Muve Facilities Are First ASCs in Pennsylvania to Achieve The Joint Commission Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Knee Replacement

Jan 7, 2021

ValueHealth, LLC is pleased to announce that its total joints hyperspecialty centers Muve Warminster and Muve West Chester are the first ambulatory surgery centers in the state of Pennsylvania to achieve Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Knee Replacement from The Joint Commission (TJC). According to TJC, there are only ten other ASCs in the United States with this certification. One of those ten facilities is Muve Lakeway, which was also the first facility in Texas to receive TJC Advanced Accreditation for Total Joint Surgery.

TJC’s Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Knee Replacement signifies a facility’s ability to meet strict, prescriptive standards and performance measures that encompass the entire continuum of care. TJC collects quarterly data from certified facilities to ensure these high levels of performance continue to be met. TJC Total Hip and Knee certification is also the only certification offered in collaboration with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS).

Muve Warminster and Muve West Chester will be part of the ValueHealth Network being developed in the Tri-State area in collaboration with insurers and regional brokers across all specialties and service lines, creating broad geographic adequacy to meet the needs of the payors and self-funded employers.

The Muve program has earned national recognition for its protocol-driven orthopaedic program, which delivers outstanding clinical outcomes in an optimized outpatient environment unparalleled in recovery guidance and patient experience. By incorporating ValueHealth’s data-driven surgical platform, Muve facilities are also able to follow a value-based model that results in predictable costs for patients and payors.

“At Muve Health, our mission is to improve how surgical healthcare is delivered,” said Rod Carbonell, President of Muve Health, LLC. “This Advanced Certification is proof that our carefully designed program is delivering the highest level of care and patient safety possible for patients undergoing a total hip or total knee replacement. We are so proud that our teams and surgeon partners wake up every day with a commitment to excellence.”
