Argyle, TX (January 20, 2020) – Wise Health Surgical Hospital at Argyle affiliated with Wise Health System is proud to announce it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement Certification.
Wise Health Surgical Hospital underwent a rigorous, onsite review during which The Joint Commission
evaluated compliance with national disease-specific care standards, quality measures, consistency, safety, patient care, as well as the joint replacement specific requirements.
The Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement Certification was established in 2016 and is awarded for a two-year period. The program was developed in response to the growing number of patients undergoing a total hip or total knee replacement surgery, as well as the increased focus on clinical evidence-based patient care as it relates to pain management, quality of life issues, functional limitation in mobility and the return to normal daily activities.
“We are incredibly proud to have received this certification from The Joint Commission,” said Julie Casillas, Administrator for Wise Health Surgical Hospital at Argyle. “We strive for excellence every day, which is why we have a dedicated interdisciplinary team with extensive training in the orthopedic population and we offer an advanced surgical hospital with 4k integrated operating room suites.”
With infection rates and readmission rates well below the national average, patients stay an average of a day and a half. 91.48% of Wise Health Surgical Hospital’s patients are discharged home rather than into inpatient rehabilitation or a skilled nursing facility.
Amy Binkley, Chief Clinical Officer for Wise Health Surgical Hospital at Argyle said, “Our goal is to provide our patients with compassionate, innovative and high-quality care in a comfortable environment. We equip every patient with the necessary tools to achieve optimum surgical outcomes. Each patient attends our Total Joint Camp, which helps prepare them for joint replacement surgery. Our team then develops a customized plan for each patient’s specific needs."
