The Orthopedic Unit at Fairfield Medical Center is a beautiful 20-bed unit designed to make patients feel at home and comfortable during their stay. Thirteen private-bed rooms are dedicated to total joint replacement patients, while the remaining three semi-private rooms are available for general orthopedic surgery. The remainder of the unit is dedicated to fracture patients and other orthopedic injuries.
The home-like feel of the rooms are designed to help accelerate recovery and provide the utmost recovery. Since patients are encouraged to have a loved one or family member accompany them during their stay, each of these rooms is equipped with a television, guest seating and a pullout bed. Many amenities are offered to patients and their guests.
Orthopedic Unit Amenities
The Orthopedic Unit’s private dining area, which is designed to make patients and guests feel at home, is complete with a cozy fireplace and flat-screen TV. While all meals can be enjoyed in this private dining area, Wednesdays are special for patients and one lucky guest. On Wednesdays, Fairfield Medical Center’s very own Chef Jamie Brumbaugh, prepares a gourmet meal for total joint replacement patients and one guest at no additional cost.
Salon and massage therapy services, both located conveniently on the Orthopedic Unit, are also offered to patients during their stay. The salon offers hair washing and styling at no additional cost to patients. Massage therapy is offered in a private room by a licensed massage therapist. Massage therapy is a great way to reduce pain and inflammation, or to simply relax during your stay.
Pet therapy is also available to patients. If interested in pet therapy, have your nurse request a scheduled visit. Learn more about pet therapy.
