St. Vincent's Orthopedic Services
A National Model for Care
St. Vincent’s approach to orthopedic care has become a model for other health systems around the country. We believe in a different experience for patients and that starts well before they enter our doors for surgery. The skilled surgeons who have privileges at St. Vincent’s have cared for retired veterans, professional athletes, America’s heroes at Walter Reed Medical Center and been orthopedic consultants to the White House and Pentagon. We boast a world class team and our patients enjoy high quality care from some of the very best orthopedic specialists in the nation.
Centers of Excellence
St. Vincent’s Riverside and Southside are home to award winning Orthopedic Centers of Excellence (COE), recognized by the Joint Commission. It means these facilities have a seal of approval from the nation’s premier healthcare accreditation agency. St. Vincent’s Clay County has not been open long enough to earn its COE designation but will apply when permitted.
It stands to reason that the more someone does something the more proficient they become. When it comes to joint replacements, St. Vincent’s is continuously ranked first in the state of Florida for volume. Our affiliated surgeons are specialized in joint replacements and have become a trusted partner to thousands and thousands of patients--- many who travel long distances to be seen by these physicians at St. Vincent’s.
