Sarasota Memorial Hospital was ranked among the nation’s top 10 highest-volume hospitals for hip and knee replacements, based on an independent analysis of 2017 Medicare claims reported by Orthopedic Network News. Sarasota Memorial was the only hospital in the southeast United States to make the Top 10 Joint Replacement Hospitals list. In the report, SMH also was spotlighted for specialized revision hip and knee procedures. Revision procedures are an important quality metric because they are generally considered more challenging procedures than initial surgeries, and a high number of revision procedures generally means that a hospital has become a referral center for other revisions that cannot be treated elsewhere. It’s not the first time Sarasota Memorial has been recognized among the nation’s highest performers for hip and knee surgery. In 2017, SMH was named a Center of Excellence for hip and knee replacement by DNV-GL Healthcare USA, Inc., one of the nation's leading hospital accrediting organizations, and also ranked among U.S. News & World Reports’ and Modern Healthcare’s “High Performing” hospitals for hip and knee replacement.
