Blue Distinction Centers
The Right Hospital to Meet Your Needs
The hospital you select can have a direct impact on the care you receive and your procedure results. But finding the right hospital can sometimes be a challenge. Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies understand that you deserve peace of mind when making these important healthcare decisions with your doctor. That’s why we developed the Blue Distinction Centers® recognition program to identify hospitals with proven expertise in delivering specialty care for Bariatric Surgery, Cardiac Care, Knee and Hip Replacement, Spine Surgery, and Complex and Rare Cancers.
These facilities meet objective quality criteria established with input from expert physician panels, surgeons and other medical professionals. Blue Distinction Centers offer comprehensive care delivered by multidisciplinary teams with subspecialty training and distinguished clinical expertise.
Blue Distinction Centers are available nationwide no matter where you work, live or travel – and finding one is easy. Use our National Doctor & Hospital Finder, or call us at the customer service number listed on the back of your ID card.
