St. Vincent Charity Medical Center earns Blue Distinction in spine surgery

St. Vincent Charity Medical Center is one of only two facilities in the Cleveland area to be designated a Blue Distinction Center in spine surgery by the BlueCross BlueShield Association.

Blue Distinction Centers are nationally recognized and trusted programs that provide excellent specialty care. It is a national designation program by the BlueCross BlueShield Association that identifies facilities that demonstrate expertise in delivering quality specialty care safely, efficient¬ly and cost effectively.

The objective of the program is to help consum¬ers find facilities that provide both quality and value for their specialty care needs, while encouraging health care professionals to strive for over¬all quality care.

To be named a Blue Distinction Center in spine surgery, St. Vincent Charity was reviewed based on patient re¬sults and outcomes, treatment expertise, procedure volume, structure and process. Currently, only 310 facili¬ties across the country have been designated as Blue Distinction Centers for Spine Surgery.

St. Vincent Charity is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System
