SSM Orthopedics at DePaul Health Center

SSM DePaul Health Center is home to the Joint Replacement Center (JRC). The JRC performs more primary knee and hip replacements combined than any other hospital in the St. Louis region. Evidence has shown that this level of experience and expertise leads to better patient outcomes. Located on the campus of SSM DePaul Health Center, the JRC also offers patients a first-class experience with hotel-style amenities. Features include all private rooms (with sleeper for overnight guests), nurses and therapists who specialize in joint care, an aggressive rehab program, on-going education to aid in your recovery and a nurse manager who coordinates every part of your stay. That’s why our patient satisfaction scores consistently rank in the top 10 percent of hospitals in the nation.

In 2009, the SSM Orthopedics - Joint Replacement Center (JRC) earned the Gold Seal of Approval™ for health care quality. This is the first time the Joint Commission has awarded a Missouri hospital with Disease-Specific Care Certification for knee and hip replacement.
