ORA Orthopedics has announced plans to relocate its Bettendorf orthopedic clinic and outpatient surgery center, currently located on 53rd Avenue, Bettendorf, to a new state-of-the-art facility. ORA is expanding its medical, outpatient surgery, and physical therapy facilities to a planned 113,000 square-foot clinic, surgery center, and administrative headquarters next to the TBK Bank Sports Complex, Competition Drive, Bettendorf.

The Bettendorf Planning and Zoning Commission has approved plans for the site. 

ORA Chief Executive Officer, Ken Brockman, says the expansion reaffirms ORA’s promise and mission to provide superior orthopedic care and physical therapy to patients in the Quad Cities’ region. “For more than 60 years, ORA has been on the forefront of orthopedics. This orthopedic campus demonstrates our commitment to support the Quad City region with a comprehensive approach to support active lifestyles.”

Brockman says the new facility will feature a 51,000 square-foot orthopedic outpatient surgical center with 10 operating rooms and 2 procedure rooms; 14,000 square-feet of physical and occupational therapy space with an aquatic therapy pool; an advanced imaging suite with MRI, CT, and Digital X-Ray; clinical offices for orthopedic surgeons with a specialized orthopedic focused walk-in Urgent OrthoCARE, as well as administrative offices to be headquartered at the new campus. The new project is expected to increase employment by an additional 150 employees. ORA currently employs 540 employees across its practice operations.  

“As leaders in sports medicine, our new location will also provide synergy with TBK’s expansion of its Bettendorf Complex in golf and other sports facilities,” said Dr. Edward Connolly, ORA orthopedic surgeon and practice President. “This next-level, best-in-class orthopedic campus will allow us to better serve our team, recreational, and professional athletes.”

“This orthopedic center will eventually replace our Bettendorf facility, but all our other clinics in Silvis, northwest Davenport, Moline, Geneseo, Dewitt, Muscatine, and Clinton will remain. We have made significant investments in those facilities for the care, convenience, and access for our patients throughout the bi-state region.

“Orthopedic medicine continues to advance in technology and treatment, and we will ensure our community has access to the most advanced orthopedic care available. More than ever before, new treatments, outpatient surgery, minimally invasive surgical techniques, regenerative therapies, and comprehensive physical and occupational therapy, work together to help patients of all ages return to the activities they enjoy.

ORA’s current Bettendorf clinic and surgery center will remain operational until the orthopedic campus is constructed. Planning for the new campus has begun and construction is expected to begin this summer. Construction is estimated to be completed in early 2026.
