Alliance Partner Named Center of Excellence in Hernia Surgery

Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center and St. Joseph’s Westgate Medical Center have each been designated as a Center of Excellence in Hernia Surgery by the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC). These two hospitals are the only ones in Arizona to receive the designation so far in 2019.

In January, both St. Joseph’s Hospital and St. Joseph’s Westgate earned the Robotic Center of Excellence from the SRC for meeting rigorous standards for delivering high-quality medical treatment, including perioperative, surgical and long-term follow-up care.

Established in 2003, SRC is an internationally recognized patient safety organization dedicated to recognizing and refining surgical care. SRC is the leading administrator of quality improvement and accreditation programs for surgeons and hospitals worldwide.
