Awards and Accreditation

At the Memorial Hermann Joint Center, we believe that quality outcomes, patient safety, and patient satisfaction are of the utmost importance. That’s why the Center’s 8 Houston-area locations have been recognized by a variety of organizations for their achievements in joint replacement, including the following accolades:

Truven Health Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters) named Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center among the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® for the fourth time in 2014. The award recognizes hospitals that have achieved excellence and overall organizational performance in clinical outcomes, patient safety, patient satisfaction, financial performance, and operational efficiency.

The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP®) recognized Memorial City Medical Center as one of 37 ACS NSQIP participating hospitals that have achieved meritorious outcomes for surgical patient care. The hospital was the only one in Houston, and one of two in Texas, to achieve the prestigious distinction.

Blue Cross/Blue Shield for Knee and Hip Replacements designated Memorial Hermann Southwest as a Blue Distinction Center for its expertise in delivering specialty care and for its commitment to providing better overall outcomes for knee and hip replacement procedures.
