The Orthopedics Department is a 48-bed unit serving adults and geriatrics with major diagnoses which include hip and knee replacements, hip pinning, spinal fusion, laminectomy (cervical and lumbar), shoulder manipulations and repair, fractures with surgery, skeletal traction, osteomyelitis, and chronic muscular skeletal pain. The Surgical/Pediatric Department provides care for patients of all ages. The most common diagnoses among the pediatric population are respiratory complications, sepsis, dehydration, gastrointestinal illnesses, surgical procedures, and acute injuries. Most of the care provided is for patients requiring general surgery, urology, gynecology, vascular, ear, nose and throat services, and cosmetic surgery.
The Oncology Department serves a patient population that is primarily geriatric with conditions that include pneumonia, diabetes, bowel obstruction, renal failure, sepsis, and altered levels of consciousness.
The unit serves an oncology population with newly diagnosed, recurrent or metastatic cancer, lymphomas, and leukemia that require chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
Representatives from all disciplines coordinate the management of patient problems and also help develop and implant components of the discharge plan.
