McLAREN ORTHOPEDIC HOSPITAL NAMED TO LIST OF "100 HOSPITALS WITH GREAT ORTHOPEDIC PROGRAMS”

LANSING, Mich.McLaren Orthopedic Hospital has received yet another distinction for its nationally recognized orthopedic program. McLaren Orthopedic Hospital has been named to Becker's Hospital Review’s 2013 list of "100 Hospitals With Great Orthopedic Programs," which recognizes orthopedic programs that have earned considerable recognition.

"This distinction is another testament to the quality and skill of our physicians and to the dedication of our staff,” said Rick Wright, president and chief executive officer of McLaren Greater Lansing and McLaren Orthopedic Hospital. "Thank you to the physicians and staff who continuously strive to keep our orthopedic program among the best in the nation … you have created an orthopedic ‘crown jewel’ for patients throughout Michigan.”

McLaren Orthopedic Hospital is the region’s only hospital on the list.

According to the announcement from Becker’s Hospital Review: "Exceptional orthopedic departments often include physicians who provide outstanding patient care, advance cutting-edge orthopedic research and treat professional athletes. Many of the hospitals featured on this list have earned recognition for orthopedic excellence from U.S. News & World Report, Healthgrades, CareChex and Blue Cross Blue Shield. To devise this list, the Becker's editorial team weighted the aforementioned rankings and recognition and conducted research to find the following hospitals as those with great orthopedic programs.”

McLaren Orthopedic Hospital received numerous other distinctions in 2013, including:

  • Ranked No. 1 in Michigan, and among the top ten percent in the nation for joint replacement by CareChex,
  • Named a Blue Distinction Center+ for knee and hip replacement by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan,
  • Designated among Aetna’s Institutes of Quality for total joint replacement, and
  • Recognized as a charter member of the American Joint Replacement Registry, an organization that seeks to enhance patient safety, improve quality of care and reduce cost of care.
