Nationally RecognizedSpecialty Hospital


Here at North Carolina Specialty, one of our many duties is to provide our patients and community with the information and education needed to promote health and wellness. We plan to achieve this task by offering patients and the community with classes and programs to educate and prepare them for their hospital stay and post hospital recovery.

Preadmission Joint Class

NCSH offers a Preadmission Total Joint Class held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 2:00 pm at NCSH for prospective total hip and total knee replacement patients and their families. The class is presented by Nursing, Physical Therapy, and Social Work in an effort to prepare patients for their hospital stay and post hospital recovery. We try to take patients through their hospital stay, day by day, explaining pain control methods, blood clot prevention, physical therapy exercises, and discharge planning. It is felt that patients who attend the class are better prepared mentally, emotionally, and physically for their hospital stay and rehabilitation.

If you have any further questions regarding the classes, contact our Social Worker at (919) 595-8469
