Holston Valley earns prestigious designation for hip replacement, cardiac surgery

Holston Valley Medical Center, which has served Kingsport and its surrounding region for nearly 85 years, has been recognized as a Cigna Center of Excellence for elective cardiac medical procedures and hip replacement surgery.

The honor comes on the heels of several other high-level accolades for Holston Valley’s cardiac care, including its 2015 designation as one of the top 100 hospitals in the nation for medical excellence in cardiac care and heart attack treatment from CareChex®, a division of Comparion that evaluates hospitals on multiple components of quality. The hospital was also ranked in the top 10 percent of hospitals nationally for medical excellence in cancer care and women’s health, and it was No. 1 in the Tri-Cities for medical excellence in spinal fusion.

Holston Valley 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 www.cigna.com/CentersOfExcellence.
