June 2022 marked an important month in Bertrand Chaffee Hospital history – the first orthopaedic joint procedures were completed at the Bertrand Chaffee Hospital Surgical suite. This came about one month after the official opening of the BCH Orthopaedic Surgical Center. The team of Dr. Paul Mason, MD and Jim O’May, PA has been thrilled to meet with and provide care to their first orthopaedic patients at BCH.
Dennis Elbow (pictured), a Wyoming County resident, received the first total joint replacement at Bertrand Chaffee Hospital when he had his right knee replaced in June.
“The introduction of orthopaedic care at Bertrand Chaffee Hospital is a direct response to community need and part of our strategic growth plan,” stated Nils Gunnersen, Bertrand Chaffee Hospital CEO. “We are pleased to have Dr. Mason and Jim O’May sharing their skill, knowledge and expertise and providing excellent care to our new ortho patients. This is a significant milestone in BCH history – having our very own orthopaedic clinic in the Springville community.”
Sue Williams was the second total joint replacement patient, receiving a total hip replacement. She commented “My care from start to finish has been professional, thorough, and complete by a medical team that was caring, fully engaged in my personal well-being, as well as being dedicated to my recovery success. I could not be happier with my choice to put my trust in Dr Paul Mason and Jim O’May and their care professionals at the Bertrand Chaffee Hospital.”
“The response has been tremendous,” commented Dr. Mason. “We are grateful to be providing care to familiar faces and new patients from the Springville community.”
