Hoag Orthopedic Institute Named ‘Highest-Rated Hospital’ for Knee and Hip Surgery by Consumer Reports

IRVINE, CA, August 03, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — Hoag Orthopedic Institute (HOI), one of the largest providers of orthopedic care in the nation, has been named a Consumer Reports ‘Highest-Rated Hospital’ for knee and also hip surgery for 2016, making it one of only eight hospitals in California to be recognized. Consumer Reports’ knee and hip surgery ratings are part of an ongoing effort to use the best available data to help consumers compare hospital performance and make informed choices about their health care.

The hospital is one of only 34 hospitals, in 20 states, to earn the highest rating for hip surgery and one of 128 hospitals, in 34 states, to receive the honor for knee surgery.

“Hoag Orthopedic Institute is honored to be included in this year’s Consumer Reports surgery ratings,” said Dr. Carlos A. Prietto, president and CEO of Hoag Orthopedic Institute. “Our staff truly goes above and beyond every day to ensure our patients are able to get back to doing the things they love to do.”

Consumer Reports rates hospitals based on how well their patients fare during and after elective surgery, including hip and knee replacements. The ratings are based on billing data of a hospital’s Medicare patients.

“Our mission at Hoag Orthopedic Institute is to be a trusted leader in orthopedic care, always putting patient care first, and this ranking is an outstanding, third-party validation of the positive feedback we hear from our patients every day,” added Dr. Robert Gorab, chief medical officer of Hoag Orthopedic Institute. “We know how important and overwhelming it can be to choose the right doctor and we’re confident this accolade will help our patients feel even more confident in entrusting us with their care.”

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.
