The Orthopedic Institute and Joint Replacement Center: 1-877-862-BONE
Awarded for Excellence
Our Knee & Hip Replacement programs and Home Health & Hospice programs have received The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™. These accreditations are recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting performance standards, such as patient rights, patient treatment and infection control.
Certification was awarded after the orthopedic experts at our Joint Replacement Center voluntarily underwent an intensive evaluation where they demonstrated exemplary standards and practices in joint replacement treatments and procedures.
About the Joint Commission: Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations. The Joint Commission evaluates and accredits nearly 15,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States, including more than 8,000 hospitals and home care organizations, and more than 6,800 other health care organizations that provide long term care, assisted living, behavioral health care, laboratory and ambulatory care services. The Joint Commission also accredits health plans, integrated delivery networks, and other managed care entities. In addition, the Joint Commission provides certification of disease-specific care programs, primary stroke centers, and health care staffing services. An independent, not-for-profit organization, the Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care. The Joint Commission launched its Disease-Specific Care Certification program in 2002. It is the first program of its kind in the country to certify disease management programs.
