Get to Know Us
Welcome to the Institute for Orthopaedic Surgery (IOS), one of the first orthopaedic surgical specialty
hospitals in the state and nation.
We opened in 1998 as an ambulatory surgery center and converted
to an accredited acute care hospital in 2002 committed to improving the muscular-skeletal healthcare
delivery in our community. The IOS campus is also home to the Orthopaedic Institute of Ohio (OIO)
group of orthopedic surgeons. The OIO physicians' offices are located in another part of the same
building. This allows IOS the advantage of providing comprehensive orthopaedic services in one
location from diagnosis and treatment to surgery and post surgery rehabilitation. This efficient,
patient-centered care delivery model results in high patient satisfaction as reported in our patient
satisfaction survey results.
We know that you probably have many questions about our specialty hospital and what to expect
as a patient at IOS. The information on this website has been prepared to answer many of the
questions you, your family, or visitors may have about IOS and the services we offer. We hope you
take a few minutes to browse the website. If you need more information or have any unanswered
questions, please use the contact information and our staff will be happy to assist you.
Thank you for choosing the Institute for Orthopaedic Surgery your orthopaedic specialty care hospital
for all your muscular-skeletal needs.
