The Center for Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics LLC has begun building one of the region’s biggest outpatient ambulatory surgery facilities along Interstate 75 in Tyner to expand and replace the center’s existing surgery suites in downtown Chattanooga.

The $18.7 million complex at Tyner and Walker roads is projected to open in summer 2023 with eight operating rooms, two procedure rooms and 40 pre-operative and recovery bays. The new, 37,500-square-foot complex will replace the smaller, existing surgery center that the Center for Sports Medicine now operates at the corner of Holtzclaw Avenue and Third Street.

The outpatient surgery center is being erected on 4.3 acres now being cleared for the new ambulatory surgery center, which will replace the practice’s current surgery center downtown. Once built, the new ambulatory surgery center is expected to have about 75-80 workers and be able to accommodate all 21 physicians in the Center for Sports Medicine practice.
