Rapid Recovery Hip & Knee Replacement
Florida Hospital Zephyrhills is the only hospital in East Pasco to offer Rapid Recovery Hip and Knee Replacement. Using a combination of advanced surgical and anesthesia techniques, coupled with the latest implant technology, surgeons at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills are able to get their hip and knee replacement patients up and working with physical therapy within four to five hours following surgery. On average, half of these patients go home within 24 hours of surgery.
Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Program
Florida Hospital Zephyrhills is participating in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program. The program is a new payment model being tested for episodes of care related to total knee and total hip replacements under Medicare, with the goal of supporting better and more efficient care coordination for patients undergoing the most common inpatient surgeries.
The Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model continues to pay providers under existing payment systems, but holds hospitals responsible for the quality and costs from the initial procedure through 90 days after the patient is discharged. Through the CJR program, CMS expects improved coordination of care among hospitals, physicians and post-acute care providers – from surgery to recovery –to benefit patients and result in better outcomes and fewer complications.
