Phoenix Specialty Hospital Awarded Numerous Accolades for Clinical Excellence

The CORE Institute Specialty Hospital, a multi-award winning musculoskeletal specialty hospital in Phoenix, announced it has achieved numerous accolades for clinical excellence, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor. Among The CORE Institute Specialty Hospital’s distinctions are Specialty Excellence Awards, placing the hospital in the top 10% of the nation for Joint Replacement and the top 5% in the nation for Patient Safety. These achievements place The CORE Institute Specialty Hospital in the upper echelon of hospitals nationally for specialty care and reflect the organization’s commitment to consistently delivering the best care possible.

With these latest accolades, The CORE Institute Specialty Hospital has distinguished itself again by becoming the only hospital in Arizona to receive the Joint Replacement Excellence Award 5 years in a row, a 5-star rating for Total Knee Replacement 5 years in a row and a 5-star rating for Spinal Fusion Surgery 10 years in a row.

“Receiving these awards is a testament to the commitment of our expert teams to fulfill the mission and vision of our hospital on behalf of this community,” said Eric Tomlon, MBA, MSHA, FACHE and CEO of The CORE Institute Specialty Hospital. “Over the last decade, we have been leading the way in Arizona to reduce costs and improve outcomes for musculoskeletal care. Through these efforts, The CORE Institute Specialty Hospital has become a recognized destination for orthopedic and spine care for patients both nationally and internationally. We are very proud of this recognition, as it validates the hard work and focus our employees, physicians and partners put in every day to make sure our patients have the best clinical outcomes and experience.”

Healthgrades evaluates hospitals solely on clinical outcomes: risk-adjusted mortality and complications. By focusing on what matters most, patient outcomes, Healthgrades ratings provide critical feedback for both patients and hospitals. By offering easy access to objective performance measures, Healthgrades gives consumers the information they need to find a hospital that excels in providing the care they need. And, by shining a light on strengths and weaknesses, Healthgrades ratings help direct hospitals to opportunities for clinical improvement. The 2024 hospital assessment evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 35 common conditions and procedures at approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide to identify the top performers.

The 2024 Healthgrades analysis revealed that the variation in performance among hospitals continues to widen, making it increasingly important to seek care at top-rated programs. From 2020 through 2022, if all hospitals as a group performed similarly to five-star hospitals, on average, 215,667 lives could potentially have been saved, and 149,521 patients could have avoided potential complications.*

“Healthgrades congratulates The CORE Institute Specialty Hospital for being a national leader and demonstrating a deep commitment to providing high-quality care to all patients,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “Your dedication, expertise, and tireless efforts have not only set you apart but have also positively impacted the lives of countless patients.”
