All orthopedic surgical patients recover and rehabilitate in the Orthopedic Unit located on the hospital’s 5th floor.
This recently renovated unit houses 23 private rooms specifically created to meet the needs of orthopedic patients. The large rooms provide easy access for patients using walkers and wheelchairs.
The Orthopedic Unit is a ‘clean floor,’ which means that no patients with infections are permitted in this unit. This important factor prevents the spread of infection and critically assists wound healing.
The Orthopedic Surgery Center is conveniently located in the Patient Pavilion. The entrance is adjacent to the Emergency Department on the west side of the hospital.
