There are 281 muscles, 206 bones and more than 400 joints in the human body, meaning that it is a very precise instrument with a lot of parts. The physicians at the Florida Hospital Orthopedic Institute are specialists, keenly trained to keep these parts fine-tuned and working as they should.
The Florida Hospital Orthopedic Institute at Winter Park Memorial Hospital specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal system disorders. Orthopedic specialists in our community collaborate with Winter Park Memorial Hospital’s multidisciplinary team of caregivers—physicians, orthopedic nurses, physical therapists, radiologists and more—to provide the absolute best care available to our patients.
Florida Hospital’s expertise in the orthopedics field dates back to 1936. Since then, we’ve been known throughout the country for our progressive medical programs and innovative approaches. Florida Hospital has treated more than 90,000 orthopedic surgical cases in the last three decades alone—more surgeries than any other hospital in the state, and the second most in the entire nation—among them the state’s first total knee replacement, a knee arthroplasty procedure and arthroscopic surgeries. For our orthopedic patients, this means that they can rest assured that they are receiving some of the most advanced care available, all within the compassionate, patient-centered environment on which Florida Hospital has staked its reputation for more than a century.
While the Florida Hospital system performs more orthopedic procedures that any other hospital in the state, Winter Park Memorial Hospital performs more total joint replacement procedures than any other Florida Hospital system. In fact, total knee replacements are our specialty—not only do we perform more of these procedures than anyone else, but our patients also have better outcomes.
Winter Park Memorial Hospital offers a dedicated orthopedic unit designed specifically to meet the needs of our orthopedic patients. This unit features semi-private rooms with in-room bathrooms, nurses specially trained in orthopedics.
We also offer dedicated orthopedic concierge that provides additional services and amenities as requested by the patient. This concierge service is available free of charge; the patient’s only responsibility is to pay for services rendered by outside companies and for items purchased. Our concierge, however, will do research and contact these companies for you. Our concierge services include: dry cleaning, personal shopping, taxi and shuttle service, salon services, restaurant takeout and delivery, area maps and directions, hotel arrangements for friends and family members, notary service, and print, copy and fax services. Our concierge office is conveniently located in the main hospital lobby near the gift shop. To arrange services, simply stop by or call us at (407) 646-7938 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Winter Park Memorial Hospital and Florida Hospital Orthopedic Institute also specialize in the treatment of athletes, from the pro to the weekend warrior. In fact, we have a track record of providing exclusive medical care to a number of Central Florida’s premier sports organizations, including the Orlando Magic, University of Central Florida Athletics, Disney’s Wide World of Sports, the Capitol One Bowl and Florida Citrus Sports; we also serve a number of local high school and community athletics programs.
Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Program
Florida Hospital Winter Park is participating in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program. The program is a new payment model being tested for episodes of care related to total knee and total hip replacements under Medicare, with the goal of supporting better and more efficient care coordination for patients undergoing the most common inpatient surgeries.
The Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model continues to pay providers under existing payment systems, but holds hospitals responsible for the quality and costs from the initial procedure through 90 days after the patient is discharged. Through the CJR program, CMS expects improved coordination of care among hospitals, physicians and post-acute care providers – from surgery to recovery –to benefit patients and result in better outcomes and fewer complications.
