Becker’s Recognizes Emory Healthcare as Top Performer in Orthopedics

ortho-story-squareEmory Healthcare’s orthopedic programs received top recognition in two nationwide lists released this Fall in Becker’s Hospital Review.

In its annual list, “100 Hospitals with Great Orthopedic Programs 2016,” Becker’s named Emory among the national leaders in orthopedic care. Specifically, Becker’s recognized Emory University Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital, Emory University Hospital and Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital. The only other hospital in Georgia to make the list was University Hospital in Augusta, Ga.

To develop the list, the Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team examined several rankings and awards for orthopedic care, including U.S. News & World Report, Joint Commission certification and Magnet nursing accreditation.

In a separate list, Becker’s recognized Emory University Hospital, which includes Emory University Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital, as one of 36 hospitals in the U.S. to have the lowest 30-day readmission rates for hip and knee replacement surgery. The list is based on data supplied by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services.

All the hospitals on the list have a readmission rate for hip and knee replacement of 3.4 or lower. The national average readmission rate for those procedures is 4.6. Emory’s rate was 3.4.

“For nearly a decade our team has worked diligently to implement a patient- and family-centered care model, a culture of safety, and a commitment to continuous quality improvement,” said Scott D. Boden, MD, the Director of the Musculoskeletal Center and CMO/CQO of the Emory University Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital. “It’s rewarding to see these efforts on behalf of our patients now recognized on a national platform.”

At EUOSH, It’s All About the Patient

The Emory University Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital is known for its strong focus on patients and families, as well as its sharp attention to detail. It’s unlike any other facility in Georgia.

In fact, EUOSH is so focused on patient satisfaction and comfort, we call upon 75 various patient committees and have adopted listening practices to ensure that we fully understand the needs of the patient. Further, we make a point to avoid being married to any sort of protocol; for example, there’s no limit on patient visiting hours, and family members are welcome to sit with patients right up until the time of surgery. Our efforts have not gone unnoticed—I’m proud to say that we have over a 90% satisfaction rate among our patients.

EUOSH is focused on teaching and research, and all of our physicians are highly specialized within their particular areas of focus.

Every room is equipped with everything a patient could possibly need for a comfortable recovery, including an interactive television that offers hospital information, a “my education” feature, the patients’ chart, health notes, and of course, regular TV channels and movie options.

EUOSH truly strives to exceed patient expectations every day. Learn more about the facility in this video:
