The UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry Township, after a weekend of grand opening activities, opens to the public on Monday.
The 185,000 square-foot complex, with two full-size rinks, will serve as the primary training and practice facility for the Pittsburgh Penguins and as a comprehensive outpatient facility for UPMC Sports Medicine. It will also will be available to the public for regular skating sessions along with youth and adult hockey.
The center, under the guidance of medical director Dr. Vonda Wright, will offer orthopedic, physical therapy, concussion, imaging and sports-performance services.
“We are really trying to make this convenient for our patients,” Wright told the Pittsburgh Business Times. “Monday is really our big day.”
In addition to hockey players, the complex will be reaching out to some 90,000 youth football players in the region for training and injury prevention and treatment, Wright told the Times.
