Bristol Regional named Center of Excellence in three service lines

Bristol Regional Medical Center has been recognized as a Cigna Center of Excellence for elective cardiac medical procedures, general cardiac procedures and hip replacement surgery.

The honor comes on the heels of several other high-level accolades for the hospital’s cardiac care, including its 2015 ranking in the nation’s top 10 percent for medical excellence in cardiac care from CareChex®, a division of Comparion that evaluates hospitals on multiple components of quality.

Bristol Regional has also long been lauded for its Every Step Joint Replacement program, which offers a comprehensive program of education and peer support to help patients recover from hip and knee surgeries.

Through the Centers of Excellence program, Cigna annually evaluates hospital patient outcomes and cost-efficiency information. More information can be found online at
