St. Joseph's Medical Center buildingWe are proud to announce UM St. Joseph Medical Center was voted #17 Top Hospital in the United States for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement by While there were four other Maryland Hospitals mentioned in the Top 200, SJMC was the only local hospital honored in the Top 20.
