Why Choose The Joint & Spine Center

An Exceptional Patient Experience

The Christ Hospital Joint & Spine Center believes family and friends are an important part of every patient's healing process and we are committed to a patient- and family-centered care philosophy. As part of this commitment, we have eliminated visiting hours and encourage loved ones to stay and to participate in care along with the patient, nursing staff and physicians. To make this easier, we even allow a loved-one to stay in the room over night, should they prefer to.

And this philosophy is working - patient satisfaction among our joint and spine patients consistently scores in the top give to eight percent of the nation according to Press Ganey, the nation's leading patient satisfaction surveyor.
