MVHS named in the top 5 in New York State for Joint Replacement, and we received the Joint Replacement Excellence Award. In addition, we were a Five-Star Recipient for Total Knee Replacement, Total Hip Replacement and Hip Fracture Treatment.
Healthgrades Specialty Excellence Awards recognize hospitals with superior performance in specific specialty lines and specialty focus areas. For example: From 2018-2020, patients treated at hospitals receiving the Joint Replacement Specialty Excellence Award have, on average 61.1 percent lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award. And patients treated at hospitals which did not receive the Joint Replacement Specialty Excellence Award have, on average 2.57 times more likely to experience one or more complications in the hospital than if they were treated at hospitals that did receive the award.
Healthgrades recognizes a hospital’s quality achievements for cohort-specific performance, specialty area performance and overall clinical quality. This is such great news for our organization, our patients and our community! But, these awards don’t just “happen.” They are the result of intentional focus, and the hard work and commitment of our providers and caregivers.
