About this Unit:
The Surgery Unit has 20 general surgery private rooms/suites and 18 Orthopaedic private rooms/suites where we provide services for patients who have had either elective or unplanned surgical interventions such as abdominal (i.e. colo-rectal, appendectomy, cholecystectomy), urological, vascular, ENT (thyroidectomy), gynecological (hysterectomy), joint replacements (hip, knee, shoulder), back and neck surgery. We are a knowledgeable group of approximately 33 staff, and our.team is cross-trained to care for both the elective orthopaedic/joint replacement surgeries and the general surgical patient population. We work closely with the surgeons, physical therapy and care coordination in implementing plans of care resulting in positive patient outcomes. The orthopaedic unit has received the Platinum Award for Customer Service for the past 5 years; over half of the team members have been on the team greater than 10 years - Which helps provide an experienced knowledge base for our new team members. We are focused on creating a warm, welcoming and family oriented environment for all members of our team.
