will be fully digital with electronic patient files, physician records and x-rays.

“We’re very excited about this new state-of-the-art facility that offers the community and the region an extraordinary resource for orthopedic specialties and rehabilitation services, allowing patients to be conveniently treated in one location,” Perkins said.

“It’s by physicians for physicians,” Perkins added.

Perkins said his company employs approximately 500 region-wide and the Hanover location has a staff of around 40.

OrthoVirginia has maintained its Hanover location as long as Memorial Regional has been there and will be consolidating three current offices on the hospital campus into the new building. In addition to their Mechanicsville offices, OrthoVirginia has other locations on hospital campuses throughout the Richmond area and satellite offices in Prince George, Kilmarnock and Farmville.

The Lingerfelt Companies have been selected to develop OrthoVirginia’s new building and will seek LEED certification for this project’s green building design and operation. They will be working with architectural firm Price Studios, construction firm DPR Construction, and engineering firm Rummel, Klepper & Kahl as part of the team to work on this development project.
