Orthopedic Unit



 

Orthopedic Unit Central Baptist Hospital Orthopedic Unit Central Baptist

 

Patients who undergo surgery or treatment of the spine, knee, hip or other bones or joints will benefit from our dedicated 30-bed orthopedic unit.  The section is staffed with clinicians who specialize in orthopedic care and is designed with the particular needs of orthopedic patients in mind.

With a focus on wellness, patients will be encouraged to take charge of their recovery and get moving – both in the hospital and once they go home.

Patients should select a family member or friend as a “coach” who comes with them to a surgery preparation class, then guides them through recovery. Coaches are key to encouraging patients to get moving, and continue once they return home.

Orthopedic patients are cared for by nurses specially trained in g orthopedics. Patient surveys consistently show a high level of satisfaction with the personal care and attention received.
