Hip & Knee Replacement

To protect our patients and staff, all people entering a BCH care facility will be required to wear a mask (exceptions include children <2 yrs. old or medical reasons such as trouble breathing, unconsciousness, or someone unable to remove a mask without assistance).
*Bandanas, neck gaiters, and masks with valves are not acceptable.

Thanks to our community's compliance with public health and safety recommendations, we are able to reopen many of the services we offer at BCH. It is safe to come to BCH for your health care needs.
