SALEM, Ohio — Salem Regional Medical Center opened its new Orthopaedic Bone & Joint Center on its first floor Monday. Services provided will be performed to outpatients and not require an overnight hospital stay.

The new units will support the growing number of outpatients who need specialized orthopaedic services and will offer a setting that provides them with a more efficient way to see their doctors or have procedures done.

The center offers a new way of providing bone and joint care through treatment used by orthopaedic surgeons affiliated with the hospital medical staff.

It has six patient exam rooms, a dividable procedure room that includes high-definition monitors to view digital X-ray images, a digital X-ray suite and offices and additional support areas.

On Oct. 12, the areas devoted to outpatient procedures will relocate from the ground floor to the new first-floor outpatient area.

The Outpatient & Pain Clinic Procedures area has two rooms furnished with special equipment and lighting for minor surgeries and other procedures, four treatment/recovery rooms, and a multi-purpose treatment room.

Expansion of the hospital Cancer and Infusion Center is nearing completion and on target to begin serving patients Oct. 12.

The public is invited to preview the new oncology unit during an open house and ribbon-cutting from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Oct. 4. The Orthopaedic Bone & Joint Center and the Outpatient Procedures department will also be open for tours.
