The 2 West Total Joint/Orthopedic Center officially opened for patient care on Monday, November 9, complete with private rooms and a large dedicated physical therapy gym located within the unit.

“We are excited to have a dedicated unit for the care of total joint and orthopedic patients,” said Dawn Kline, executive director of Maternal Child Health (MCH) and Patient Experience. “Our new facility encompasses state-of-the-art technology, comfortable lodging, and an advanced physical therapy gym to ensure patients heal faster – and are back to their day-to-day life much quicker.”

The opening of this new, remodeled unit comes with the recent announcement regarding the Total Joint Center at CentraState’s fourth recertification for The Joint Commission Disease Specific Certification in Total Knee and Total Hip Replacement. The Center underwent a one-day site review, where The Joint Commission evaluated the Center’s compliance with disease-specific care standards and total knee and total hip replacement requirements.

The 2 West Total Joint/Orthopedic Center team welcomed Toni Vaccarello as its clinical leader. Toni began her CentraState career as a registered nurse at The Manor Health and Rehabilitation Center in 2015, then transferring to 4E Orthopedic Unit and OR. When COVID-19 hit the community this year, Toni rejoined the 4E Orthopedic Unit as a “helping hand “ to provide life-saving assistance while advancing her role as a charge nurse from 3-11. She is enrolled in an MSN program and will be an asset to patients and staff as CentraState grows its orthopedic services.
