Lake­side Med­i­cal Cen­ter has been rec­og­nized by Flor­ida Blue with a Blue Distinc­tion Cen­ter for Ma­ter­nity Care des­ig­na­tion as part of the Blue Cross Blue Shield As­so­ci­a­tion’s Blue Distinc­tion Spe­cialty Care pro­gram.

Blue Distinc­tion Cen­ters are na­tion­ally des­ig­nated 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.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield has rec­og­nized more than 1,000 hos­pi­tals as Blue Distinc­tion Cen­ters for Ma­ter­nity Care. Hos­pi­tals rec­og­nized with this des­ig­na­tion are as­sessed us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of qual­ity in­for­ma­tion sup­plied by hos­pi­tals and cost mea­sures de­rived from BCBS com­pa­nies’ med­i­cal claims.
