GOLDSEAL - JOINT REPLACEMENT DESIGNATION
Truman Medical Centers is proud to have earned three Joint Commission Gold Seals of Approval® for its orthopaedic programs.
TMC Lakewood orthopaedics team has earned Advanced Gold Seal Certification for Total Joint Replacement – Knees and Hips (the first hospital in the Kansas City area to do so), and Gold Seal Certification for Total Joint Replacement – Shoulders.
TMC Health Sciences District has earned Gold Seal Certification for Total Joint Replacement – Knees and Hips.
The Gold Seal recognizes TMC’s dedication to excellent patient care before, during, and after a total hip or total knee replacement. Our consistent, comprehensive approach to caring for patients makes both of our orthopaedics teams deserving of this prestigious designation.
The Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification Program launched in 2002 and is designed to evaluate clinical programs across the continuum of care. Certification requirements address three core areas: compliance with consensus-based national standards; effective use of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines to manage and optimize care; and an organized approach to performance measurement and improvement activities.
