New Orthopedic Unit Opens at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills
Date:1/4/2017

Florida Hospital Zephyrhills (FHZ) $2.6 million new Bone and Joint Center opened to patients on Tuesday, January 3. The 7,350 square foot orthopedic wing on the hospital’s second floor has been under construction since July.

The dedicated orthopedic wing has 15 private rooms each with a private bath that has a large, walk-in shower. Some rooms also have patient lifts or have been designed for bariatric patients, according to Rachel Blackburn, RN, MSN, ATC, Nurse Manager for FHZ’s Bone and Joint Center. Designed in a “U” shape, a physical therapy room has been strategically located on the wing for patients’ convenience and comfort, Blackburn added. The predominant color is spa blue complemented by earth tones.

“We’ve hired very qualified, engaged staff for the new Center,” Blackburn said. “They are trained in orthopedics and eager to ensure that our patients receive the world-class experience which FHZ strives to deliver each and every day. Personally, I’m excited to see this specialty of care delivered to members of our community in a beautiful environment that lends itself to optimum physical, emotional and spiritual healing.”

The Bone and Joint Center at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves. The Center is the only facility in the area to offer MAKOplasty® Partial Hip and Knee Resurfacing for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the hip and knee.

The Center’s world-class joint replacement program offers amenities such as an Orthopedic Care Coordinator to assist patients with their plan of care; a joint replacement education class to help patients prepare for surgery; and an annual joint replacement reunion celebration for patients and their coaches.
