Caring for patients and community
At Commonwealth, we are committed to the practice of medicine and improving the health of our patients, but we're equally committed to improving the health of our local communities. You can read about how COA doctors and therapists are making a difference every day below.

COA Joint-Replacement Picnic a Yearly Success
For 12 years now, Commonwealth Orthopaedic Associates has celebrated the success of our joint-replacement patients with a special picnic just for them. COA feels it's important to show our patients that we appreciate their continued support and their trust in our doctors and their care. Over the years the number of attendees has grown. This, coupled with the dedication and hard work of our COA staff, ensures the continued success of this event.
The event is held at St. Benedict's Picnic Grove, on Route 10 in Plowville. It's a great opportunity for our patients to reunite with others they may have met in the hospital, or in rehab, or at a previous picnic. Over the years, they've built a strong camaraderie with one another, based on their shared experiences. Plus, there's always plenty of food, BINGO to play, live music for listening and dancing, and fun door prizes.
