Elective Surgery + Procedures We understand the present concerns about COVID-19 might still be causing some hesitation in scheduling or rescheduling a surgery or procedure. Our team has always championed a culture of safety and patient-focused orthopedic and interventional pain care at all our facilities, and we continue to be proactive in updating our protocols as COVID-19 has evolved. Focusing on the patient first and foremost, Optim Surgery Center and Optim Medical Center-Tattnall have become some of the most awarded and accredited facilities in the region for safety, quality, and compassion in delivering world class care. Optim Surgery Center is accredited by the Association for Ambulatory Health Care, which measures the quality of its services and performance against nationally recognized Standards. Optim Medical Center-Tattnall was recently DNV-GL Accredited and Certified for Quality and Patient Safety as an Orthopedic Center of Excellence for Hip and Knee Replacement, Shoulder Surgery, and Spine Surgery. Optim Medical Center-Tattnall has been named by Healthgradesas one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement™ year after year. Other consistent recognitions by Healthgrades include: Joint Replacement Excellence Award™ (2014 – 2021) Named Among the Top 5% in the Nation for Joint Replacement (2014 – 2020) Named Among the Top 10% in the Nation for Joint Replacement (2014 – 2021) Five-Star Recipient for Total Knee Replacement (2012 – 2021) Five-Star Recipient for Total Hip Replacement (2014 – 2021) Five-Star Recipient for Spinal Fusion Surgery (2016 – 2021) Patient Safety Excellence Award (2017, 2019, 2020) Prior to COVID-19 and still today, Optim Surgery Center and Optim Medical Center-Tattnall remain a uniquely attractive option in the region for patients in need of orthopedic surgery and interventional pain procedures. Surgical patients in an Optim Health System surgical facility can expect less exposure to possible viruses and general illnesses due to the focus on musculoskeletal care and elective surgeries and procedures versus a larger general acute care hospital. Reduced exposure is widely established as one of the ways to greatly reduce the potential spread of COVID-19 and other viruses and illnesses. Safety and high-quality care are our top priorities. We continue to be vigilant in applying our enhanced safety protocols. We are serious about protecting the health and well-being of our patients, our employees and medical staff, and everyone in the communities we serve and share.
