CCH Designated as Blue Distinction® Center+ for Maternity Care
Columbus Community Hospital (CCH) has been designated as a Blue Distinction® Center+ for Maternity Care. This honor is based on a thorough, objective evaluation of a hospital’s performance in the areas that matter most—quality care, treatment expertise and overall patient outcomes.
The designation is part of Blue Cross Blue Shield’s Blue Distinction® Specialty Care Program. The program recognizes hospitals that show expertise in delivering improved patient safety and better health outcomes, based on objective measures that were developed with input from the medical community. To receive a Blue Distinction Centers+ for Maternity Care designation, a hospital must also meet requirements for cost efficiency.
The Blue Distinction® for Maternity Care also evaluates hospitals on the percentage of newborns that fall into the category of early elective delivery, which is an ongoing concern in the medical community.
Since 2006, the Blue Distinction® Specialty Care program has helped patients find quality specialty care in the areas of bariatric surgery, cancer care, cardiac care, maternity care, knee and hip replacements, spine surgery and transplants, while encouraging health care professionals to improve the care they deliver.
Nearly four million babies are born in the U.S. annually, making childbirth the most common cause of hospitalization. Columbus Community Hospital is proud to deliver high quality care to new moms and dads every day.
