Saint Vincent is the only hospital in the Erie region to offer this technology. In addition, Saint Vincent’s Orthopaedic Institute will be expanding its use to include MAKO® total knee replacement in June.
Nationally recognized Orthopaedic care
The Saint Vincent Hospital was recently named by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as one of 36 hospitals nationwide with the lowest rates of patient readmission following hip and knee replacement surgery. Saint Vincent Hospital was ranked 14th in the country and is the only hospital in western Pennsylvania to be included on the CMS list.
This recognition was made possible by the multidisciplinary team of orthopaedic providers at the hospital and the Orthopaedic Surgeons at Saint Vincent Orthopaedic Institute.
