National Recognition

The American Orthopaedic Association regularly recognizes Own the Bone sites for their commitment to improving patient bone health after a fracture.

Star Performer Recognition

Own the Bone enrolled hospitals and practices that achieve a 75% compliance rate with at least 5 of the 10 Own the Bone prevention measures, based on patients screened and entered into the registry during the preceding 12 month period, receive a special recognition as “Own the Bone Star Performers” in the annual recognition ad in U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” Guide. Through their participation in Own the Bone and recognition as an Own the Bone Star Performer, institutions demonstrate a commitment to helping patients understand their risk for future fractures and the steps they can take to prevent them.

In an effort to help designated institutions publicize their achievement, Own the Bone is excited to introduce a media toolkit for sites that have achieved the Star Performer recognition. The toolkit includes a Star Performer certificate and logo that recognized institutions can include in newsletters, brochures, newspaper advertisements, or wherever they would like to advertise their efforts.
