As part of the expansion of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association Blue Distinction program, Mayo Clinic Hospital has been designated a Blue Distinction Center for Transplants, Complex and Rare Cancers, Spine Surgery and Knee and Hip Replacement by the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.

"Blue Distinction puts a high value on research and evidence-based health and medical information," said Allan Korn, M.D., Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association Chief Medical Officer. "Blue Distinction Centers show our commitment to working with doctors and hospitals in communities across the country to identify leading institutions that meet clinically validated quality standards and deliver better overall outcomes in patient care."

Blue Distinction Centers demonstrate their commitment to quality care, resulting in better overall outcomes for patients. Mayo Clinic Hospital was required to meet stringent clinical criteria, established in collaboration with expert physician and medical organization recommendations and is subject to periodic reevaluation as selection criteria continue to evolve.

For transplant, actively performing a required minimum volume of transplant procedures for the most recent 24-month period

The Blue Distinction designation is awarded by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies to medical facilities that have demonstrated expertise in delivering quality health care in the areas of bariatric surgery, cardiac care, complex and rare cancers, knee and hip replacement, spine surgery and transplants. The program is part of The Blues efforts to collaborate with physicians and medical facilities to improve the overall quality and safety of specialty care.
