A new Washington University Orthopedics and Barnes-Jewish Hospital outpatient orthopedic center brings comprehensive orthopedic and sports medicine care to patients in a convenient west St. Louis County location. The center was built with the ultimate patient experience in mind – enhancing the care and comfort of patients was paramount in planning and design. The processes in place have decreased patient wait times through streamlined registration, increased staff preparation and improved appointment availability.
“At the new outpatient orthopedic center, we remain committed to our core values of providing outstanding patient care, and now we are attempting to do that in the most convenient, patient-friendly environment possible,” says Charles Goldfarb, MD, Washington University orthopedic surgeon. “Outpatients can have different needs than inpatients, and we want to be mindful of their time by providing all of the services they need under one roof.”
The services offered in the new location complement those available at the Center for Advanced Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital on the Washington University Medical Center campus, where spinal, joint replacement, trauma and orthopedic oncology services are based.
