Jan. 3, 2013 - PRLog -- Centennial Medical Center (http://www.centennialmedcenter.com/) in Frisco, Texas, recently received The UnitedHealth Premium specialty center designation in recognition of quality care.

UnitedHealthcare® developed The UnitedHealth Premium specialty center program (https://www.unitedhealthcareonline.com/b2c/CmaAction.do?channelId=545ecd622bfb4210VgnVCM10000031d07b0a____) to give its members information and access to hospitals meeting rigorous quality criteria. The designation is based on detailed information about specialized training, practice capabilities and outcomes and is designed to help members make informed decisions should they need cardiac services care.

“In a cardiac emergency, time is of the essence and at Centennial we put in the extra time to make sure our staff is prepared and our equipment is ready for whatever crisis comes our way,” said Joe Thomason, Centennial’s chief executive officer. “The UnitedHealth Premium designation means that our patients can depend on Centennial for conscientious, reliable cardiac care.”

To receive this designation, Centennial met extensive quality and outcomes criteria based on nationally recognized medical standards and expert advice. The criteria incorporate measurements of breadth and depth of care, staff experience, emergency care, quality and outcomes reporting.

In addition, The Joint Commission (http://www.jointcommission.org/) recently named Centennial one of the nation’s Top Performers on Key Quality Measures™ (http://www.centennialmedcenter.com/en-us/aboutus/hospital...). Hospitals recognized as Top Performers demonstrate exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions.
