Hoag Orthopedic Institute Only OC Hospital Named Among Top US Hospitals for Outpatient Joint Replacements by Healthgrades

Hoag Orthopedic Institute (HOI), one of the 4th largest providers of orthopedic care in the nation, is pleased to announce it has been named by Healthgrades as one of the top 112 US hospitals for outpatient joint replacements. HOI is the only such facility in Orange County included in the list of top US hospitals for orthopedic procedures.

More Americans are opting for hip and knee replacements in the outpatient setting, with 500,000 Medicare patients undergoing outpatient procedures between 2019 and 2021. Healthgrades data shows that patients receiving a joint replacement in one of the top-rated 112 hospitals will have a 50 percent lower chance of experiencing complications than those treated elsewhere. Healthgrades bases its rankings exclusively on clinical outcomes.

“The growth of outpatient surgery is reshaping medical care. Today, many patients undergo an orthopedic procedure, including joint replacement and spine surgery, in the morning and return home by the afternoon,” said Kim Mikes, CEO of HOI. “This happens daily at HOI, thanks to innovative procedures we developed to improve the delivery of care.”

Healthgrades is the nation’s leading platform for finding a doctor, and a leader in healthcare transparency, helping millions of consumers each month find best-in-class, treatment-focused content.

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, including topping the U.S. News Best Hospitals List in 2022-2023; 2021-2022; 2020-2021; 2019-2020; 2018-2019; 2017-2018; 2013-2014 and 2012-2013.
