Woodwinds gets nod for orthopedics

Woodwinds Health Campus' orthopedics department received its latest round of national-level accolades last week.

On July 16, Woodbury's hospital was named by U.S. News and World Report as one of the best Twin Cities hospitals in orthopedics.

"Recognition as one of the U.S. News and World Report 'Best Hospitals' reflects the deep commitment and dedication of our employees," said Scott North, senior vice president and president of HealthEast Acute Care Hospitals.

U.S. News evaluates hospitals across 16 specialities, the criteria for which include patient survival and safety data, and nursing adequacy levels.
