Total Care for Hips and Knees

  • Brought to you by LifeWise and Providence

    LifeWise aligned with Providence Health & Services for a number of reasons including our shared commitment to quality care, lower costs and healthier Oregonians. We know working closely with Providence will provide distinctive opportunities to develop programs that directly benefit your health and lead to a more sustainable healthcare system. The Total Joint Care Package is an example of such a program that is delivering excellent results through a coordinated approach to hip and knee replacements. And as a LifeWise member you are now part of a select group with access to this care package.

    Experience matters and Providence performs more hip and knee replacement surgeries than any other health system in Oregon. That experience translates into excellent outcomes for Providence’s patients. In fact, studies1 show that their joint patients are happier, healthier and stronger after surgery than patients at many other facilities.

    The Total Joint Care Package is a program designed by orthopedic specialists and interdisciplinary care teams at Providence Orthopedic Institute to provide highly coordinated, personal care from pre-surgery to recovery. When you choose the Total Joint Care Package, they'll work with you to help you go home sooner and get back to the activities you enjoy.

    What you can expect with the Total Joint Care Package

    Providence and the participating physicians stand behind their commitment to give you high-quality care. You can expect:

    • Peace of mind. You’re in good hands: Providence performs the most joint replacement surgeries in Oregon, resulting in consistent outcomes, positive results, and better patient experiences.1 
    • A better experience: Providence’s patient satisfaction scores are among the highest in the nation. They consistently receive positive feedback from patients. As one patient said, “The timeline of my experience that day was so impressive. It still seems hard to believe that I was walking on a new hip less than 12 hours after being admitted to the hospital."2 
    • A faster return to the activities you enjoy: Providence’s total joint replacement patients report functional improvement ratings just three months after their surgeries that are equivalent to national standards expected six months after surgery.3
