Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – The new Joint Replacement Center at Broward Health Imperial Point (BHIP), which celebrated its open house on Monday, August 26, offers patients the latest in joint replacement surgery and a spacious, comfortable room with a view in which to recuperate.

The Joint Replacement Center, located on the hospital’s fifth floor, provides seven private patient rooms which offer a great view of the local skyline, plus a group therapy/activity area where care is provided in a motivational, fun environment. Well-appointed rooms have 40” LED TVs, personal safes to store valuables, family recliners and a sitting area.

“As a hospital, you want to provide the best care for your patients, no matter what they need,” said Alice Taylor, BHIP CEO. “BHIP’s new Joint Replacement Center offers our patients the opportunity to receive high quality orthopedic care in a beautiful new facility even closer to home.”

After surgery, patients participate in group physical therapy to encourage health and wellness at the specialized center. The group works with a special multidisciplinary team to help patients recover more quickly.
