JACKSON, Miss – Mississippi Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center and Baptist Health Systems recently began construction on a fitness facility and sports performance center in Madison, Miss.
“A partnership like this between Baptist and Mississippi Sports Medicine will create a facility offering services unlike any other offered in this market,” notes Baptist Health Systems President and CEO Mark Slyter.
The Madison Healthplex Performance Training Center will be approximately 96,000 square feet and cost approximately $16 million. Mississippi Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center will occupy clinical space in the facility and physical therapy services will also be provided. The Baptist Healthplex will include weight training and exercise rooms, plus a 6-lane indoor pool. The Mississippi Sports Medicine Sports Performance Center will offer sports specific training and strength and conditioning programs for athletes of all ages, from youth through the professional level. The facility will include indoor and outdoor synthetic surface fields.
“We at Mississippi Sports Medicine are excited about this project. This facility is unique to the state of Mississippi and supports our Community Outreach Programs,” said Mississippi Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center Administrator Robert Lodes.
The facility is expected to take approximately one year to complete. It is located just north of the Baptist Madison Medical Office Building.
