St. Mary’s recognized for excellence in orthopedic services
January 21, 2008
HealthGrades, Inc., the country's leading healthcare ratings organization, has recognized St. Mary's Hospital and Regional Medical Center as a regional, state, and national leader for orthopedic services.
Each year HealthGrades issues the Hospital Quality in America study. As part of the study HealthGrades independently and objectively rates the quality of care for near every hospital in the country.
HealthGrades results are based on our patients outcomes following various types of orthopedic surgery, says Connie Estridge, RN, clinical manager for Orthopedics Services. Orthopedic surgery, such as a joint replacement, is a significant operation, and it can make a huge improvement in a person's quality of life. From pre-surgery education through rehabilitation, everything we do is focused on a successful recovery and getting them back to doing the things they love to do.
