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. It was the only hospital in the southeast United States to make the Top 10 Joint Replacement Hospitals list, released last week by the national trade publication. This is 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. “Experience really counts when it comes to specialty care,” Sarasota Memorial’s Chief Medical Officer James Fiorica, MD, said. “There’s a clear correlation between high-volume providers and better patient outcomes.”
