When Your Care Includes a Hospital Stay

For cases requiring overnight care like joint replacement surgery, you will stay in UConn’s John Dempsey Hospital. Our new, state-of-the-art hospital tower opened in 2016 and has dedicated space for orthopedic patients on the fifth floor. There are 28 private rooms, a specialized gym, and rehab room. The staff on the floor, including nurses, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and hospitalists, are specially trained in orthopedic care. We offer room service-type dining, free Wi-Fi, and many other services during your stay.
