INNOVATIVE NEW ORTHOPEDIC WALK-IN URGENT CARE FACILITY TO OPEN FOR ST. PETERS CONSUMERS IN AUGUST 2022
Jim P. Kidd, CMPE
ST. PETERS, MO (June 28, 2022) – Advanced Bone & Joint, a comprehensive, 3-location, full-service orthopedic medical practice that began in St. Charles County over 40 years ago, has announced that it will be opening a larger new, state-of-the-art facility in St. Peters on August 1, 2022.
The spectrum of orthopedic care needs for St. Peters residents can include recreational sports injuries, geriatric bone and/or joint issues, and work-related musculoskeletal injuries, among a host of other conditions that fall under the umbrella of orthopedics.
The new “one-stop-shop” location will feature orthopedic urgent care, diagnostic imaging (including ultrasound, CT, MRI and more), outpatient surgery, partnered physical therapy/rehab, and traditional office visits, among other orthopedic care services, with 45,000 sq. ft. of office, examination, diagnostic, and treatment space in the new building.
The new St. Peters facility is located just northeast of St. Peters’ City Centre Park, at 5200 Executive Centre Parkway, east of St. Peters Centre Blvd., and south of the I-70/Missouri Route 370 interchange, just two blocks northwest of the previous location.
“As we have offered for years, this new facility will provide St. Peters area consumers with a time and money-saving alternative to hospital emergency rooms,” explained Jim Kidd, CMPE, the CEO of Advanced Bone & Joint, “eliminating the hospital ER hassle when the patient would likely be referred to an orthopedic practice (such as ours) anyway. Our new St. Peters facility will help eliminate that entire step by continuing to offer our orthopedic urgent care services for patients to see us without an appointment.”
Dr. Dane Glueck, MD, orthopedic surgeon and the President of Advanced Bone & Joint, notes that “We’ve been continuing to add services, locations, and capabilities in orthopedics-related medicine for consumers in St. Charles County for several years now. With the Grand Opening of our new cutting-edge facility in St. Peters, highlighted by our walk-in Orthopedic urgent care, we’re gratified to continue earning the trust of residents in St. Charles County (and beyond) as their resource for all musculoskeletal health needs,” Dr. Glueck added.

Kidd observed that “We all know that professional medical services delivery is changing rapidly and very noticeably; consumers in recent years have become much more accustomed to ‘retail,’ walk-in medical services beyond normal doctors’ office business hours, and have found this to be a convenient alternative to hospital ER waiting rooms or other choices,” he said, citing the proliferation of “retail” medical care offerings now familiar in virtually every community (urgent care centers in retail strip malls, online Telehealth, and so on, which have mushroomed even more since the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic two years ago in early 2020).
“We’re bringing this same level of accelerated medical service to the orthopedics field,” Kidd explained; “We see our orthopedic walk-in urgent care as an ideal time-saving convenience for St. Charles county consumers that is in step with current consumer expectations and needs.”
Kidd summarized that “the new St. Peters facility will enable us to further serve our goals of providing our guests with what we think sets us apart – we strive to be not just a care provider, but an experience provider – as captured in our mission of ‘CCI’: We’re committed to making every guest feel Comfortable, Confident, and Important.”
