This month the Joint Commission reviewed the Joint Replacement Program at MUSC Health.

WGold seal of joint commissionhat is the Joint Commission?

The Joint Commission is an independent not-for-profit organization with a mission to improve health care by evaluating health providers and organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing the highest quality care. The Commission’s accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide and ensures that “behind every gold seal of approval is an organization committed to quality.”

The comprehensive certification MUSC Health received for hip and knee replacement surgery and the recertification for shoulder replacement surgery reflects our joint replacement physicians’ dedication to providing the highest quality care to our patients. Congrats, to all of the physicians and MUSC Health personnel who work each day to achieve this goal!
