On May 17th, Westview Health Care Center hosted its next in a series of informative health education programs for members of the community entitled, "The Joint Academy Experience," presented by the board certified, fellowship trained surgeons and health care professionals from The Center For Bone and Joint Care.
The orthopedic team from The Center For Bone and Joint Care provided valuable information regarding their partnership with Day Kimball Hospital in creating The Joint Academy of Northeast Connecticut, a program designed to inform and educate patients about the many steps to achieving successful orthopedic surgeries.
Over 40 attendees received additional in-depth information on a variety of topics, which included Total Joint Replacement, Orthopedic Surgery, Fracture Care, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
"The mission of our program and services is to provide the highest quality of orthopedic surgical care to the residents of northeastern Connecticut," stated Practice Manager for The Center For Bone and Joint Care Donald St. Onge. "I am proud to collaborate with Westview to offer this important educational program because it provides another opportunity for our practice to talk about this successful, well orchestrated orthopedic program that is right in our backyard."
"Westview is planning additional educational forums on a variety of topics including pain management; heart health, diabetes, arthritis and others," stated Westview Administrator David T. Panteleakos. "We are excited to provide the people of our community with these opportunities to learn more about very important topics related to good health and getting well."
