Caring for you like our own family

When Marianne knew it was time to get serious about getting her knee replaced, she took the recommendation of a friend that assured her she would get the best care from orthopedic surgeon Dr. Steven Morton and HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Highland.  She is so thankful she followed their advice as she couldn’t have asked for better care for her surgery, recovery and physical therapy.

Director of Surgery Megan Espenschied is proud of the high quality and compassionate care that anyone who comes to HSHS St. Joseph’s can expect from the minute they walk through the doors of the hospital. Combine that with advanced technology like robotic-assisted joint replacement surgery and you don't have to travel across the river to get excellent care. It's right in your backyard.
