Tuesday, January 15, 2008 - NBMC Awarded UnitedHealth Premium® Specialty Center Designation

UnitedHealthcare developed the UnitedHealth Premium Specialty Center designation program to give its members information about, and access to, surgical spine hospitals meeting rigorous quality criteria. This designation is based on detailed information about specialized training, practice capabilities and outcomes that we submit to UnitedHealthcare and is designed to help members make informed decisions should they need surgical spine care.

To receive this designation, North Broward Medical Center met extensive quality criteria based on nationally recognized medical standards and expert advice. The criteria incorporate measurements of breadth and depth of care, staff experience, emergency care, quality and outcomes reporting.

“This designation is a testament to the staff and physicians at North Broward Medical Center,” said Pauline Grant, CEO. “Their level of knowledge and expertise and the superior outcomes that our patients have are what made it possible for us to meet the rigorous criteria.”

Broward Health, providing service for more than 50 years, is a nationally recognized system offering world class health care services to our neighbors in South Florida. One of the five largest public health systems in the nation, Broward Health includes Broward General Medical Center, North Broward Medical Center, Imperial Point Medical Center, Coral Springs Medical Center, Chris Evert Children’s Hospital, Broward Health Weston and more than 30 facilities of the Community Health Services and Broward Health Physician Group.
