Northside Hospital Forsyth has once again earned The Joint Commission’s (TJC) Gold Seal of Approval® for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement Certification.
“This certification is a recognition of all the hard work done by so many teams and individuals to provide excellence in patient care in regard to joint replacement surgery," said Dr. Kenneth J. Kress, Arthritis & Total Joint Specialists, a Northside network provider.
Dr. Kress is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, who performs hip and knee replacement surgery at Northside Hospital Forsyth. "I am so fortunate to be part of an organization that constantly strives to put patient safety and outcomes as their primary focus," he added.
Northside Hospital Forsyth is a regional leader in same-day joint replacement, performing more surgeries than any other Georgia hospital.
The TJC Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care. Northside Hospital Forsyth received its two-year certification after undergoing a voluntary review of its clinical programs across the continuum of care for total hip and total knee replacement surgery and demonstrated its continuous compliance with TJC’s performance standards.
