Upland, CA — Blue Shield of California has selected San Antonio Regional Hospital, Joint Replacement in Upland, CA, as a Blue Distinction Center for Knee and Hip Replacement as part of the Blue Distinction Specialty Care program. Blue Distinction Centers are nationally designated healthcare facilities, shown to deliver improved patient safety and better health outcomes, based on objective measures that were developed with input from the medical community. Knee and hip replacement procedures are among the fastest growing medical treatments in the U.S., according to studies published in the June 2014 Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. Hospitals designated as Blue Distinction Centers for Knee and Hip Replacement demonstrate expertise in total knee and total hip replacement surgeries, resulting in fewer patient complications and hospital re-admissions. Designated hospitals must also maintain national accreditation. “San Antonio Regional Hospital is proud to be recognized by Blue Shield of California for meeting the robust selection criteria for knee and hip replacements set by the Blue Distinction Specialty Care program,” states Harris F. Koenig, President and Chief Executive Officer, San Antonio Regional Hospital. The Total Joint Replacement Program located at San Antonio’s Orthopedic Institute offers patients a superior experience on many levels. The program incorporates best practices and a more streamlined, efficient approach to ensure the best outcomes for patients while minimizing recovery time. “Our patients benefit from a dedicated orthopedic team that involves many disciplines within the hospital,” Koenig states. “In addition to some of the finest orthopedic surgeons in the region, our registered nurses and physical therapists have special training to concentrate on patients who have undergone a joint replacement surgery. We have also added extra mobility aides on the floor to assist our patients in ambulating more often. This accelerates healing and recovery time. In fact, most of our knee and hip replacement patients go home within one to two days. Our Orthopedic Nurse Navigator is also a valuable part of the team, providing pre-surgery education and post-surgery follow-up, so our patients have a resource to turn to for questions or assistance every step of the way.” Since 2006, the Blue Distinction Specialty Care program has helped patients find quality providers for their specialty care needs in the areas of bariatric surgery, cardiac care, complex and rare cancers, knee and hip replacements, maternity care, spine surgery and transplants, while encouraging healthcare professionals to improve the care they deliver. Research shows that facilities designated as Blue Distinction Centers demonstrate better quality and improved outcomes for patients compared with their peers.
