Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital announced recently that it has received three CIGNA quality designations and two Centers of Excellence designations for 2009.
This recognition means that Cy-Fair Hospital has met rigorous quality criteria based on nationally recognized medical standards.
Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital received the following designations: CIGNA quality for Caesarean Section, Adult Pneumonia, and Vaginal Delivery and CIGNA Centers of Excellence for Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal and Gastric Bypass.
The designations are awarded based on the hospital’s effectiveness in treating the selected condition or performing the procedure. The designations are based in part of a hospital’s CMS Hospital Compare measures, Leapfrog Patient Safety Measures, mortality, and complication rates.
“Being recognized by CIGNA is a testament to the level of care our staff and physicians provide to patients everyday and is evidence of our hospital’s commitment to providing high quality care,” said Terry Wheeler, chief executive officer for Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital. “Such recognitions demonstrate that we deliver care that exceeds nationally recognized standards for these conditions, and we are proud to be the hospital of choice for the community.”
For more than twenty-six years, Cy-Fair Hospital has been providing rapid treatment and advanced care for a variety of medical situations. This has enabled the hospital to receive these and many other distinguished recognitions.
