United Healthcare Designation
UnitedHealth Premium® Specialty Center Designation for Total Joint Replacement
New York Methodist Hospital receives recognition as a Total Joint Replacement Specialty Center by UnitedHealthcare. UnitedHealthcare developed the UnitedHealth Premium Specialty Center designation program to give its members information about, and access to, total joint replacement hospitals meeting rigorous quality criteria. This designation is based on detailed information about specialized training, practice capabilities and outcomes that we submit to UnitedHealthcare and is designed to help members make informed decisions should they need total joint replacement.
To receive this designation, New York Methodist met extensive quality criteria based on nationally recognized medical standards and expert advice. The criteria incorporate measurements of breadth and depth of care, staff experience, emergency care, quality and outcomes reporting.
UnitedHealth Premium Total Joint specialty centers are identified to UnitedHealthcare network physicians, employers and members through a variety of media, including myuhc.com®, employer materials and local press releases. This program helps consumers recognize that New York Methodist is a community leader in total joint replacement.
