Centennial Medical Center, located in Frisco, Texas recently received three Cigna Center of Excellence (COE) designations.
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.

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.
