Joint Replacement Center First Anniversary & Open House

Community Needs

HANFORD – The community is invited to a First Anniversary and Open House on July 26 for the National Award-winning Joint Replacement Center at Adventist Medical Center – Hanford.

One year ago, the Joint Replacement Center debuted on the north end of the hospital’s second floor. It consists of 10 private rooms equipped with a commode, walker, overhead trapeze and recliner. Patients stay inside the rooms with family members until it’s time to have elective total knee or hip replacement surgery.

The focus of the center is to provide patients with an exceptional experience and reduce wait times, which in turn decreases the patient’s anxiety.

From 2013 to 2015, the hospital has received Healthgrades’ Joint Replacement Excellence Award for ranking among the top 10% in the nation. The hospital has also received the Blue Distinction Center+ Award for knee and hip replacement.

The Open House will celebrate patients’ progress and encourage others in their adventures.

Guests will enjoy refreshments, receive a tour of the center and view videos of patients’ experiences. There will even be prize drawings for a GoPro video camera, fitness band and sporting goods gift card.

The Open House is on Sunday, July 26, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Adventist Medical Center – Hanford Conference Center, 115 Mall Drive in Hanford.
