While Methodist Hospital currently offers a full range of high quality surgical orthopedic services, the new Joint & Spine Pavilion will further enhance the hospital’s orthopedic care, which includes total joint replacement, spine surgery, fracture care, and physical rehabilitation. The Pavilion features 24 patient care beds and will open to patients on Monday, April 30.
