June 15, 2012
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 15, 2012) – TriStar Centennial recently received the UnitedHealth Premium® Total Joint Replacement Specialty Center designation in recognition of quality care.
“We are very excited that our joint program received this designation,” said Jeff LeCates, TriStar Centennial’s director of rehabilitation. “Our experienced Joint Center team provides pre-surgical patient education, performs a range of joint replacement procedures, and provides specialized recovery care in our recently expanded orthopaedic area, all with the shared goal of helping our total joint replacement patients regain maximum mobility and get back to an active lifestyle after they return home.”
TriStar Centennial physicians work with a team of specially trained nurses, physical therapists, pain management experts, case managers, and dieticians to focus on patient wellness and quick recovery. Total joint replacement procedures offered include those for the shoulder, hip, and knee.
UnitedHealthcare® developed the UnitedHealth Premium specialty center program to give its members information and access to hospitals meeting rigorous quality criteria. The designation is based on detailed information about specialized training, practice capabilities, and outcomes, and is designed to help members make informed decisions should they need total joint replacement care.
To receive this designation, TriStar Centennial met extensive quality and outcomes criteria based on nationally recognized medical standards and expert advice. The criteria incorporate measurements of breadth and depth of care, staff experience, emergency care, quality and outcomes reporting.
The UnitedHealth Premium designation means patients can depend on TriStar Centennial for conscientious, reliable total joint replacement care. To learn more about orthopaedic and rehabilitation services offered, visit TriStarHealth.com and select TriStar Centennial or call 615-342-1919.
