Cigna 3 Star Quality Bariatric

The Well Beginnings surgical weight loss program at Houston Northwest Medical Center is proud to be recognized as a Cigna 3 Star Quality Bariatric Center. This designation means that the hospital has met Cigna’s rigorous quality standards as well as nationally recognized medical standards.

“We are pleased that our hospital and our surgeons have been recognized by Cigna for the high quality care that we provide,” said Terry Kirk, RN, chief nursing officer at Houston Northwest Medical Center. “Our physicians and staff work very hard to provide quality patient care and this recognition is evidence of the high standard of care we deliver every day.”

The Cigna designation is based on multiple criteria including, but not limited to, full approval by the Surgical Review Corporation and/or American College of Surgeons, meeting Cigna clinical outcomes thresholds for complications, mortality, re-admissions within 30 days of discharge and re-operation within 30 days after initial operation, range of obesity services, and number of bariatric surgery procedures performed.
