Ortho/Neuro is a small 14-bed unit that specializes in orthopedic and spinal surgery recovery.

Our primary population of patients are total knee replacements, total hip replacements, and spinal decompressions and fusions. Because we are highly trained in orthopedic and neurological assessments, there is also a wide variety of patients who come to us either from the Emergency Department or as a step down from the Intensive Care Unit. You can usually find a variety of stroke, trauma, hip fracture, craniotomy, and traumatic brain injury patients intermixed with post-surgical patients.

This unit offers motivated nursing staff the opportunity to work with an interdisciplinary team that is committed to maintaining high standards of quality patient and family-centered care. It has a model of healthy work culture in which we expect and maintain a respectful environment for each other as well as our patients and their families in every form of communication and all interactions. Our nursing staff gains advanced knowledge and skills in a supportive academic environment that fosters the development of critical thinking skills while understanding acute traumatic injuries, surgeries, and diagnosis that have both short- and long-term impact on the patient and the family. We are a cohesive team that prides itself in getting our community members back to living active lives.
