Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall Named as a 2023 Outpatient Joint Replacement Excellence Award™ Recipient by Healthgrades


Newburgh, NY – May 9, 2023 – Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall (MSLC) announced today that it has been recognized as a 2023 Outpatient Joint Replacement Excellence Award™ recipient by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients. This achievement reflects Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall’s outstanding clinical outcomes for outpatient knee and hip replacement and distinguishes Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall in the top 5% nationwide for Outpatient Joint Replacement.

“I am so proud of the MSLC Total Joint Replacement team on this well-deserved achievement,” said Daniel Maughan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall. “This program has grown tremendously in recent years due to the excellence of our orthopedic surgeons specializing in joint replacements, for whom I extend my sincere gratitude. To be named among the top 5% in the nation is a tribute to the truly outstanding care our patients receive and their exceptional clinical outcomes. The collective compassion and expertise of all those involved in this program, from the surgeons, to nurses, physical medicine, case managers, and every team member in between, is why MSLC is among the Top 5% of hospitals in the nation, and now in Outpatient Joint Replacement.”

Healthgrades analyzed patient outcomes at short-term acute care hospitals throughout the country that offer joint replacement in the outpatient environment. This analysis included data from 2019 through 2021 to identify the top-performing hospitals for outpatient knee and hip replacement. Healthgrades’s analysis revealed significant variation in patient outcomes between hospitals that achieved a 2023 Outpatient Joint Replacement Excellence Award and those that did not during the three-year study period.

“Through the industry’s first outcomes-based outpatient award, Healthgrades is excited to recognize Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall for their ongoing commitment to providing high-quality care to patients undergoing outpatient joint replacement,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “Patients can feel confident that recipients of the 2023 Outpatient Joint Replacement Excellence Award have demonstrated their ability to deliver consistently exceptional outcomes.”
