Texas hospital earns Joint Commission's hip and knee replacement certification


Covenant Health Plainview (Texas) has earned the Gold Seal of Approval for Advanced Total Hip and Knee Replacement Certification from The Joint Commission, according to a Dec. 6 report from MyPlainview

The designation was given in collaboration with the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and is based on factors including pre-surgical consultations, surgery, hospital care, rehabilitation and follow-up evaluations. 

The Joint Commission visited Covenant for an onsite review to evaluate the hospital's compliance and standards. 

"This was an effort from multiple departments," Joshua Rollins, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at Covenant, told MyPlainview. "[The award is] not only a testament to the quality of our wonderful orthopedics staff, but all members of our surgical team that strive to ensure the best outcomes possible."
