FHD Hires Orthopaedic Clinical Coordinator

Florida Hospital DeLand has hired Kembala Castle, RN, as Orthopaedic Clinical Coordinator. 

n this new role, Castle will act as patients’ personal liaison and will follow them through the entire joint replacement process, from the pre-operative class through discharge and post-operative follow-up care.

In 2006, Castle relocated to DeLand from Long Island, NY with her family. She has experience in a variety of areas within the nursing field, including Medical/Surgical, Pediatrics and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. However, the majority of Castle’s experience has been within the Orthopaedic arena, making her a perfect fit for serving as the Clinical Coordinator at the Florida Hospital DeLand Orthopaedic Center of Excellence. Additionally, her previous experience as a Case Manager and Clinical Manager will be a valuable asset as she works with patients in her new role on discharge planning and promoting patient education for a healthier lifestyle.

Castle obtained a nursing degree at the Helene Fuld College of Nursing in New York City. She is currently continuing her education and pursuing a Master of Science in Nursing from Nova Southeastern University.

“Florida Hospital DeLand is fortunate to have a nurse of her caliber in this challenging role,” said Jill Piazza, Florida Hospital DeLand Director of Sports Medicine/Rehab and Orthopaedics.
