Back On Track Program

Back on Track_ full track blue.jpgThe Back On Track Program at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center's Joint Replacement Center offers you the opportunity to recover after surgery in a unit dedicated specifically to elective joint replacement patients.

The Back On Track Program promotes a culture of wellness and an early return to mobility. This is achieved in a number of ways, including:

  • You will be able to wear your own clothing after your surgery rather than a hospital gown.
  • You will generally spend most of your day in a recliner chair, walking in the halls or in group physical therapy, rather than in your hospital bed.
  • You will receive a daily newsletter with your breakfast to share the expectations for the day's activities.
  • Your group physical therapy sessions promote camaraderie, friendly competition and improved outcomes.
  • Your progress walking around the unit will be tracked on a large display board located in the Joint Replacement Center.
  • You and your coach will have a group discharge class to ensure you are prepared to go home.
  • You will have the opportunity to meet with other Back on Track patients and share your experience at bi-monthly luncheons.

The emphasis on group activities, as well as individualized care, speeds your recovery time and improves long-term outcomes.
