Miriam Hospital’s Total Joint Center has received The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement. 

Miriam’s Total Joint Center is one of only three centers in New England to earn the designation. 

“This advanced Joint Commission certification is recognition of The Miriam Hospital’s team approach to ensuring patients have the best possible outcome. This is achieved by providing safe, state-of-the-art care, starting prior to surgery and through the rehabilitative process,” said John A. Froehlich, M.D., program director of the Total Joint Center.

The certificate recognizes the Total Joint Center’s quality, consistency and safety of services and patient care set by The Joint Commission. 

Earning the Designation 

The Miriam Hospital underwent an onsite review by the Joint Commission to become one of only 32 advanced total hip and knee centers in the country. 

Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with advanced disease-specific care standards and total hip and total knee replacement requirements, including orthopedic consultation, and pre-operative, intraoperative and post-surgical orthopedic surgeon follow-up care.
