Grand View Health has announced the construction of a new Orthopaedics facility to be located in Hatfield at the intersection of Rte. 309 and Broad St., adjacent to the Colmar train station. Slated to open in May of 2020, the new 12,000 square foot facility will bring together multiple orthopaedic services including sports Medicine, physical therapy and rehabilitation and diagnostic imaging under one roof. The building represents the fifth location for Upper Bucks Orthopaedics at Grand View Health practice.

“Grand View is ushering in a new era of healthcare and wellness with investments in technology, facilities and programs and this vibrant location is just one of the many forward-thinking innovations we have in development,” said President and CEO Jean Keeler, Esq. as she announced today’s groundbreaking.

Construction on the modern glass and stone structure, designed by Brawer & Hauptman Architects begins in the near future. Penn Builders has been named as the contractor for the site.

It was just 13 months ago that the physicians of Upper Bucks Orthopaedics joined Grand View Health. Paul Weidner, MD, Medical Director of Grand View’s Joint Replacement Center commented on the extraordinary pace of expansion and key milestones, “Just this week, we relocated to our new, spacious, patient-friendly offices in the Sellersville Outpatient Center. Last week, we announced our partnership with Penn Orthopaedics.” Weidner continues, “This past November, we became the first hospital in the region to offer MAKO®, robotically-assisted knee surgery, technology that enables us to be even more precise during knee-replacement surgery and we’ve strengthened our relationship with the schools in our community through sponsorship of local sports teams and athletic training.”

PA State Senator of the Twelfth district, the Honorable Marie Collett, PA State Representative, the Honorable Steve Malagari and Tom Zipfel, President of the Hatfield Township Commissioners each offered their comments and support for Grand View’s plan for expansion as they joined leadership from Grand View Health for the ceremonial “first shovel.”  Grand View’s President of the Board of Trustees, Rob Pritchard summed it up as he added, “We are fortunate to have the resources to grow with our community. Today is evidence of our health and we anticipate that this is just the beginning.”
