We are proud to share that theMount Sinai Beth Israel Department of Orthopaedics has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval®for Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement.
Mount Sinai Beth Israel is the only hospital in New York City to receive this prestigious certification for an orthopedic program. The award is a symbol of the highest quality safety and care and recognizes compliance with The Joint Commission’s strict national standards. Only seven other orthopedic programs in the United States have been granted this top honor for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement.
This Advanced Certification means we have met the standard for best orthopedic practices in the country. It assures patients that our orthopedic surgeons performing total hip and knee replacements adhere to the highest standard of care, and that their procedures result in excellent outcomes.
The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Mount Sinai Beth Israel underwent a rigorous four-day, on-site survey in July. A reviewer from The Joint Commission conducted an exhaustive analysis of care provided to patients requiring total hip and knee replacements. The survey examined all aspects of care, including pre-operative evaluation, the surgery itself, and the patient’s recovery in the hospital following the procedure.
