Third Gold Seal of Approval for Total Hip, Total Knee and Total Shoulder Certification

The Joint Commission once again awards Mercy Health Saint Mary’s its Gold Seal of Approval for Total Hip, Total Knee and Total Shoulder Certification. Valid for two years, Mercy Health Saint Mary’s is currently the only organization in the state of Michigan to have earned the gold seal for Total Hip, Total Knee and Total Shoulder.

According to The Joint Commission, the certification provides a framework to assure excellent patient outcomes; establishes a consistent approach to care to reduce variation and risk of error; provides a pathway to excellence. Gold Seal status also allows for clinical collaboration across the continuum of care between the hospital and the surgeon’s office.

“Essentially, this Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission demonstrates Mercy Health Saint Mary’s commitment to a higher standard of clinical service to our patients,” said Laura Goodfellow, orthopedic nurse navigator, Mercy Health Saint Mary’s.

This certification was received with no deficiencies. Mercy Health Saint Mary’s first earned the Gold Seal in 2014, was recertified in 2016 and again in 2019.
