Pioneers Medical Center is proud to announce we’ve received a 2024 Joint Replacement Excellence Award™ from Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients. Recipients of this prestigious honor rank among the top 10% of hospitals in the nation for the specialty in which they’ve been recognized.
PMC is the only hospital along the Western Slope to earn the 2024 Joint Replacement Excellence Award. Healthgrades also recognized Pioneers Medical Center with 5-star achievements for total knee replacement and total hip replacement. These accolades reflect our commitment to delivering the highest quality medical care available, and they distinguish us as one of the leading hospitals in the country.
The Healthgrades Joint Replacement Excellence Award is given to hospitals demonstrating outstanding clinical performance. Unlike other hospital quality studies, Healthgrades makes clinical outcomes the sole criteria for earning this prestigious award. The 2024 hospital assessment focused on patient mortality and complication rates among 35 common conditions and procedures throughout 4,500 hospitals across the country.
The Healthgrades ratings used to determine award recipients provide critical feedback for hospitals and patients alike. Their objective patient outcome metrics make it easy for patients to identify the medical facilities that deliver the best quality care. Similarly, these ratings allow hospitals to clearly see what they do well and which areas they need to improve on moving forward.
According to the most recent Healthgrades data, the performance gap between the best performing hospitals and other facilities is getting wider, making it more critical than ever to seek treatment from a top-rated surgical clinic such as PMC. Over a three-year period from 2020-2022, patients treated at hospitals earning the Joint Replacement Excellence Award have experienced a 63.9% lower risk of complications on average compared with patients treated at hospitals not receiving this distinction.
Pioneers Medical Center is committed to providing the exceptional quality healthcare services our community deserves. Our staff includes some of the most highly experienced, board certified and fellowship trained orthopedic surgeons along the Western Slope. The skill of our orthopedics team, along with our commitment to using the most advanced technology with all procedures, allows us to consistently achieve patient outcomes that rank among the best in the nation. Earning the 2024 Joint Replacement Excellence Award is further proof that our efforts are providing our patients with the quality care necessary to restore a pain free life and enjoy their favorite activities once again.
