Rowan's orthopedic program one of best
SALISBURY — Rowan Regional Medical Center’s orthopedic program has been named among the best in the country.
RRMC is one of 60 hospitals nationwide named as “Hospitals with Great Orthopedic Programs,” a distinction awarded by Becker’s Hospital Review, a national publication focused on healthcare services and management.
Of the nearly 5,800 hospitals registered with the American Hospital Association, Becker’s selected 60 for consistently providing excellent orthopedic care with a high level of service, maintaining an outstanding local and national reputation and treating a high volume of orthopedic cases.
One percent of hospitals nationwide were highlighted by Becker’s.
Earlier this year, RRMC’s orthopedic program was named a Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina Blue Distinction Center for Knee and Hip Replacement for the second year. This recognition is awarded to facilities who demonstrate an expertise in quality care, resulting in better overall outcomes for patients.
“These awards reflect Rowan’s extraordinary commitment to providing the best possible care to our patients,” hospital President Dari Caldwell said in a press release. “They also highlight the high level of expertise our physicians have in diagnosing and treating orthopedic problems.”
Rowan Regional has a 17-bed unit designed for joint replacement and three separate operating rooms designated for orthopedic joint replacement procedures.
Named Joynt Camp, the orthopedic unit caters to patients by providing additional specialists, such as physical therapists, and has an open-door policy for family members.
The hospital’s surgeons have extensive orthopedic experience and subspecialize in joint replacement, shoulder care and sports medicine. They provide a continuum of treatment options from nonsurgical medical care to minimally invasive procedures for a range of orthopedic conditions.
