St. Mary's Designated a Blue Distinction Center for Cardiac Care

St. Mary’s of Michigan has successfully met the strict criteria to be named a Blue Distinction® Center for Cardiac Care by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network. Blue Distinction is a designation awarded by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies to medical facilities that have demonstrated expertise in delivering quality healthcare.
 
The designation is based on rigorous, evidence-based, objective selection criteria established in collaboration with expert physicians’ and medical organizations’ recommendations. Its goal is to help consumers find quality specialty care on a consistent basis, while enabling and encouraging healthcare professionals to improve the overall quality and delivery of care nationwide.
 
Blue Distinction Centers for Cardiac Care provide a full range of cardiac care services, including inpatient cardiac care, cardiac rehabilitation, cardiac catheterization and percutaneous coronary interventions, cardiac surgery, and, most importantly, must meet stringent quality criteria, as established by expert physician panels and national organizations.
 
This distinction reinforces the long-standing tradition of cardiac care at St. Mary’s of Michigan. Twenty-five years ago, St. Mary’s of Michigan performed the region’s first open heart surgery. Since then, nearly 20,000 open heart surgeries and over 86,000 cardiac catheterizations have been performed.
