HAMILTON, NJ – Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, one of the state's leading specialists in bone and muscle health, formally welcomed patients to their new, expanded home in Hamilton Township last week. Mayor Jeff Martin was on-hand to officially open the location and praised the medical specialist for continuing "to invest in our township, bringing their top-notch services to our residents."
Dr. Daniel Fletcher, a hand and wrist specialist at Rothman, said "the larger facility and improved patient access along with all these friendly amenities allows us to offer every orthopeedic subspecialty to this community with top-notch orthopedic services with some of the best providers in the world."
"Although Rothman is one of the largest orthopaedic practices in the country, we still focus on our personalized patient care, dedicated support to our local communities that we service in Mercer and Burlington counties," added Fletcher
Martin noted that the new location was entirely built with people from the community.
"It goes to show you their commitment to our local community especially our local labor unions. They put Hamilton people to work in the middle of a pandemic," added Martin.
The new location at 1079 Whitehorse-Mercerville Road, in space formally occupied by KMart, opened on February 1 with the orthopaedic urgent care center opening in the middle of March. The 15,000 square foot state-of-the-art space replaces the former Rothman Orthopaedic location in Mercerville, and offers a variety of convenient on-site services for patients. It also features a 3,400 square foots space dedicated to Physical Therapy, Hand Therapy and Occupational Therapy; on-site x-ray at the time of your appointment; 21 exam rooms; and onsite orthotic and bracing services fabricated by our experienced practitioners.
In addition, this location also has an Urgent Care for immediate orthopaedic medical attention without an appointment.
Rothman also provides services to athletes at all Hamilton High Schools: Steinert, Hamilton West and Nottingham as well as Trenton Catholic Academy since 1988.
Initially as Trenton Orthopaedic Group, and then merging with Rothman Orthopaedics Institute, the medical specialist have been a part of the Hamilton community for nearly 50 years. Rothman Orthopaedic physicians are not only board certified in orthopaedics, they are fellowship-trained in specific specialties.
The official grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony on April 14 also was attended by Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo, Mercer County Commissioner John Cimino, Council members Charles "Chuddy" Whalen and Rick Tighe, and other Township Officials.
