New Haven, CT -- 2011 has become a year of growth for Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists. Their new state-of-the-art Surgical Center has opened its doors in early June, making Branford their largest of 7 facilities. Branford now proudly houses a medical office, OrthoNOW Emergency and Walk-In Care, an MRI Center, Star Physical Therapy, and now a customized Surgical Center used exclusively by their group of 18 physicians.
"We had our own Surgical Center in Hamden", says CEO Glenn Elia, "but that facility housed only 2 operating rooms. We had outgrown our space and were looking to expand. Branford now has 3 operating rooms and a new Pain Management Room, thereby enhancing our ability to better treat more of our patients needs."
First Selectman of Branford, Anthony DeRos, did the honors by cutting the ribbon on June 30. There was a gathering of over 50 people who came to enjoy a tour of the new facility given by Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists' physicians and surgical center employees.
Branford's Chamber of Commerce President, Ed Lazarus says, "It's nice to know that Branford has a cutting edge surgical center located in our community. These centers are nice, not just for the patient, but for the family too. When it comes to quality care, we don't have to drive far to be spoiled." Patients will find our location convenient with easy, free parking.
