The History of Hughston Hospital
The Hughston Campus is the result of one man's dream of a world-class orthopedic referral and research center. One that would improve the treatment of activity related orthopedic conditions and disorders not just for athletes but for people from all walks of life. The dreamer was the late Jack C. Hughston, M.D. His dream is now a reality because of the efforts of hundreds of professionals who caught his vision and shared it. The Hughston Campus is known for its expertise in the treatment of conditions and disorders of the knee, hip, shoulder, hand, elbow and the back and spine. Patients from across America and around the world visit Hughston for diagnosis and treatment.
Hughston Hospital was the nation’s first hospital designed specifically to treat patients with musculoskeletal injuries or disorders. Today, the 100-bed, private room, specialty hospital is nationally recognized for delivering outstanding clinical quality and the highest levels of customer service.
Hughston Hospital also has the lowest infection rate in the country. Something the patient care services team prides themselves on and strives to maintain year after year.
Fully accredited by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), Hughston Hospital provides excellence in comprehensive orthopedic care and rehabilitation services through a highly specialized team of professionals using the latest technology and research to care for people of every age and ability and every level of musculoskeletal injury or disorder.
Even more important than the latest technology may be the fact that the commitment to quality care has remained the top priority throughout the years. The hospital consistently ranks among the top one percent in customer service and satisfaction. Our CARE program, concierge amenity program and employees who go the extra mile for patients help ensure their stay is comfortable and pleasant.
