Welcome to The Christ Hospital Joint & Spine Center of Excellence (COE) program. We have established COE programs for hip and knee replacement procedures through a collaborative effort between highly-respected orthopedic surgeons,  nurse navigators, and other clinical experts. 

From your very first phone call to your final physician visit, our team works together to ensure you receive seamless care and a patient experience that is the very best in the country.

Mason City Schools associates covered on the health plan, as well as their dependents, are eligible to take advantage of The Christ Hospital’s Center of Excellence Program for joint replacement procedures. Associates that participate in the COE program will have a $250 health savings account deposit.
