Overlake Medical Center & Clinics is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as a 2024 Outpatient Orthopedic Surgery Excellence Award™ recipient by Healthgrades, the leading resource consumers use in selecting a hospital or physician. Additionally, this achievement was presented alongside a five-star award for Outpatient Total Hip Replacement.

“This achievement is a superb example of how teamwork—rallied behind a mission to provide compassionate care—can truly make a difference and help dramatically improve the lives of our patients,” says Trevor Scott, MD, who serves as the director of Overlake’s Total Joint Program. “We want our patients to know that they will be well taken care of—from start to finish—and this achievement is reflective of that commitment.”

To identify the top-performing hospitals for outpatient orthopedic surgery, Healthgrades analyzed patient outcomes at short-term, acute care facilities nationwide offering procedures in an outpatient environment, including back and neck surgery, knee replacement, hip replacement, and rotator cuff surgery. Healthgrades’ analysis found that patients treated at hospitals that have been recognized for excellence in outpatient orthopedic surgery have a demonstrably better chance at a smooth recovery than those treated at hospitals not recognized by Healthgrades.  

In fact, between 2020 and 2022, patients treated at hospitals receiving the Outpatient Orthopedic Surgery Excellence Award™ had, on average, a 39.7% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated at hospitals that did not receive the award.*    

“Overlake Medical Center exemplifies what it means to be a leader by delivering consistently superior outcomes across key outpatient procedures,” says Brad Bowman, MD, chief medical officer and head of data science at Healthgrades. “Patients having outpatient orthopedic surgery at Overlake Medical Center should feel confident in their decision to seek care from a facility with top marks in their procedure.”
