Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies (OCR) recently celebrated the five-year anniversary of its Greeley Office on May 16, 2021. OCR opened the Greeley Office in 2016 to help serve the growing demand for highly specialized orthopedic and spine care in Greeley, Weld County, and Eastern Colorado. For the last 50+ years, residents of Greeley, Weld County, and Eastern Colorado traveled for specialized orthopaedic and spine care at OCR’s campuses in Fort Collins and Loveland. This all changed for Greeley, Weld County, and Eastern Colorado in 2016.
“OCR Greeley has helped us keep up with increasing patient demand for highly specialized orthopaedic and spine care,” said Mike Bergerson, CEO at Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies. “We are very pleased to have significantly grown our physical presence in Greeley, Weld County, and Eastern Colorado over the past five years in order to provide requested care closer to home.”
Located at 1900 16th Street, 3rd Floor, of the Greeley Medical Clinic building, the OCR Greeley Office became OCR’s third location in 2016. Onsite services at OCR’s Greeley Office include same-day specialty physician appointments, digital x-ray, DME, ultrasound, and cast-splint-brace services. New OCR Greeley Medical Campus:
OCR recently announced the new OCR Greeley Campus. This is a significant OCR expansion in Greeley. “In 2020, OCR acquired approximately 12 acres along 20th street between 59th and 61st avenue,” said Bergerson. “The floorplan is designed to be similar to OCR Loveland campus on Highway 34, which has proven to support an excellent patient experience as well as to provide a healing and calming environment.”
The construction of the new OCR Greeley Campus will involve a series of phases that will consist of constructing a medical clinic, a physical and occupational therapy clinic, and imaging services. The future construction of an ambulatory surgery and recovery center is also part of the campus master plan. Significant work is already underway on the campus design. The opening of the new OCR Greeley Campus is expected in late 2023.
