WellStar Health System continues to expand medical services with a new pediatric orthopedic services program. On November 5, WellStar Windy Hill Hospital launched its pediatric orthopedic services. The new program offers pediatric orthopedic surgery to patients from birth to age 21.
At WellStar Windy Hill Hospital, families will be provided a room in the pre/post-op area for the duration of the patientâ€™s stay, allowing providers to easily and quickly provide procedure and progress updates.
“Pediatric Orthopedics at Windy Hill reflects our commitment to serve children with excellence close to home,â€ said Avril Beckford, M.D., chief pediatrics officer for WellStar Health System. â€œPart of this strategy is to collaborate with those who place the needs of the child in the context of the family at the very center of all we do. Our new facility is an extension of the services offered at our new, state-of-the-art WellStar Pediatric Center.”
WellStar has partnered with Pediatric Orthopaedic Associates, whose surgeons will perform the procedures. Anesthesia will be administered by fellowship-trained providers with WellStar Medical Group, Pediatric Anesthesia. Patient care will be provided by the team at WellStar Windy Hill Hospital.
