Sound Shore Earns Joint Commission Dual Certification
Date:2/1/2013

New Rochelle, NY (PRWEB) February 01, 2013

Sound Shore Medical Center (SSMC) is pleased to announce that its new program for individuals choosing hip and knee replacement surgery has earned the Gold Seal of Approval® from The Joint Commission as a certified center of excellence. This achievement makes SSMC one of only 307 hospitals nationally to merit certification in both hip and knee joint replacements. More importantly Sound Shore Medical Center is one of only 12 in New York State and the first and only hospital in Westchester County to earn this dual distinction.

Certification by The Joint Commission demonstrates Sound Shore Medical Center’s compliance with national standards for healthcare quality and safety in hip and knee replacements. This was accomplished through a rigorous on-site review regarding standards of care specific to the needs of patients and their families. The Program’s in-house patient satisfaction scores consistently record 95% and above and speak to the patients’ perception of SSMC’s exceptional care.

“Seeking Joint Commission certification in hip and knee replacements demonstrates our commitment to the highest level of care for our patients. And achieving this Gold Standard of Care acknowledges the quality of this vital Program,” said John R. Spicer, President and CEO of Sound Shore Medical Center.

Joint Solutions provides patients with a unique hospital experience – one that celebrates wellness and recovery in a dedicated unit. A complete understanding of the joint-replacement process, expert surgeons, the support of a specially-trained staff, working exclusively with joint replacement patients, and a dedicated suite for recovery are at the core of this exceptional Program. The goal of Joint Solutions is to provide each elective-surgery patient an extraordinary experience before, during and after surgery. This approach results in knowledge, care and the tools needed for a seamless transition from hospital to home.

The Joint Solutions Program has physician coverage 24/7, a state-of-the-art Patient Monitoring System and hotel-style amenities. It is under the medical direction of Steven Zelicof, MD, PhD, FACS, who is Chief of Orthopedic Doctors at SSMC. The Joint Solutions Program is coordinated by Peggy Coll, a Nurse Practitioner with more than 25 years of surgical experience and dedication to patients.
