Bellin Sports Medicine to Build in Titletown District
Newly announced facility will serve Packers players, community alike
Bellin Health, the official healthcare partner of the Green Bay Packers, will operate a nearly 30,000-square-foot sports medicine facility within the new Titletown District, a destination area to be created on approximately 34 acres of land immediately west of Lambeau Field.
Team officials announced details of the development today, naming its first three tenants in a highly anticipated announcement. In addition to the new Bellin facility, tenants Lodge Kohler, a hotel built and managed by the Kohler Co., and Hinterland Restaurant and Brewery will be integrated around the development’s central 10-acre public plaza.
“We are pleased to build upon our relationship with Bellin Health with the goal of having a positive impact on the quality of life in our community,” said Mark Murphy, Packers president and CEO. “Bellin is known for delivering high quality healthcare and they’ve been a fantastic partner. We’re delighted to have this clinic be one of the initial tenants in the Titletown District.”
Bellin’s Titletown District sports medicine facility will be geared toward injury prevention, performance improvement, and treatment and therapy for injuries. It will include lab, x-ray and MRI, along with sports nutrition and sports psychology services.
The clinic will be staffed by longtime Packers team physician Dr. Patrick McKenzie, as well as Dr. Jim Ebben, Dr. James Spears and other sports medicine specialists.
“The proximity of this location to the team’s facilities certainly heightens the level of convenience for Dr. McKenzie and the players needing injury evaluation and treatment,” said George Kerwin, Bellin Health president and CEO. “That being said, the most prominent aspect of our relationship with the Packers has been our shared desire to elevate the health and wellness of the community. This facility is an opportunity to share a magnificent sports medicine facility with athletes of all abilities.
“Through our alignment with the Packers, we are creating a destination for those in need of excellence in sports medicine.”
Planning for the Titletown District is underway, with a groundbreaking expected this fall and a targeted completion date of 2017 set for all initial components. The development will maximize its unique location to attract more visitors to the area, spur additional regional economic growth, offer new amenities to residents and complement the greater Green Bay area’s draw as an excellent location to live, work and play.
