OrthoIndy News

The corner of Cumberland Avenue and U.S. 231 in West Lafayette was abuzz with activity as shovelfuls of dirt flew, with leaders and staff from Franciscan Health and OrthoIndy breaking ground for the new 44,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Franciscan OrthoIndy Surgery Center.

The new facility will feature an orthopedic clinic and surgery center as well as provide orthopedic urgent care, physical therapy and imaging services.  

The Franciscan OrthoIndy Surgery Center will be located next to Cason Family Park. Expected completion of the project is 2025, with construction management company, Tonn and Blank, headquartered in Michigan City, Ind., overseeing the project.  

“We are excited to begin construction on the clinic and surgery center,” said John Ryan, CEO, OrthoIndy. “This new facility will be a true one-stop location, fulfilling virtually every orthopedic care need including orthopedic-only urgent care.”

Specialties served at the Franciscan OrthoIndy Surgery Center, include: total joint replacement, hand and upper extremity, sports medicine, shoulder, arthroscopy, general orthopedics and foot and lower extremity.

Franciscan Health and OrthoIndy share the same mission to deliver the highest level of orthopedic care for Indiana patients and families. OrthoIndy surgeons specialize in a variety of conditions and injuries and bring with them the distinction of being #1 in the state for total joint replacement by Healthgrades for the second year in a row.

Franciscan Health has been a fixture in Greater Lafayette for 148 years with campuses delivering award-winning care across multiple services.

“Breaking ground was the first step in the process to bring this great collaboration between Franciscan Health and OrthoIndy to life,” said Terry Wilson, Franciscan Health Western Indiana president and CEO. “We have formed a tremendous partnership with the singular focus of providing best-in-class services and care in a state-of-the-art facility.”

OrthoIndy surgeons who will be available at the new Franciscan OrthoIndy Surgery Center, will include: Drs. John Bauman, Michael Cross, Daniel Daluga, Michael Highhouse, Mark Page, Troy Roberson, Paul Rodenhouse, Richard Rosales, Jonathan Shook, Peter Torok and Joel Virkler. They will continue to see patients out of the 1411 S. Creasy Lane clinic until the new facility opens.
