Patient Rooms 

KishHealth System joint replacement patients are hospitalized on a specially designated wing of our orthopedic units at Kishwaukee Hospital. All rooms are private and can easily accommodate several visitors at a time. Other features include:

  • 24-hour visitation
  • In-room refrigerator
  • Large bathroom
  • Flat screen TV connected to our GetWell Network, which provides educational information, email access, and entertainment (games, movies, television shows)

Wi-Fi is available throughout both hospitals so patients and visitors can use their own laptops. Visitors can eat in our Garden Café or in the room by ordering off our At Your Request menu for a nominal charge.

Group Activity Room

Education and physical therapy take place in the Joint Center Activity Room, located on the first floor of Kishwaukee Hospital in DeKalb. Depending on the patient’s length of stay, 1-2 group meals (for patients and coaches) may be provided as part of rehabilitation and the socialization of healing. Various activities, such as moving with a recliner, tracking progress on the Tracking Board, and stair climbing prepare patients and their coaches for the return home.
