Three Eastern Iowa Hospitals Designated Blue Distinction® Center+ for Maternity Care

null

Waterloo, IA – In an effort to help prospective parents find hospitals that deliver quality, affordable maternity care, Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield announced that UnityPoint Health® - Allen Hospital in Waterloo, UnityPoint Health® - Finley Hospital in Dubuque and UnityPoint Health® - St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids have received designation as a Blue Distinction® Center+ for Maternity Care.

Childbirth is the most common cause of hospitalization in the United States with nearly four million babies born annually. The new Blue Distinction Centers+ for Maternity Care program evaluates hospitals on several quality measures, including the percentage of newborns who fall into the category of early elective delivery, an ongoing concern in the medical community.

As a result, Allen, Finley and St. Luke’s Hospitals have agreed to meet requirements that align with principles that support evidence-based practices of care, as well as having initiated programs to promote successful breastfeeding. The program also evaluates hospitals on overall patient satisfaction, including a willingness to recommend services to others, and cost efficiency.

On average, specialty services recognized by the Blue Distinction Specialty Care program are 20 percent more cost efficient than non-Blue Distinction Center+ facilities. For more information and a complete listing of designated facilities, please visit www.bcbs.com/bluedistinction.
