Awards and Quality Scores

joint commission accreditation

Joint Commission

The OSS Orthopaedic Hospital received its Joint Commission Accreditation indicating that the hospital complies with the highest national standards for safety and quality of care. The OSS Orthopaedic Hospital also received Joint Commission Disease-Specific Certification for hip replacement, knee replacement, spine surgery and shoulder replacement.  We are one of only three that are certified for shoulder replacements, and the only hospital that is specifically accredited for hip, knee, spine and shoulder surgery.  This indicates that these programs all comply with the most stringent standards of performance as established by the Joint Commission to help ensure the best care and outcomes for patients needing a joint replacement or spine surgery.

Healthgrades is a leading online resource for information about physicians and hospitals, providing consumers with information they need to make more informed decisions such as the provider’s training and experience, patient satisfaction scores and hospital quality.   Healthgrades evaluates performance by using a scoring method for 10 patient experience measures, using data collected from a patient experience survey of the hospital’s own patients. The survey questions focus on patients’ perspectives of their care in the hospital based on cleanliness and noise levels in patient rooms and factors such as pain management and responsiveness to their needs.  The measures also include whether a patient would recommend the hospital to friends or family.  



Press Ganey

The Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award is a nationally-recognized symbol of achievement in healthcare. Presented annually, the award honors organizations who consistently sustained performance in the top 5% of all Press Ganey clients for each reporting period during the course of one year. Press Ganey’s mission is to support healthcare providers in understanding and improving the entire patient experience. Every patient who stays in the OSS Hospital receives a survey from Press Ganey regarding their experience with us. Press Ganey processes this data and shares it with OSS Health – what we have done well and where we need improvement. We take this very seriously and use this data to improve patient experience.

Physician Hospital of the Year, 2017

Physician Hospitals of America (PHA) presented the OSS Orthopaedic Hospital with the Physician Hospital of the Year award.  We are honored to be recognized by our peers in the physician-owned hospital community for our efforts to provide the highest level of medical care for our community.


Excellence in Care Achievement Award, 2017

The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) presented OSS Health with the Excellence in Care Achievement Award for our commitment to the community in combatting the opioid epidemic.  We greatly decreased the number of opioids prescribed in our hospital to ensure our patients weren’t in pain and weren’t left with excess pills that could get into the wrong hands.

Becker’s Hospital Review

In January, 2016, Becker’s Hospital Review named the OSS Hospital one of the 49 best overall patient-rated hospitals.  That indicates that 90% of our patients gave an overall rating of 9 or 10 (the two highest scores) on their *HCAHPS survey.
