Grand View Hospital has been recognized as a “High Performer” for knee replacement, hip replacement, hip fractures, heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) by U.S. News and World Report. The 2022-23 Best Hospitals rating for procedures and conditions considers objective measures such as patient survival, patient safety, the quality of nursing care and the number of times a given procedure is performed. Generally, it is believed that the more surgeries a team performs, the better the outcomes for patients.
“We are committed to delivering safe, quality care to our patients,” said Doug Hughes, RN, BSN, MBA, President and CEO of Grand View Health. “The U.S. News designations for knee replacement, hip replacement and hip fracture are a testament to our expert orthopaedic clinical and support staff at Grand View Health’s Joint Replacement Center, which is part of Grand View Hospital in Sellersville.”
Upper Bucks Orthopaedics at Grand View Health offers comprehensive bone and joint services in addition to knee and hip surgery, including a sports medicine program and treatment for conditions impacting the shoulder, ankle, neck and spine as well as osteoarthritis. Orthopaedic care is complemented with robust physical therapy and rehabilitation services. The hospital features a fully dedicated joint replacement center dedicated to helping get patients back on their feet as quickly as possible while focusing on reducing the need for painkillers.
Grand View Hospital’s high performing ranking for COPD care recognizes the hospital’s pulmonary rehabilitation program. It works to reduce symptoms of COPD and other chronic respiratory conditions through individualized treatment plans that focus on disease management, breathing retraining, and strength and endurance.
The hospital’s high performing ranking for heart failure recognizes its commitment to ensuring patients receive the most appropriate treatment based on evidence-based guidelines. It also underlies the hospital’s strong partnerships with local heart specialists at Grand View Health Cardiology — Alderfer Travis and Buxmont Cardiology Associates.
