The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Union Health, and the Indiana Joint Replacement Institute (IJRI) have formed a partnership that will result in the construction of an outpatient surgery center along the border of the college’s campus.

The new Innovation Grove district will include, in addition to the surgery center, a 35,000-square-foot housing space housing Rose-Hulman Ventures “as well as the Sawmill Society, a network and forum for Rose students and entrepreneurial alumni to connect.”

The surgery center itself will be 40,000 square feet and include a medical office. It will specialize in “knee and hip replacements” and “will have up to four operating rooms, 14 recovery beds, X-ray, physical therapy, and approximately 20-24 exam rooms.” Rose students will work alongside Union Health and IJRI professionals.

RHV itself is “an engineering service provider specializing in innovation stage projects that blends experienced engineers and project managers with student interns.”

This new partnership will bring together “nationally recognized leaders in undergraduate STEM education and joint replacement surgery,” allowing students to gain real-world experience in “biomedical device development.” Higher-ups across all these institutions hope that the partnership will cement Terre Haute, Indiana, as a “renowned destination for orthopedic joint replacement surgeries in the Midwest.”

EIN Presswire has the release.
