The team at Missouri Baptist Joint Replacement Center is dedicated to guiding patients throughout the joint replacement experience. Ranked among the best regional hospitals for Orthopedics by U.S. News and World Report, the Joint Replacement Center at Missouri Baptist features a coordinated, comprehensive pre-surgery assessment; patient-specific education; excellent nursing care; and intensive physical therapy. From the moment a patient decides to have joint replacement surgery through discharge from the facility, the dedicated interdisciplinary ortho team works to develop and coordinate a customized plan of care. Patients are treated as “well” during their stay and taught that recovery is a shared responsibility.
"In anticipation of Medicare bundles we launched a comprehensive joint replacement program. We have seen reductions in length of stay from three days to less than two, improved patient engagement, a significant reduction in all-cause readmission rates, and improved patient satisfaction scores. While this is not all due to Wellbe, the team believes it plays a very significant role in helping us achieve our goals."
