Hoag Orthopedic Institute Named ‘Highest-Rated Hospital’ for Knee and Hip Surgery by Consumer Reports
HOI One of Only Eight Hospitals in California to Earn Top Rating for Hip
and Knee Replacements
IRVINE, Calif. [August 1, 2016]
– Hoag Orthopedic Institute (HOI), one of the largest providers of orthopedic
care in the nation, has been named a
Consumer Reports ‘Highest-Rated Hospital’ for knee and also hip surgery for 2016, making it one of only eight hospitals
in California to be recognized.
Consumer Reports’ knee and hip surgery ratings are part of an ongoing effort to use the best
available data to help consumers compare hospital performance and make
informed choices about their health care.
The hospital is one of only 34 hospitals, in 20 states, to earn the highest
rating for hip surgery and one of 128 hospitals, in 34 states, to receive
the honor for knee surgery.
“Hoag Orthopedic Institute is honored to be included in this year’s
Consumer Reports surgery ratings,” said Dr. Carlos A. Prietto, president and CEO
of Hoag Orthopedic Institute. “Our staff truly goes above and beyond
every day to ensure our patients are able to get back to doing the things
they love to do.”
Consumer Reports rates hospitals based on how well their patients fare during and after
elective surgery, including hip and knee replacements. The ratings are
based on billing data of a hospital’s Medicare patients.
“Our mission at Hoag Orthopedic Institute is to be a trusted leader
in orthopedic care, always putting patient care first, and this ranking
is an outstanding, third-party validation of the positive feedback we
hear from our patients every day,” added Dr. Robert Gorab, chief
medical officer of Hoag Orthopedic Institute. “We know how important
and overwhelming it can be to choose the right doctor and we’re
confident this accolade will help our patients feel even more confident
in entrusting us with their care.”
Hoag Orthopedic Institute, the highest volume provider of joint replacements
in California, has received consistent recognition from various publications
and health care organizations for its patient-focused services since opening
in 2010. This designation comes shortly after receiving
Modern Healthcare’s ‘Best Places to Work in Healthcare’ designation. For more information on the various accolades the
