Eligible program members can elect to receive enhanced coverage for hip or knee replacement at a COE provider. Patients choosing Holy Cross will be supported by a patient navigator that will work to ensure a pleasant experience and will assist with transition of care arrangements for both local and traveling patients.

“GE has taken a leadership role in how employers are supporting the drive for healthcare providers to deliver better quality and higher patient satisfactionat lower cost. We are proud to be their trusted partner,” said Holy Cross Hospital President and Chief Executive Officer Patrick A. Taylor, MD, MBA.

Holy Cross hospital consistently ranks among the nation’s top hospitals for orthopedic services and joint replacement due to its low complication rates and better than expected outcomes. U.S. News & World Report recently named Holy Cross Hospital a nationally high-performing hospital in both hip and knee replacement surgery.

Holy Cross Hospital is also one of 25 among the nation’s roughly 3,400 hospitals, and the only one in South Florida, to be recognized by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services as performing better than the U.S. national rate for avoiding both 30-day risk standardized readmission and complications following total hip and total knee replacement surgery.
