St. Cloud Makes the 2016-2017 “Best Hospital” List for Orthopedic Procedures


In early August, the orthopedic specialty services division at St. Cloud Hospital (where our specialists have formed healthcare-related partnerships) was ranked #32 out of 50 Best Hospitals for Orthopedics in the 2016-2017 US News and World Report. The hospital as a whole ranked third best in the state.

Compared to all 5,000 hospitals that were evaluated, we received the highest marks possible for our high staffing ratio of nurses to patients, extra points for providing state-certified trauma care, and a full score for utilizing advanced technologies.

“Recognitions like these show that when everyone on our team works together to make patient outcome and family support our number one priority, the results are distinguishing,” said St. Cloud Orthopedics Clinic Administrator, Bill Worzala.

We’re grateful to be among the list, along with our colleagues at St. Cloud Hospital. Here’s to keeping specialty orthopedic care focused on the individual patient!
