Cabell Huntington Hospital Receives Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Knee Replacement

Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH) has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement. CHH is the only hospital in the Tri-State region and only one of two hospitals in the state of West Virginia to obtain this designation.

The advanced certification is for Joint Commission-accredited hospitals seeking to elevate the quality, consistency and safety of patient care. Cabell Huntington Hospital underwent a rigorous onsite review. During that visit, Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with advanced disease-specific care standards for total hip and total knee replacement requirements, including orthopedic consultation, and pre-operative, intraoperative and post-surgical orthopedic surgeon follow-up care.

“Achieving Advanced Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement Certification recognizes our commitment to provide care in a safe and efficient manner,” said Kevin Fowler, president and CEO of Cabell Huntington Hospital. “The advanced certification verifies the coordinated and comprehensive care team Cabell Huntington Hospital provides to patients undergoing a total hip or total knee replacement.”
