Deaconess Gateway Hospital has been designated an Aetna Institute of Quality® Orthopedic Care facility for total joint replacement.
Aetna makes information about the quality and cost of health care services available to its members to help them make informed decisions about their health care needs. In line with this goal, Aetna recognizes hospitals and facilities in its network that offer specialized clinical services for certain health conditions. Facilities are selected for their unique expertise in consistently delivering evidence-based, safe care.
“Since the start of the Deaconess Joint Replacement Program in 2008, we have strived to provide our community with a dedicated joint replacement program that gives our patients high quality care with a truly unique experience,” said Sara Holzmeyer, MSN, RN, CMSRN and Gateway orthopedics department manager. “It’s an honor to have our hard work and commitment recognized by Aetna.”
