Orthopedic hospital logs 2,300 surgeries in first year

Orthopaedic Center

Surgeons at Harrison Medical Center’s orthopedic hospital in Silverdale performed 2,300 operations during the center’s first year of operation, according to a Tuesday news release.

Thousands of other patients received care at the facility, which opened on Sept. 16, 2013. The center also hosts educational talks and tours.

Harrison built the hospital to meet a coming wave of demand. The need for orthopedic care is expected to swell as Kitsap’s population ages rapidly. By 2040, more than 24 percent of the county’s population will be over the age of 65.

The newest Harrison facility, an 24-hour urgent care clinic on Bainbridge Island, is under construction. The clinic is slated to open Dec. 1.
