PeaceHealth Southwest Awarded BCBS Blue Center Distinction for Hip, Knee, and Spine Surgery

PeaceHealth Southwest was recently awarded the BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS) Blue Distinction Center recognition, noting PHSW as a hospital with expertise in delivering specialty care for Hip/Knee and Spine.

Blue Distinction Centers for Knee and Hip Replacement provide comprehensive inpatient knee and hip replacement services, including total knee replacement and total hip replacement surgeries. Blue Distinction Centers for Spine Surgery provide comprehensive inpatient spine surgery services, including discectomy, fusion and decompression procedures.

Blue Distinction Centers have a proven track-record for delivering better results – including fewer complications and readmissions – than hospitals without these recognitions. This is the second consecutive time that PHSW has received this 3 year recognition.
