The Miriam Hospital has been named by Becker’s Hospital Review as one of 100 hospitals across the country with great orthopedic programs. The hospital is home to the Total Joint Center, a program of the Orthopedic Institute at The Miriam, Rhode Island, and Newport hospitals.

Hospitals included in Becker’s 2016 ranking have received recognition for excellence across various publications, industry-leading organizations, and accrediting organizations.

“Achieving this ranking is great acknowledgement of the unprecedented integrated way The Miriam Hospital delivers total joint replacement for the hip, knee and shoulder,” said John A.
