Sarasota Memorial Hospital was ranked America’s highest performing safety net hospital for total hip and knee replacements in 2016, according to an assessment by Modern Healthcare. SMH received the highest score in both clinical areas based on a review of inpatient data collected from all hospitals from 2012 to 2014 by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). Modern Healthcare analyzed a subset of that publicly reported data for the nation’s safety net hospitals (defined as those providing at least 0.1 percent of the nation’s charity care). It published the top five highest performers in the nation, with Sarasota Memorial ranked number one.
