In 2015, Saint Anne’s became the first hospital in Bristol County, Massachusetts, to earn the Gold Seal certification by The Joint Commission for hip and knee replacement. In 2016, we became one of just three U.S. non-academic hospitals, and 16 hospitals overall, to earn The Joint Commission's advanced certification for hip and knee replacement, and earned our most recent re-certification in 2021.

Since 2011, Blue Cross Blue Shield has designated Saint Anne’s as a “Blue Distinction Center for Knee and Hip Replacement” for superior patient outcomes. We also earned the Women's Choice Award as one of America's Best Hospital for Orthopedics in 2017, 2018 and 2019, and our orthopedic surgery patients have consistently ranked the hospital at the top for patient and family satisfaction.

A Decade of Mako™ Robotic-Assisted Surgery.  In 2011, Saint Anne's was the first hospital in Massachusetts to offer innovative, Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery for joint replacement. Our orthopedic surgeons have performed more than 1,600 Mako procedures, including total knee replacement, partial knee resurfacing, and total hip replacement.
