QUEEN CREEK, Arizona -- Banner Ironwood Medical Center, in partnership with Banner CORE Center for Orthopedics, recently celebrated the opening of a dedicated rehabilitation space for orthopedic patients.
The new area, located on the third floor of the hospital, offers a physical therapy hub which is centrally located and designed to improve coordination of care and communication between health care teams. The space design repositions nursing staff immediately outside of patient rooms, where they can anticipate their needs and work closely with patients and their families. The hub also allows patients to better convene and provide encouragement for one another.
Equipment in the area includes parallel bars, a therapy table, stairs and a safety ramp.
Banner Ironwood Medical Center provides patient care to the San Tan Valley and Queen Creek communities, including emergency services, intensive care, surgery, obstetrics and medical imaging. Banner Ironwood is part of Banner Health, and represents a significant long-term investment in medical excellence for the East Valley. For more information, visit www.BannerHealth.com/Ironwood.
