Swedish recognized for best outcomes and value for hip and knee surgery

February 22, 2018

Swedish Medical Center is among 17 hospitals nationwide to be recognized for having the best value for hip and knee replacement surgery for Medicare populations. Swedish ranked fourth in a list compiled by trade publication Orthopedics This Week.

To determine its list, publication editors examined hospital performance data pulled from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services database. They examined overall cost of care, complication rates and patient satisfaction scores to conclude what makes a “top” hip and knee replacement hospital. 

The article also highlights a hospital’s average hip and knee payment by CMS, including number of cases reviewed, and summary of achievements. See the full list of best value hospitals and the top 200 hospitals, organized by state, as ranked by Orthopedics This Week.
