Orthopedic Institute Launches New Era in Minnesota Healthcare History

Chaska, Minn. — Nov. 15, 2023 --- Ridgeview and Twin Cities Orthopedics made Minnesota healthcare history today with the opening of the much-anticipated Orthopedic Institute on Ridgeview’s Chaska Campus.

Featuring a value-based partnership between an independent practice (TCO) and health system (Ridgeview), the Orthopedic Institute is a groundbreaking achievement that required collaboration, comprehensive planning, and new construction, resulting in this first of its kind orthopedics-focused hospital expansion.

To house the Orthopedic Institute, a fifth floor was added to the Two Twelve Medical Center. Renovations also occurred on the fourth floor to further accommodate the expanded clinical and support services, for a total of 54,000 additional square feet between the two floors. 

"We take immense pride in our decades-long partnership with TCO and bringing this vision to a reality is a momentous occasion,” said Ridgeview President and CEO Mike Phelps. “We’re seizing a remarkable opportunity to work side-by-side in ways to significantly impact the current and future health care needs of our region and beyond.”

“Together, we've achieved a milestone that redefines orthopedic care in Minnesota,” TCO President Dr. Christopher Meyer said. “The Orthopedic Institute symbolizes our dedication to pushing boundaries and delivering world-class healthcare.”

“We’re also proud to announce that Ridgeview was named one of the nation’s Top 100 hospitals for Joint Replacement – in the top 10% of all hospitals – by HealthGrades®,” Phelps added. “As our orthopedic partner, TCO shares in our commitment to providing the highest quality of care with the best possible experience.”
