Adena Health System will construct a five-story Orthopedic and Robotics Center on their main campus located in Chillicothe, Ohio. The new center will meet the needs of their rapidly growing orthopedic service line and robotics surgery program, and help to make them a destination center for care in the region.  Patients arriving at the new center will notice a deliberate focus on hospitality and a concierge service atmosphere.  Overnight patient rooms will be designed with a modern aesthetic that fosters a calm, healing atmosphere. The project also includes a new 300-space parking structure for added convenience.

Construction is expected to begin later this year, with the new center opening in 2021.
