Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 20, 2015
North Central Surgical Center Hospital today announced that it has received 5 stars for the quality of its total knee replacement, total hip replacement and spinal fusion care from Healthgrades, the leading online resource helping consumers make informed decisions in order to find the right doctor, the right hospital, and the right care. North Central Surgical Center Hospital has received 5 stars for total knee replacement for 5 years in a row (2012-2016), and has received 5 stars for total hip replacement for 3 years in a row (2014-2016). These achievements are part of new findings and data released today on Healthgrades.com and in the Healthgrades 2016 Report to the Nation. Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 33 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.
The new report demonstrates how clinical performance continues to differ dramatically between hospitals both nationally and regionally. This variation in care has a significant impact on health outcomes. For example, from 2012 through 2014, if all hospitals as a group performed similarly to hospitals receiving 5stars as a group, on average 222,392 lives could potentially have been saved and 166,086 complications could potentially have been avoided.* A 5-star rating indicates that North Central Surgical Center Hospital’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or performing the procedure being evaluated.
North Central Surgical Center Hospital has been serving the DFW Metroplex since 2005. It performs more than 11,000 surgical procedures in 10 modern operating rooms and three procedure rooms per year. Since opening, it has added spine surgery and total joint replacement to its available procedures, as well as 24-hour emergency care.

Specialties include bariatric, colorectal, orthopedic, plastic, and gastrointestinal surgeries, as well as pain management, gynecology, podiatry, and urology.
