Hospital Receives Blue Distinction from Blue Cross Blue Shield

Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) has designated Medical City Dallas as a Blue Distinction Specialty Care Center for expertise in obstetrics.  

“Our providers and staff are always committed to providing the highest level of quality patient care to mothers and their newborns, and we are extremely pleased to receive this recognition from Blue Cross Blue Shield,” said Troy Villarreal, CEO of Medical City Dallas Hospital. “Our outstanding women’s services team provides a personalized experience to each mom, making sure they receive the best care possible. That extra special attention makes a difference in our families’ birthing experience.” Villarreal adds, “This designation is public affirmation that we are the market leader in women’s services, and we are consistently exceeding our patients’ and provider partners’ expectations.”

Blue Distinction Specialty Care is a national designation program that recognizes healthcare facilities that demonstrate expertise in delivering quality specialty care — safely, effectively, and cost efficiently. The designation allows consumers to identify hospitals for quality and value for their specialty medical care needs.   It also encourages healthcare professionals to improve the overall quality and delivery of their services.

Medical City Dallas Hospital’s Bariatric, Transplant and Knee/Hip Programs are also recognized by BCBS as Blue Distinction Centers, and its Cardiac Program is a designated Blue Distinction Center+.
