Center for Joint Health
Excellence in hip and knee care
Community Hospitals North and East are two of six hospitals in Indiana certified in total hip and total knee replacement by The Joint Commission, demonstrating our continued commitment to providing safe, high-quality joint care and treatment.
The Center for Joint Health in Indianapolis, Indiana, is a dedicated unit for hip and knee joint replacement patients that focuses on the entire patient experience. The goal is to help patients get back to doing the things they enjoyed before being sidelined by joint pain.
Patients admitted to the Center for Joint Health unit are healthy, but have knee pain or hip pain. These patients are motivated to participate in their recovery and get back to an active life, free of pain. The Center for Joint Health allows patients to work together and support each other as they build strength, mobility, and a better quality of life.
