Memorial Hospital's Heart Center Is Recognized for Delivering Quality Care

Last updated 3 years ago

Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in Jacksonville, and one of fewer than 200 hospitals nationwide, to be named a Blue Distinction Center+ for Cardiac Care.

The Blue Distinction Center recognition program was established by The Blue Cross and Blue Shield System (BCBS) to identify hospitals with proven expertise in delivering specialty care.

According to BCBS, Blue Distinction Centers+ demonstrate better quality and improved outcomes for patients, with lower rates of complications following certain cardiac procedures and lower rates of healthcare associated infections.

BCBS says Blue Distinction Centers+ are also 20 percent more cost-efficient than non-designated hospitals.
