Ambulatory Care

 The goal of this unit is to provide quality clinical care to patients who require the services in the specialties of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Neurology. The care of these patients is a collaborative effort involving the Registered Nurse, Patient Care Technician, Orthopedic Resident, Attending Physicians and ancillary staff (ie: Social Services ,OT/PT). The Nurse Manager over sees care on the unit. The plan of care is mutually determined with participation of patients and their families whenever possible to help achieve positive patient outcomes. We utilize an Electronic Medical Record system (EPIC).
