The centerpiece of the expansion is The Christ Hospital Orthopaedic and Spine Center, a facility unique to the region and dedicated to comprehensive, evidence-based orthopaedic and spine care, education and clinical outcomes research.

Upon completion in 2015, the Center will include 60 private inpatient rooms, space for 12 operating rooms and a wide range of services needed to diagnose and treat orthopaedic and spine conditions.
