You Can 'Expect the Best' in Orthopedic Care

The choices you make matter – especially when it comes to your healthcare.

The national BlueCross Blue Shield Association has recognized Lakeland HealthCare in St. Joseph to receive a Blue Distinction Center designation for Knee and Hip Replacement, demonstrating our commitment to providing safe, high-quality care.

Hospitals designated as a Blue Distinction Center are recognized for their expertise and efficiency in delivering specialty care. They have a proven track-record for delivering better results — including fewer complications and readmissions — than hospitals without this recognition.

Research shows Blue Distinction Centers demonstrate:

  • Better quality
  • Improved outcomes for patients
  • Lower rates of complications following certain orthopedic procedures
  • Lower rates of healthcare associated infections compared with their peers

Blue Distinction Centers for Knee and Hip Replacement provide a full range of orthopedic care services, including inpatient knee and hip replacement services as well as total knee replacement and total hip replacement surgeries.
