Iowa Specialty Hospitals earns orthopedic and spine center of excellence designation


Clarion-based Iowa Specialty Hospitals and Clinics has been designated an orthopedic and spine center of excellence by the DNV, according to a Feb. 24 report from the Globe Gazette.

It is the first facility in Iowa to be recognized in four areas: the orthopedic and spine center of excellence designation, the advanced hip and knee replacement certification, the advanced spine surgery certification and the advanced shoulder surgery certification.

The DNV center of excellence designation is obtained by receiving certifications in three advanced programs and informed by guidelines from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, the ERAS Society, the North American Spine Society, the American Society of Anesthesiologists, and relevant CMS requirements.
