Joint Commission certifications bring distinction to TMC Ortho Teams
TMC Lakewood Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Center receives elite Joint Commission certification.
Sole facility in Missouri — and in KC Metro area — to earn Advanced Certification
TMC Lakewood has received The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for two joint replacement programs: Advanced Certification of Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement and Certification for Total Shoulder Replacement. Advanced certification recognizes the increased focus on clinical evidence-based patient care as it relates to pain management, quality of life, functional limitation and return to normal daily activities.
The evaluation focused on the orthopedic consult, pre-operative, intraoperative, and post-surgical care and follow-up.
TMC Lakewood was previously certified in Total Hips and Total Knees, but this is the first certification for Total Shoulder replacement. The certification demonstrates commitment to a higher standard of service, provides a framework for organizational structure and management, and enhances staff recruitment and development. This certification represents an elite recognition of the team’s level of commitment to using quality and performance improvement to affect patient outcomes.
