Siena Joint Replacement Unit Awarded Joint Commission Certification

St. Rose Dominican Hospitals–Siena Campus has earned the Gold Seal of Approval™ from The Joint Commission for its Joint Replacement Unit. The Joint Commission awarded the Siena Campus the Disease-Specific Care Certification for Joint Replacement.

The Siena Campus earned this distinction after The Joint Commission conducted an on-site review in August making it the first and only hospital in Nevada certified for Joint Replacement and the only one within the Catholic Healthcare West system.

The program was evaluated against The Joint Commission standards through an assessment of a program’s processes, the program’s ability to evaluate and improve care within its own organization, and interviews with patients and staff.

“This certification means St. Rose Dominican Hospitals–Siena Campus does the right things and does them well for Joint Replacement patients,” said Jean E. Range, M.S., R.N., C.P.H.Q., executive director, Disease-Specific Care Certification, Joint Commission.

“The Siena Campus pursued the comprehensive, independent evaluation of The Joint Replacement Unit at our Siena Campus to demonstrate our commitment to a higher standard of service,” said Rod Davis, president, St. Rose Dominican Hospitals. “Our staff worked incredibly hard to attain certification, so we are very proud to have achieved this distinction.”

The Joint Commission launched its Disease-Specific Care Certification program in 2002. It is the first program of its kind in the country to certify disease management programs. A list of programs certified by the Joint Commission is available at www.jointcommission.org.
