As part of the growth of its specialized services, Orthopaedic Associates combined a branch office with a sports medicine and training center. Patients can move from treatment to recovery to athletic training in one facility.
PDT recycled a deteriorating warehouse, retaining the intact structural system and dividing the spaces into orthopaedic services, physical therapy, a hockey rink, and a center for performance evaluation and testing staffed by the University of New England’s School of Medicine. There are also waiting areas and a retail store.
A few years later the Michael Phelps Skill Center was added to the complex, with a swim school for all levels, from beginners to competitive swimmers through triathletes. Swimmers train in ergonomic spa pools with adjustable current and video monitoring for coaching sessions.
