Eisenhower Makes BEST List for Knee and Hip Replacements
Eisenhower Medical Center was recently recognized as one of the top 97 hospitals in the United States for outcomes following joint replacement surgery, according to a survey by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Of the 97 hospitals surveyed, Eisenhower is one of only eight California hospitals listed who performed better than average in avoiding readmissions.
The measured outcomes were based on Medicare data on how well patients fare after hip and knee replacement surgeries. The two outcome categories were readmissions after surgery and complications following surgery, such as a blood clot, infection, problem with the artificial joint or death. In judging hospitals, Medicare evaluated cases between July 2009 and June 2012.
