Patient- and Family-Centered Care From Qualified Nurses

At FWMC, we believe that patients and families are partners with our staff, working together to meet the needs of every patient. Our nurses develop an individualized approach to patient- and family-centered care, maximizing each patient’s health and healing potential.

Excellence in patient care is dependent upon the entire care team partnering together. Nurses approach to the planning, delivery, and evaluation of health is grounded in mutually beneficial partnerships among health care providers, patients, and families. Our commitment to patient- and family-centered care is a continual effort to be responsive to the needs and choices of each family.

In this approach, the degree of the family's involvement in health care is determined by the patient, provided that he or she is able to do so. Our nurses work with both patients and their families to develop a care plan that includes all parties, giving control to the patient with a channel for input from their loved ones.

Hear it from Our Patients

Jody Beard has suffered from knee pain for many years. Not anymore, thanks to knee replacement surgery through the Fort Washington Medical Center Joint Replacement Program.
This surgery has changed my life. I no longer lay on shopping carts for support or agonize when walking on concrete. After two knee replacements, now I am all over the place. I’m walking around the school where I work without pain. My granddaughter says I don’t walk like a penguin anymore. I have my surgeon and the FWMC staff to thank for that!
