Mercy Medical Center - Des Moines is proud to be recognized by U.S. News & World Report as high performing in hip replacement and knee replacement for 2017-18!
The thought of having surgery can be stressful and overwhelming. We’re here to help you every step of the way. Our care team works together to make sure you have the best outcomes after joint replacement surgery. Our Joint Camp Program for hips & knees is designed to educate, prepare and support you throughout the entire joint replacement process.
The reason we offer this coordinated approach to joint replacement surgery is simple: it benefits you! Our patients are reporting higher satisfaction scores, and more are returning home after surgery (as opposed to a skilled care facility). A better experience with better results- it’s what you can expect from Mercy Orthopedics and Joint Replacement.
Blue Distinction Center+ for Knee and Hip Replacement
You don’t have to take our word for it! Mercy’s Central Campus and West Lakes hospitals are proud to be designated as a Blue Distinction Center+ for Knee and Hip Replacement by Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Iowa. This distinction is proof that Mercy’s joint replacement program demonstrates better quality, improved outcomes for patients, and lower rates of complications and readmissions than other hospitals.
Program highlighted in Becker's Hospital Review
Mercy's Joint Replacement Program was recently highlighted in Becker's Hospital Review as one of ten hospitals taking their total joint replacement programs to the next level. Mercy was recognized for initiatives in data analytics, bundled payments, quality improvement and patient satisfaction programs— all which lead to better care for our joint replacement patients!
