We are pleased to announce that Saint John’s has earned the Aetna Institute of Quality (IOQ) designation for our total joint replacement program. The team can add this honor to the other national accolades we have received, including Blue Cross Blue Shield Blue Distinction Center, Optum Center of Excellence and U.S. News World & Report highest performing hospitals.

This prestigious award recognizes Providence Saint John’s commitment to providing evidence-based orthopedic care that meets national standards for clinical performance, patient safety, lower complication rates and readmissions.

Our joint replacement team continues to prioritize the community’s health needs, and this designation is a testimony to their success and pledge to uphold these standards of excellence, which elevates the quality of orthopedic care at Saint John’s.

Please join me in congratulating our joint replacement team for their exceptional work and dedication to advancing the treatment of joint replacement care, while continuously improving out patients’ quality of life in the community.
