Covina, Calif.-based Emanate Health is the first in the state to be awarded the DNV Orthopedic Center of Excellence designation.
To achieve this distinction, a hospital must obtain advanced certification with DNV in at least three of their orthopedic service line programs, according to a Jan. 17 news release. Emanate Health has achieved advanced certification for hip and knee replacement procedures, spine surgery and shoulder surgery.
"Emanate Health is honored to be the first in the state of California and on the West Coast to achieve designation as a DNV Orthopedic Center of Excellence," Roger Sharma, president and CEO of Emanate Health, said in the release. "This designation affirms the top-quality orthopedic services we provide and furthers our goal to bring the best care closer to home for patients in our community."
