Performance Data

SSM Health Monroe Hospital has been recognized as a Best Hospital for 2018-19 by U.S. News & World Report. The annual Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 29th year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or for common elective procedures. SSM Health Monroe Hospital was recognized as a Best Hospital of 2018-19 for Knee Replacement Orthopedic procedure.

Experienced surgeons, nurses, physical therapists and even volunteers work together to achieve results that allow knee replacement patients to get up and moving the same day as surgery. Comparison of SSM Health Monroe Hospital's joint replacement results to other joint replacement centers nationwide testify to the level of excellence SSM Health Monroe Hospital has achieved. The team has also received high-achievement results in fracture care, minor hand and foot procedures, knee and shoulder arthroscopy, as well as hip, anterior hip and shoulder replacement procedures.

For the 2018-19 rankings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 25 specialties, procedures and conditions. The U.S. News Best Hospitals methodologies are based largely or entirely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.

Best Hospitals was produced by U.S. News with RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C.
