Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale has received the UnitedHealth Premium® specialty center designation in recognition of quality care.

UnitedHealthcare® developed the UnitedHealth Premium specialty center program to give its members information and access to hospitals meeting rigorous quality criteria. Designed to help members make informed decisions should they need cardiac services care, the designation is based on detailed information about specialized training, practice capabilities, outcomes and cost efficiency of care.

To receive this designation, the non-profit hospital met extensive quality and outcomes 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.

“We are proud to be one of the leaders in cardiac care,” said Patrick A. Taylor, M.D., President and CEO of Holy Cross Hospital. “Our focus on clinical excellence, leading edge technology and state-of-the-art procedures continues to be recognized nationally.”

Holy Cross Hospital offers comprehensive cardiac services through the Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Center and progressive research at the Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Research Institute.
