Premiere certification for Advanced Total Hip and Knee Replacement has been awarded to Oregon Surgical Institute (OSI) by The Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare.
This certification recognizes OSI for its dedication to quality patient outcomes and exceeding industry standards. Designed specifically to provide superb patient care in an outpatient setting, the 14,000-squarefoot ambulatory surgery center focuses on total joint replacement, spine surgery, orthopedics, pain management, podiatry, gynecology, and cardiology.
“Innovation, collaboration, and the highest quality standards have been the central focus since launching our total joint program,” says Christopher J. Nanson, M.D., M.P.H., and board-certified orthopedic surgeon. “This level of recognition represents an important achievement for everyone at OSI and is a tribute to our incredible team.”
The Joint Commission’s certifications are designed to evaluate clinical programs across the continuum of care – this includes pre-operative consultation with the surgeon and team, intraoperative care, rehabilitation activities after surgery, and the subsequent follow-up visit with the orthopedic surgeon.
“We have been hyper-focused on patient care and positive outcomes since opening our doors in 2018,” says board-certified orthopedic surgeon James C. Ballard, M.D. “We have created a care model for patients that is superb – from pre-admission and surgery, through recovery and tracking outcomes. The goal is higher-quality, more affordable care for the patients and that is exactly what we are delivering.”
Certification programs assist healthcare organizations in developing and maintaining consistent communication and collaboration among all healthcare providers involved in the care of the patient, improving patient outcomes.
