When It Comes to Fixing Fractures, You Won’t Find Better Care Anywhere.

It can happen in an instant.

You slip. You fall. You feel something snap.

What you do next is critical. It could very well determine whether or not you’ll ever live independently again. Because fractures in older adults require special attention and swift action.

That’s why, if something breaks, make sure you receive your care at Highland Hospital’s Geriatric Fracture Center. It’s the first and only facility in the entire nation with an expert medical team and an entire program dedicated to providing both the rapid and high quality care required by older people who suffer fractures. Highland Hospital has protocols in place to ensure the best possible inpatient experience, and a complete continuum of pre- and post-operative care.

The center’s staff—an interdisciplinary team of orthopaedic surgeons, geriatricians, nurses, therapists, social workers, and other health professionals—has been specially trained in the complete management of older adults with fractures.

Older Patients with Fractures are Our First and Only Priority

In most hospitals, geriatric patients with fractures go into the regular emergency department queue, and they may not get the prompt care they need. At Highland ‘s Geriatric Fracture Center, we’ve streamlined the admissions process and get most patients into surgery in less than 24 hours, which is crucial for successful treatment.

The result? Better patient outcomes and shorter lengths of stay than in any other hospital in the area. Rapid and better care means faster recovery, less pain, and fewer complications.

The new Geriatric Fracture Center at Highland. A smart new approach to getting you in and out of the hospital—and on with an active life—as quickly as possible.
