MCKINNEY, Texas (March 4, 2019) Methodist McKinney Hospital announced that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Joint Replacement – Knee and Hip Certification. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.
"Methodist McKinney Hospital has thoroughly demonstrated a high level of care for patients undergoing joint replacements,” said Patrick Phelan, executive director, Hospital Business Development, The Joint Commission. “We commend Methodist McKinney Hospital for becoming a leader in joint replacement, and for providing a higher standard of service for total knee and hip replacement patients in its community.”
Methodist McKinney Hospital underwent a rigorous on-site review where the Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with national disease-specific care standards, clinical practice guidelines, performance measures, as well as joint replacement specific requirements.
“This certificate confirms the skill of the orthopedic surgeons, nurses, therapists and hospital staff who all work together to provide superior care for patients requiring knee and/or hip replacement surgery,” said Joe Minissale, president of Methodist McKinney Hospital. “Thank you to all who helped us achieve this great honor.”
Methodist McKinney Hospital’s certification will be valid for a two-year period. The Joint Commission’s advanced certification was developed in response to the growing number of patients undergoing a total hip or total knee replacement surgery, as well as the increased focus on patient care as it relates to pain management, quality of life issues, limitations in mobility and the return to normal daily activities.
