The Orthopedic/Trauma Acute Care unit, 5 Bedtower, is a 28-bed unit and we excel at putting broken bodies back together again and making them work like new.

It is an incredibly exciting place to work and to grow; full of challenges as well as the opportunity to work with the best and the brightest. Our unit is an integral component of a leading trauma program.


As an interprofessional patient care team, our physicians are true partners in nursing practice. Physical therapists, social workers, nutritionists, and a myriad of other specialties are also integral members of our team. Together, we create a synergy that is palpable and powerful. This is an environment where learning can flourish and your competence and confidence as a nurse will soar to new heights. We strive for excellence in all things - our patients deserve it and our team expects it!
