BELFAST — Waldo County General Hospital celebrates the completion of its Orthopedics and Sports Medicine expansion project, welcoming patients in the fully renovated space March 8.

The construction project, which began in mid-July, more than doubled the size of the practice from around 1,400 square feet to nearly 3,000 square feet, increasing the number of patient rooms from three to eight.

Renovations also included the addition of new provider offices, an ADA-approved bathroom, a larger waiting area and hallway access for the procedure room, which improves access for patients who are being transported from within the hospital.

“We are excited to be able to expand into the new space. This has been in the works for a number of years, and the team’s positivity, patience, vision and hard work have really paid off,” said Matt Hill, Orthopedics & Sports Medicine practice manager. “We are looking forward to growing into the new space and taking advantage of the opportunity to serve the community.”

WCGH Orthopedics and Sports Medicine is located on the main floor of the hospital’s Ludwig Building. To learn more about Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, call 505-4398 or visit wcgh.org.
