Orthopedic Awards

Emory Decatur Hospital (formerly DeKalb Medical) has been recognized as one of “America's 100 Best Hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery™” in 2018 by Healthgrades. Healthgrades is the leading online resource for comprehensive information about hospitals and physicians.

The achievement is part of findings released recently in the Healthgrades 2018 Report to the Nation. The new report demonstrates how clinical performance continues to differ dramatically between hospitals nationally, regionally and at the local level, and the impact that this variation may have on health outcomes. Emory Decatur Hospital’s achievements are included in the 2018 Healthgrades Report to the nation. The new report assesses inpatient procedures and positive health outcomes. The complete report and detailed study methodology can be found at www.healthgrades.com/quality.

Joint Replacement Award
Orthopedic Surgery Award
Five Star for Total Hip Replacement
Five Star for Total Knee Replacement
Five Star for Hip Fracture Treatment
America's 100 Best Orthopedic Surgery

"These awards reflect the superior care delivered to each of our orthopedic patients on a daily basis through our Joint Solutions Program.
