Center for Fracture Care Located at Holmes Regional Medical Center and Center for Joint Replacement Located at Viera Hospital

Health First is pleased to announce the opening of a new Center for Fracture Care at Health First Holmes Regional Medical Center and the Center for Joint Replacement at Health First Viera Hospital. Both of the Centers will open July 16.

Center for Fracture Care at Health First Holmes Regional Medical Center:

The new Center for Fracture Care at Health First Holmes Regional Medical Center, located on the 6th floor, will help prioritize specialty care for people who experience fractures. The Center’s surgeons, physicians, PAs, nurses and therapists all work together to maximize outcomes. The Center is located on the orthopedic floor which has 47 beds—6 of which are solely dedicated to fractures. This is the only fracture center in Brevard County.

“The Center for Fracture Care at Health First Holmes represents a significant step forward in the care of injured patients here in Brevard County, especially our growing elderly patient population,” said Health First Medical Group fellowship-trained orthopedic traumatologist Dr. Daniel Segina. "Our goal is to prioritize the patient's orthopedic fracture repair. We can then provide early initiation of physical and occupational therapy. This allows for quicker functional return and improved patient outcomes."

Center for Joint Replacement at Health First Viera Hospital:

The new Center for Joint Replacement at Health First Viera Hospital, located on the 4th floor, includes a comprehensive program to educate, assist and support patients having joint replacement surgery (which includes hips, knees and shoulders). This includes classes prior to surgery so patients know exactly what to expect before, during and after joint replacement surgery. Specially trained staff members work exclusively in the unit. The Center is 17,714 square-feet and includes a 10-bed orthopedic unit (with the capability to expand to 20 beds), dedicated to high quality, compassionate care in a safe, healing environment.

“The goal of the program is to give patients the knowledge and tools to make the transition from hospital to home as smooth as possible.” said Health First Medical Group fellowship-trained orthopedic total joint specialist Dr. Kenneth Sands. “This new program has a customer service and ‘wellness’ focus.”

The Center for Joint Replacement is also located at Health First Palm Bay Hospital, which opened in 2011.
