The Orthopedic Hospital of Lutheran Health Network is proud to receive the UnitedHealth Premium Specialty Center 3 Star Designation in recognition of quality care for both Surgical Spine and Total Joint Replacement Hospitals. The UnitedHealth Premium Designation means that our patients can depend on The Orthopedic Hospital of Lutheran Health Network for conscientious, reliable total joint replacement and surgical spine care. We are proud to be designated as a UnitedHealth Premium specialty center - an acknowledgement that we're a hospital you can choose with confidence. It is our privilege to provide quality care to the people of our community.

New Technology. Better Results.
Total joint replacements, spine operations, sports-related injuries and chronic pain are just a few of the treatment options performed and/or treated by the hospital's highly skilled and experienced physicians and staff.

Built to treat patients with orthopedic needs, The Orthopedic Hospital has 39 private inpatient rooms, as well as five private rooms at the off-campus site. To ensure a comfortable stay, our all-private patient rooms include:

  • Room service
  • Flat-panel televisions
  • Beds specially designed for patient care
  • Spacious bathrooms built for safety with roll-in showers and hand-held shower heads
  • Dedicated "family" area for visitor comfort
  • Three separate lighting zones to minimize patient discomfort

Although patients with orthopedic needs have been expertly treated at Lutheran Hospital since 1994, The Orthopedic Hospital, formerly the LMC, was founded in 2006 and was built specifically to treat patients with orthopedic needs.

Complex orthopedic surgeries that require a hospital stay and some outpatient procedures are performed at The Orthopedic Hospital on the Lutheran Hospital campus, 7952 W. Jefferson Blvd. Outpatient procedures, those that require a 23-hour or less hospital stay, are completed at the outpatient surgery center, 7601 W. Jefferson Blvd.

The Orthopedic Hospital is directly or indirectly owned by a partnership that proudly includes physician owners, including certain members of the hospital's medical staff.
