CRMC joins the American Joint Replacement registry
Cullman Regional Medical Center is proud to announce that it has become a participant of the American Joint Replacement Registry.
“Joining the AJRR will help ensure that we can continue to provide patients with the best orthopaedic care possible,” said James Clements, CRMC President/CEO. “By participating with other sites in sharing data about performance and physician and patient experiences, we can help total joint replacement procedures become safer nationwide, while optimizing our own patients’ experiences here at CRMC.”
CRMC is one of only two hospitals in the State of Alabama that are participating in this registry, according to Orthopedic Surgeon and CRMC Medical Staff Immediate-Past President Vince Bergquist, MD who has been leading the initiative locally. “We are proud to be a part of an organization known for promoting the highest quality joint replacement practices,” Bergquist said.
Annually, CRMC orthopedic surgeons perform on average up to 300 total joints procedures at the fully accredited, 145-bed medical center which has been named a Blue Distinction Center by BlueCross & BlueShield for Total Knee & Hip Procedures.
