Banner Community Hospital adding sports medicine and orthopedics wing

Posted: Updated:

Torrington's Banner Community Hospital has added another major construction project to the list  a sports medicine and orthopedics wing.
 
The hospital's current medical office building will be turned into an 'out-patient rehab services' and orthopedic surgery offices.

Hospital CEO Vince Difranco says there will be much more room for physical therapy and orthopedic therapy patients in the new space.

He says the new area will have a separate entrance and dedicated parking.
 
"Right now it's in the middle of the hospital," said Difranco. "And so it's easily accessible through our back entrance, our outpatient entrance. But it's land locked. So we don't have any room to expand the space they're in right now because they're in the middle of the hospital."
 
Difranco says the Rehab Services Department has grown its staff and patient list within the past five years and now needs the space to match.
