Awards and Accreditation

Each patient, each family, each and every time.

Hall of Fame Elite Care Center

North Central has been designated as one of 25 facilities across the country as an Elite Care Center for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Providers are judged on their outcomes data, patient experience, and clinical leadership. Hall of Fame Health launched the Hall of Fame Elite Care Center designation for providers demonstrating superior outcomes in joint replacement in December of 2021. The organization, formed in October 2020 by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, aims to provide access to health plans with in-network availability to high-quality hospitals, physicians, and orthopedic centers for former NFL players, employees, and their families.

The Joint Commission: Accredited Hospital

North Central Surgical Center is accredited by The Joint Commission. By demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for healthcare quality and safety, North Central Surgical Center has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™.

The Joint Commission: Advanced Total Hip & Knee Replacement Certification

It’s official! The Joint Commission has awarded North Central Surgical Center with The Joint Commission Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Knee Replacement (THKR) for another 2 years! The Joint Commission offers this certification in collaboration with the AAOS and the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR). This Advanced Certification program helps healthcare organizations develop consistent communication and collaboration among all healthcare providers involved in the care of the patient — from the pre-surgical orthopedic consultation with their surgeon to the intraoperative, hospitalization or ASC admission, rehabilitation activities, and then the follow-up visit with the orthopedic surgeon.

During this last certification cycle, North Central Surgical enhanced its program with improvements in the quality of post-discharge patient contact. In addition to our regular post-op phone call, total hip and knee replacement patients now receive periodic automated messages asking about their progress. If the patient’s reply indicates a need, they receive a follow-up by a member of our team. This process went into effect on July 15th, 2022, and is already showing promise in areas of outcomes management and patient satisfaction.
