Hackensack Meridian Health Hackensack University Medical Center is pleased to announce it has been recognized by Becker's Hospital Review on its "100 hospitals and health systems with great orthopedic programs 2017" list.

“I want to congratulate our entire Orthopedics team on this significant achievement,” said Ihor Sawczuk, M.D., president of Hackensack University Medical Center. “This recognition is a tangible demonstration of their dedication to provide the highest quality, human-centered care.”

According to Becker’s Hospital Review, hospitals included on this list are national leaders in orthopedic care. Many are high volume centers for quality care, outcomes and innovation in musculoskeletal wellness. In addition to standout orthopedic care, the programs on this list feature top-notch research departments and tout well-respected surgeons in the field.

“We are delighted to receive this recognition,” said Michael A. Kelly, M.D., chair of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and chair of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Hackensack University Medical Center. “It is a pleasure and privilege to collaborate with our exceptional team in service of our patients, their families and the wider community.”
The program, which was recently awarded an Advanced Disease Specific Certification in Total Joint Replacement by the Joint Commission and was the first hospital in New Jersey to achieve Disease Specific Certification for Hip Fracture care, consists of 80 orthopedists and places emphasis on minimizing the use of opioids in the care of patients.
In compiling the list, the Becker's team examined several rankings and ratings along with the program's reputation for innovation. Becker's Hospital Review has published a version of this list since 2011.
