The Columbus (Miss.) Orthopaedic Outpatient Center has earned the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval for advanced total hip and knee replacement, according to the Mississippi Business Journal.
To earn the certification, the ASC underwent an on-site survey Oct. 23 and 24. The Joint Commission surveyors evaluated the center's pre-surgical consultation, admission, follow-up visits and physical therapy processes.
The Columbus Orthopaedic Outpatient Center is one of six facilities in the U.S. to earn the certification.
