The Joint Center at Wooster Community Hospital has again earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for Knee and Hip Replacement by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety in disease-specific care. The certification award recognizes Wooster Community Hospital’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards.
For people who make the decision to have joint replacement, their main concern is their recovery and a more mobile life. “Joint center care” is an emerging concept in joint rehabilitation designed to prepare patients for this process from the first night in the hospital to the care needed at home. The main goal of this type of program is to help patients return home to a normal life of activity.
