UCHealth plans to build a 65,000-square-foot orthopedic and sports medicine practice in Colorado Springs, Colo., The Gazette reports.

What you should know:

1. The Aurora, Colo.-based health system expected to break ground on the $26 million project Aug. 21.

2. The project will sit across from a second sports medicine center, the $61.4 million William J. Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center.

3. Both centers incorporate sports medicine and research. The UCHealth center will focus on post-graduate work, while the Hyble Center will focus on undergraduate research.

UCHealth Memorial Hospital CEO Joel Yuhas commented on his project, saying, "This is an orthopedic hospital essentially connected to an outpatient program that focuses on disease prevention and joint preservation and managing treatment for joint disease and things like that."
