The Mission of The Bone and Joint Destination Center is to provide quality healthcare focused on restoring and enhancing independent lifestyles for patients with bone and join disorders.

The Bone and Joint Destination Center is a new Program that Artesia General Hospital is currently developing. We have engaged Stryker - Marshall Steele to assist with the development of our Destination Center for total knee replacements and total hip replacements.

What exactly does “Destination Center” entail? This will be a service line focused on an end-to-end system that is custom built at our hospital around our customers in need of total joint replacement.

The Bone and Joint Destination will offer a complete spectrum of joint care from diagnosis and treatment to education, surgery and recovery.

The Bone and Joint Destination Center will open in early 2015. Our Destination Center will be more than just a place for surgery and rehab it will blend the talents of healthcare givers with the needs of our patients into a state of the art system of care.
