Orthopedic Patient and Family Support
Providence Holy Cross physicians perform hundreds of orthopedic procedures each year, including joint replacement surgeries. As one of the largest hospitals serving the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys, we offer a broad range of services and procedures to help alleviate your joint pain – from mobility and exercise rehabilitation to joint replacement surgery. Because each person’s joint pain is different, we tailor treatment plans to each individual’s needs.
We understand the importance of family and friends for those who choose surgery and here are a few ways we support your comfort and their involvement :
- The surgeon will discuss your case with you and your family.
- There is a sleeper couch in each patient room, ensuring friends and family can be comfortable.
- The hospital has visiting hours from 8am – 8pm, seven days a week, so friends and family can be by your side throughout this process.
- Our chaplains are available to help assist you and your family with your emotional and spiritual journey.
Planning for Recovery
While you are recovering in the hospital after surgery, you will follow a standardized care plan that ensures coordinated nursing care, pain management and physical and occupational therapy that helps to progress your activity.
Our case managers work closely with you, your surgeon and members of your health care team to be sure you have the care you need when you are discharged from the hospital. Whether you return home to receive home health care or go to a rehabilitation center, our goal is to start you on the path toward a healthy recovery and independence.
