A focus on you

There are few health care decisions more personal than choosing a hospital for your surgery. You want a hospital that is recognized for excellence with experienced surgeons, compassionate caregivers, and the support services necessary to get you back to your best self.

When it comes to surgery, there is a reason so many Rhode Islanders make Fatima their hospital of choice. Our operating suites are home to the latest laparoscopic and video instrumentation, allowing our surgeons to operate in the most efficient and accurate way with minimal incisions.  Our surgeons are among the best known and most respected in the state. Our nursing, recovery and support staff are highly trained experts on personalized care. If you require a hospital stay while recovering from surgery, Fatima is home to a dedicated post-surgical unit known as Care One, which includes 15 larger private rooms. And under our roof, we have the Southern New England Rehabilitation Center, one of the best providers of rehabilitative care in our region.

Our philosophy includes a focus on caring for you before, during and after your surgery. This starts with some of the area’s finest surgical talent who utilize advanced techniques and technologies so you have the best outcome possible. Fatima’s surgery team is trained and prepared to deliver a variety of surgical care, from minimally invasive outpatient procedures to complex neurosurgery. When you choose Fatima for surgery, you will find a team focused on making your surgery a success.

A history of surgical excellence

Fatima has a history of firsts in surgery and excellence in care. In 2011, Fatima Hospital was the first hospital in Rhode Island to receive disease-specific certifications from the Joint Commission for its hip and knee replacement programs. In 2013, Fatima was designated as a Blue Distinction Center for Spine Surgery by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island for demonstrating better overall quality of care and patient results in this specialty.

If you need to stay in the hospital following surgery, our Care One unit is designed to help you recover more quickly. More than 80 percent of Care One nurses have received their Orthopaedic Nursing Certification, which recognized an advanced level of knowledge and practice in orthopedic nursing.

Our affiliate Southern New England Rehabilitation Center is located in our hospital, which gives you easy access to the highest level of rehabilitation services including those needed following orthopaedic surgeries like knee and hip replacement.

All of this happens in an environment where surgical patients are at the forefront of every decision made and you can understand why so many people choose Fatima.
