Med Center Health in Bowling Green recognized for cardiac care

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield is recognizing The Medical Center in Bowling Green for their cardiac care.

Med Center Health has received a Blue Distinction Centers for Cardiac Care designation.

Blue distinction centers are selected across the country for improved patient safety and better health outcomes.

Only hospitals that meet nationally established quality measures are considered for the designation.

“For our cardiac surgery for our patients who have had open heart surgery it looks at their length of stay. It looks at their complications. It looks at their mortality, and those are all things that we’re rated on and part of the reason that we received the Blue Distinction Plus,” said Melinda Joyce, vice president of corporate support services at Med Center Health.

The Blue Distinction Care program has been around since 2006, and helps patients find quality care in their area.
