Five Star Treatment
Norman Regional gives our patients five-star quality treatment. Healthgrades® has named Norman Regional a five-star recipient in many areas of orthopedic care including:
- Five-Star Recipient for Total Knee Replacement for 7 Years in a Row (2010-2016)
- Five-Star Recipient for Hip Fracture Treatment for 9 Years in a Row (2008-2016)
- Five-Star Recipient for Back Surgery for 2 Years in a Row (2015-2016)
- Five-Star Recipient for Spinal Fusion Surgery in 2016
A 5-star rating indicates that Norman Regional’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or performing the procedure being evaluated. Of the 15 hospitals located within the Oklahoma City area, Healthgrades’ 2016 study reveals that although these hospitals are just minutes away from each other, risk-adjusted in-hospital complication rates for Total Knee Replacement ranged from 2.1% on the low end to 9.7% on the high end, which is a more than 4.6-fold difference in complication rates.
Our team of surgeons, nurses, therapists and more are dedicated to providing this five-star treatment every day!
