St. Joseph's Hospital designated a Blue Distinction Center+ for Cardiac Care
HealthEast St. Joseph's Hospital has been designated as a Blue Distinction Center+ for Cardiac Care. Research shows that Blue Distinction Centers+ demonstrate better quality and improved outcomes for patients, with lower rates of complications following certain cardiac procedures and lower rates of health care associated infections compared with their peers. Blue Distinction Centers+ are also 20 percent more cost-efficient than non-designated hospitals for those same cardiac procedures.
