Joint replacement surgery is an important personal decision. You will be pleased to know that our comprehensive joint care program has received high praise from patients, physicians and national experts.
Reduced Pain, Improved Function
Exceptional rankings by joint patients have earned Holland Hospital the top award among leading joint replacement centers nationwide. Actual patient-reported outcomes show that three months after surgery:
90% report mild or no pain standing vs. 81% national average
97% report mild or no difficulty walking vs. 84% national average
High Patient Satisfaction
We consistently exceed national averages by a wide margin in overall satisfaction and definitely recommend to others. We believe that every patient deserves to be cared for with the utmost dignity and respect. It's not enough that patients have good health outcomes, it's also important that they feel like they are receiving good treatment when under our care.
In addition, our patients spend less time in the hospital after surgery and return home more quickly. We closely monitor patient outcomes. We also aim to achieve measured outcomes that exceed the average for other top centers nationally. It all adds up to the right choice for knee replacement and contributed to Holland Hospital being named a HealthGrades 5-Star Recipient for Total Knee Replacement two years in a row.
Destination Center of Superior Performance
Working in collaboration with national joint care experts and area orthopedic specialists, Holland Hospital has become the destination of choice for joint replacement patients from the West Michigan Lakeshore area and beyond. We have been designated as a Destination Center of Superior Performance by the physician-led health care firm Marshall-Steele based on our excellent performance among leading joint centers nationwide.
Blue Distinction® Center for Knee and Hip Replacement
We are also recognized as a Blue Distinction® Center for Knee and Hip Replacement—the only Lakeshore area hospital to receive this quality designation from Blue Cross/Blue Shield for expertise in quality care, better overall outcomes for patients and meeting objective clinical measures developed by expert physicians and medical organizations.
