Baptist Memorial Hospital-Collierville, with support from Campbell Clinic, recently earned its Joint Commission Seal of Approval for Advanced Certification of Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement, placing the hospital as one of 45 hospitals in the nation with this distinction.

The advanced certification is for Joint-Commission-accredited hospitals, critical access hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers seeking to elevate the quality, consistency and safety of their services and patient care, according to the Joint Commission.

Baptist Collierville underwent what the Joint Commission characterized as a rigorous inspection in March. Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with advanced disease-specific care standards and total hip and total knee replacement requirements, including orthopedic consultation, and pre-operative, intraoperative and post-surgical orthopedic surgeon follow-up care.
