Monday, June 11, 2018
CLEVELAND – University Hospitals (UH) announced today that Walmart has selected UH Cleveland Medical Center as a national Center of Excellence to provide joint-replacement surgery and orthopedic care for Walmart employees and their families.

As a Center of Excellence, UH Cleveland Medical Center serves as a surgical care site for Walmart’s eligible health plan members. Walmart chooses Centers of Excellence through a highly selective process. Selected hospitals must demonstrate the ability to provide excellent care, a dedication to addressing the root-cause of a patient’s condition, and an outstanding patient experience at a great value to both the patient and the patient’s employer-sponsored health benefit plan.
 
“Our associates are very important to us and the Centers of Excellence program is one way we help ensure they and their families receive the highest-level of quality care available,” said Lisa Woods, senior director of U.S. benefits at Walmart. “University Hospitals’ dedication to patient-centered, evidence-based medicine makes them a great addition to our Centers of Excellence program.”
