They reflect ongoing and sustained excellence as a healthcare facility in every aspect of its operations and patient care. Staff and team members, many of whom have been here from the opening of the hospital 15 years ago, will tell you that South Texas Spine and Surgical Hospital has always been this way, and that’s entirely true. There is a passion for taking great care of patients at South Teas Spine and Surgical Hospital that is unsurpassed and unwavering over time. It is a very special place,” stated orthopedic surgeon and hospital partner, Ajeya P. Joshi, M.D.

Unlike other hospital quality analyses, Healthgrades evaluates hospital quality for conditions and procedures based solely on clinical outcomes. We measure hospital performance for the most common in-hospital procedures and conditions and adjust for each patient’s risk factors, such as age, gender and medical condition.

Our analysis is based on more than 45 million Medicare medical claims records for the most recent three-year time period available from nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide.
