Premier Orthopedic (now known as Kruger Clinic) held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday morning for a new three-story orthopedic center planned for 72nd Avenue West, just west of McDonald’s, on Highway 99 in Edmonds. Among those attending in addition to Premier Orthopedic officials were representatives of the City of Edmonds, First Western Development Services, Pennon Construction, Whidbey Island Bank, Architectural Werks and DDG Architects.
The 27,000-square-foot clinic and physical therapy facility will include new diagnostic technology and be able to perform DXA X-rays, designed to measure bone-mineral density. The new facility is expected to open in December 2012. Until that time, physicians and staff will continue seeing patients at the current Kruger Clinic location on Highway 99
