Top 146 hospitals for total knee replacements, per Healthgrades


Healthgrades has released its inaugural list of top hospitals for outpatient total knee replacements in 2023 and 2024, according to a May 9 press release. 

The list comes as more Americans are shifting hip and knee replacements to the outpatient setting, with 500,000 Medicare patients undergoing the procedures on an outpatient basis between 2019 and 2021. 

Healthgrades based its rankings exclusively on clinical outcomes. Patients undergoing a knee replacement at one of the top 146 hospitals have an 85 percent lower chance of experiencing one or more complications than patients treated at one-star hospitals, according to the release.
