BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina has recognized several Lowcountry health care facilities with a Blue Distinction Centers (BDC) or Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) for Maternity Care designation, as part of the Blue Distinction Specialty Care Program.
Beaufort Memorial Hospital is a Blue Distinction Center+, while Hilton Head Hospital and Coastal Carolina Medical Center are Blue Distinction Centers.
Blue Distinction Centers are nationally designated health care facilities that show expertise in delivering safer, more efficient and improved health outcomes compared with their peers. The Blue Distinction Centers+ for Maternity Care designation recognizes those facilities that demonstrate higher quality and value.
Quality is key: Only those health care facilities that first meet Blue Distinction’s nationally established objective quality measures will be considered for designation as a Blue Distinction Center+.
