Patient Centered Value System at the Bone and Joint Center

The Patient Centered Value System (PCVS) designs hospital resources and staff around the needs of patients and families, rather than around internal departments.

The main goal of PCVS is to provide care based on each patient’s needs and desires.

What does this mean for patients of the Bone and Joint Center at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital?

Patient-Centered Bone and Joint Care

PCVS for people with hip and knee arthritis focuses on the entire patient care experience.

  • A homey, relaxed setting to reduce anxiety and promote healing

This approach of viewing all bone and joint care through the eyes of patients and families helps improve:

One-Stop Bone and Joint Treatment

The Bone and Joint Center at Magee aims to make the joint replacement process as easy as possible for patients and families.

The center includes doctors’ offices and a preoperative outpatient center on the hospital’s first floor. This makes access to treatment easier for people with joint pain or orthotics.
