Providence Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital recently received the Blue Distinction Centers for Cardiac Care designation, as part of the Blue Distinction Specialty Care program.
This distinction is awarded by The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association to providers that show expertise in delivering improved patient safety and better health outcomes.
To receive a Blue Distinction Centers designation, hospitals must demonstrate expertise in delivering safe and effective cardiac care, focusing on cardiac valve surgery, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), and percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) episodes of care.
“We are honored to receive this designation,” said Chuck Kassis, Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital’s chief executive. “Our caregivers work hard to provide the most advanced level of care for our community. Their commitment to promoting the health of our community members is vital and saves lives every day.”
According to the American Heart Association (AHA), cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death globally and is expected to claim more than 23.6 million lives annually by 2030.
Thank you to our cardiac team for providing life-saving care to our community members.
