OHOW Named on Becker’s Hospital Review’s “100 Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Orthopedic Programs” List

Orthopaedic Hospital of Wisconsin has three critical success factors: quality, patient satisfaction, and staff satisfaction. Our focus on these critical success factors has driven OHOW to be recognized as a leader of orthopedic care in Wisconsin as well as the United States. We work every day to uphold our high standard of care and we have received numerous awards to recognize us in each one of these categories. Most recently, we have been featured on Becker’s Hospital Review’s 100 hospitals and health systems with great orthopedic programs list for 2019

Becker’s Healthcare is one of the main resources for healthcare information and news in the industry. They release a number of publications such as Becker’s Hospital Review, Becker’s ASC Review, Becker’s Spine Review, Becker’s Clinical Leadership & Infection Control, and Becker’s Dental Review. Becker’s Hospital Review often acknowledges significant healthcare organizations and leaders. 

Becker’s Hospital Review’s 100 hospitals and health systems with great orthopedic programs 2019 recognizes organizations that provide high-quality care and top patient satisfaction rates in orthopedic and spine surgery. The organizations that received this honor were nominated to the Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team and chosen based on several rankings and awards. Becker’s Review states these awards included the U.S. News & World Report rankings for adult and pediatric orthopedics, CareChex rankings, Healthgrades awards, Leapfrog, Blue Cross Blue Shield Blue Distinction Center designation, The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval and hospitals’ reputations for innovation in orthopedic care.

Becker’s Hospital Review says the following about the award recipients: “Many are high-volume centers where surgeons annually perform hundreds, and in some cases thousands, of total joint replacements, in addition to less complex musculoskeletal surgeries. These programs highlighted have rich histories of innovation and have won grants to research musculoskeletal treatments. The centers also include robust nonoperative services and provide care to professional and elite athletes in their communities.”

At the Orthopaedic Hospital of Wisconsin, we do orthopedics well because orthopedics is all we do. We are able to tailor every aspect of the patient’s experience to deliver superior patient care and comfort. We are honored to be one of only two organizations to receive this recognition in Wisconsin and to be listed amongst the other leaders in orthopedic care throughout the United States. 

Becker’s Hospital Review notes, “Orthopaedic Hospital of Wisconsin serves patients from across the state. Since being established in 2001 as a joint venture between a group of orthopedic surgeons and Columbia St. Mary’s Ascension, the hospital has added services and expanded into a larger location. More recently, it ranked in the top 1 percent of hospitals for overall patient satisfaction, as measured by Press Ganey, and earned the Top 100 Workplaces award from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel from 2013 to 2019. The physician-owned hospital participates in Medicare’s value-based purchasing program and provides physical therapy and athletic training for UW Milwaukee.”
