Columbus Orthopaedic Outpatient Center has become one of only 6 facilities throughout the nation to earn The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval® for Advanced Total Hip and Knee Replacement Certification, by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization's commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
The certification, in collaboration with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, focuses on the pre-surgical orthopedic consultation to the intraoperative, hospitalization or ambulatory surgical center admission, rehabilitation activities, and follow-up visit with the orthopedic surgeon.
Columbus Orthopaedic Outpatient Center underwent a rigorous onsite review on October 23-24, 2019. During the visit, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with related certification standards. Joint Commission standards are developed in consultation with health, care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. The reviewers also conducted onsite observations and interviews.
