Joint replacement team
Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center is a leading medical center in New England. Our experienced staff is dedicated to providing excellent care to our patients and their families. Northern Light Joint Center of Excellence is comprised of a team of orthopedic surgeons, nurses, therapists, nutritionists, technicians, care managers, and rehabilitation specialists who work with you and your family to ensure you receive the very best care available to get you up and going again.
In addition to our team, there are many others whom you'll meet – registration staff, transporters, housekeepers, engineers, and volunteers, to name a few. Everyone should introduce themselves to you and what they will be doing. Our staff is dedicated to your well being and providing a healing environment.
Only you know your individual needs and expectations. We'll ask you about your priorities and what excellent care means to you during your stay. We will note these on a board in your room and we'll do our best to meet and exceed your expectations.
Your nurses will check with you daily to make sure we are meeting your expectations. We value your observations and will use them to sustain good practices and reevaluate those that are not meeting your needs. Please share any concerns or issues you have with your nurses at any time.
