Orthopedic Associates of Hartford (OAH), which operates surgical centers in Hartford, Glastonbury and Southington, has announced plans to replace its Rocky Hill surgery center with a new $30 million facility there.

OAH said it's currently constructing the 45,000-square-foot surgery center at 150 Enterprise Dr. with an expected completion date in early January. The facility will replace its 15-year-old surgical center at 1111 Cromwell Ave.

Dr. Pietro A. Memmo, the center's co-owner, assistant director and project manager, said the new center will be 40 percent larger than its existing facility. The facility, housing 600 square feet of operating rooms, will be equipped to manage over 100 cases per day and up to 15,000 cases annually.

The center will feature 25-plus rooms, including seven operating rooms, one procedure room and a full-service physical therapy center.

Memmo says patients prefer the convenience of outpatient venues because they are more cost-effective.

Surgeons at the facility will perform a variety of procedures including shoulder, knee and hip replacements, spine surgery, shoulder and knee arthroscopy, and hand, wrist elbow, foot and ankle surgery.

Several physicians who staff Hartford HealthCare's new Bone & Joint Institute are part of OAH. Meantime, a group of OAH surgeons perform procedures at St. Francis Hospital's Connecticut Joint Replacement Institute.
