OHOW Ranked #1 in Wisconsin – 2022 Joint Replacement Excellence Award from Healthgrades

Orthopaedic Hospital of Wisconsin (OHOW) is honored to be awarded the 2022 Joint Replacement Excellence Award from Healthgrades. The award recognizes 117 hospitals across 27 states. OHOW ranked #1 in Wisconsin for this award. Each hospital that earned this achievement was found to provide superior clinical outcomes in total hip and knee replacements. The complete list of hospitals with this award was published in Becker’s Spine Review. 

“Receiving this recognition is a prestigious honor,” Brandon G. Goldbeck, Chief Executive Officer for OHOW said. “This award demonstrates our continued focus on providing the highest quality of care and patient satisfaction. We are honored to be ranked as a top hospital in the nation and the #1 hospital in Wisconsin for joint replacement surgery.”

Healthgrades the leading source of information that helps consumers find reviews and information on physicians and hospitals. Healthgrades independently reviews information hospitals submit to the federal government. No hospital may pay to be analyzed and no hospital may choose to opt out of the analysis. 

To calculate their ranking, Healthgrades evaluated total knee and hip replacements based on in-hospital complications to determine award winners using z-scores. A z-score is a standardized test that calculates the difference between the actual and predicted complication and mortality rates, taking into account patient variability and volume. A higher z-score means better performance. For a full breakdown of Healthgrades’ methodology, click here.
