Feb. 27, 2013 - PRLog -- Centennial Medical Center (http://www.centennialmedcenter.com/en-US/Pages/default.aspx), located in Frisco, Texas recently received three Cigna Center of Excellence (COE) designations. Cigna’s program evaluates and recognizes hospitals with positive patient outcomes and high cost-efficiency measures. Participating hospitals meeting specific quality and cost-efficiency criteria are designated as a COE by procedure and condition.

Centennial received COE designations in the following areas: General cardiac medical (heart attack, heart failure, irregular heartbeat); elective cardiac medical (cardiac catheterization, angioplasty with and without stent); and stroke.

"We stand by our mission at Centennial. We ‘care completely,’ where your family’s total well being is our reason for being,” said Joe Thomason, Centennial’s Chief Executive Officer. “Quality is the cornerstone of everything we do. It is our passion to provide exceptional care to every patient we serve, and I am extremely proud of our staff for making quality a top priority."

The COE program is designed to meet the ever-growing consumer demand for tools and information on patient outcomes and cost efficiency. This year, Cigna updated and expanded its designation methodology. In addition, Cigna has enhanced quality designations to indicate superior patient outcomes based on treatment effectiveness for 31 different surgical procedures and medical conditions. The patient outcomes data use hospitals’ Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare measures, Leapfrog Patient Safety Measures, mortality and complication rates in addition to other evidence-based protocol metrics.

Centennial delivers safe, cost-effective care to its patients and the community through several quality initiatives (http://www.centennialmedcenter.com/en-us/ourquality/pages...). The hospital created a Commitment to Quality initiative designed to enhance the overall quality, control and productivity of its care delivery process, and is also involved in the American Heart Association Get with the GuidelinesSM Program. Furthermore, Centennial received several designations and accreditations throughout 2012 that contributed to the recent recognition of these Cigna designations including being named a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and receiving an A rating from The Leapfrog Group. Centennial also received the Texas Health Care Quality Improvement Silver Award from the TMF Health Quality Institute (http://www.tmf.org/).
