About our Orthopedic Destination Center

The Decision

There may come a time when your knee or hip pain reduces the quality of your life. Everyday activities, such as walking, shopping, or housework can become difficult or unbearable. Taking part in favorite hobbies such as golf or bowling may be a thing of the past because conservative measures like diet, exercise and medications no longer provide pain relief. If this describes your situation, it may be time to consider joint replacement.

Within our hospital, we have created a special area just to care for knee and hip replacement patients. No hospital gowns for this crowd – you get to wear your own clothes! And family members are encouraged to participate in group activities and other special events. New friendships are made, enhancing the healing process.

Our staff is hand-picked for their positive attitudes, motivational skills, and their desire to provide outstanding service. In addition, they have been specially trained to provide comprehensive clinical care for patients undergoing this important surgery.

The Orthopedic Care Team will be responsible for patient care needs from the surgeons’ office, to the hospital, and home. The Orthopedic Care Team will:

  • Obtain health records.
  • Review what each patient will need at home after surgery, including support if required.
  • Assess and plan for the patient’s specific care needs, such as anesthesia and medical clearance for surgery.
  • Coordinate the patient’s discharge plan to home or a facility with additional support.
  • Act as the patient’s advocate throughout the course of treatment from surgery to discharge.
  • Answer questions and coordinate the patient’s hospital care with other Orthopedic Care Team members.

We believe the key to better outcomes is a commitment to provide you with a thorough understanding and knowledge of what to expect during your surgical experience. Knowing what to expect each step of the way goes a long way to reducing stress and anxiety and preparing you for as smooth a recovery as possible.

Our Commitment to You: Excellence in Joint Replacement!

We are continuously evaluating and measuring our performance to help ensure we provide the highest quality program possible, tailored to each and every patient. Our team meets regularly with a focus on maintaining clinical and service excellence in all aspects of your joint replacement experience.
