Tria plan will come before Woodbury council March 23

With several Park Nicollet and HealthPartners sites already located in Woodbury, the health provider is one step closer to bringing yet one more of its services to the community.
Plans for the new, 78,000-square-foot Tria Orthopaedic Center were reviewed and approved by the Woodbury Planning Commission at its March 7 meeting.

And providing council gives the project the go ahead, ground will be broken for the new orthopaedic center yet this spring.

The new Tria Orthopaedic Center will be located on the northeast corner of Radio Drive and Woodbury Lakes Road, in the CityPlace development. According to Woodbury Senior Planner Eric Searles, the structure will be a three floor building. The first floor will where the clinic and exam area is located, the second floor will be used for physical therapy and include a gym area for rehabilitation services, and the third floor will be where the surgical suites and pre- and post-operation space is located.

All surgeries will be day surgeries, so no overnight rooms and services are needed at this location, Searles added.

The architecture of the building will be a combination of stone and glass, which is consistent with other buildings in the CityPlace development. Plans call for 320 parking spaces around the building.

Finally, the plans also call for a pedestrian trail that will tie into the overall trail network planned in CityPlace, Searles said.

HealthPartners Vice President of Orthopaedic Services Steve Housh said the company is looking forward to bringing Tria’s services to Woodbury.

“We’re delighted to be proposing the Tria Orthopaedics Center at CityPlace, We believe this is an exceptional location, and we’re excited to bring our full scope of orthopedic services to Woodbury and the surrounding communities,” Housh said.

HealthPartners and Park Nicollet have several facilities in the area, which, in turn, means there are already more than 800 employees and team members who live in Woodbury, Housh added.

Tria Orthopaedic Center’s plans will come before the Woodbury City Council for approval at the March 23 council meeting.
