Mary Washington Hospital Ranks Among Top 3 in Virginia for Joint Replacement

Fredericksburg, VA (May 10, 2022) – Mary Washington Hospital (MWH) is among the Top 3 joint replacement centers in Virginia according to a new analysis released by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians, and health systems. MWH also received the Joint Replacement Excellence Award™ for a 6th straight year (2017-2022).

Healthgrades evaluated clinical performance for nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide focusing on eight key specialties across a mix of chronic, urgent, and planned clinical areas. Hospitals recognized as among the Top Ranked in their state by Healthgrades are providing patients with measurably superior clinical outcomes. From 2018-2020, patients treated at hospitals receiving a Healthgrades state ranking for Joint Replacement have on average 60.8% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that were not state ranked for Joint Replacement. *
