Surgery Center Earns Blue Distinction+

Surgery Center earns prestigious accreditation

Our Surgery Center is celebrating its 20 years of proven excellence. Blue Cross Blue Shield has recently accredited us as a Blue Distinction+ facility.

What is Blue Distinction+? To be awarded Blue Distinction+ a facility must prove excellence in three areas: value, expertise, and outcomes.

To prove that our facility offers exceptional value, Blue Cross evaluated several factors, including handling of financial matters with patients and the rate at which additional procedures are needed after the initial surgery. Proof that we honor our patients' time and financial commitment must be evident.

Expertise is proven by the skill level and experience of the surgeons in the operating room. Our surgeons are required to be board certified and with their wealth of experience have proven an exceptional level of excellence.

Outcomes refer to a patient's quality of life after surgery. It is something that everyone at Semmes Murphey is passionate about. We are dedicated to improving techniques and practices that ensure the long-term success of our surgical procedures.

We would like to congratulate everyone in the Semmes Murphey Surgery Center for their hard work and dedication that made this possible. We are committed to making our surgery center the best possible facility for our patients.
