Awards & Accreditation

Community Regional Medical Center’s five-star-rated Hip Replacement Program and Knee Replacement Program consistently rank among the best in the nation.

Since our first award in 2003, the independent healthcare rating organization HealthGrades®, awarded a five-star rating to the Hip Replacement Program at Community Regional. HealthGrades also awarded a five-star rating to Community for hip fracture repair. The five-star HealthGrades rating is reserved for only the top 15% of hospitals in America. The HealthGrades study is the largest of its kind, analyzing patient outcomes at nearly every one of the nation’s 5,000 hospitals.

The Hip and Knee Replacement Program at Community Regional also has been designated a “Premium Total Joint Replacement Specialty Center” by UnitedHealth. To earn this designation, Community exceeded a rigorous set of criteria based on nationally recognized medical standards developed by orthopedic surgeons.

Community Regional also has been recognized as a CareScience™ Select Practice National Quality Leader for total hip surgery.  This award was received by demonstrating a combination of superior clinical outcomes for patients and exceptional efficiency, compared to other hospitals in the United States. In fact, the Select Practice designation was only given to hospitals that performed in the top 1% nationwide.
