News: Centegra Health & Wellness Network achieves blue ribbon results

In its first full year of existence, the Centegra Health & Wellness Network (CHWN) has achieved blue ribbon results and been named by Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Illinois as one of the top three providers in growth from December 2013 to January 2014.

CHWN received a blue ribbon for member satisfaction in 2013. The recognition is based on results of a survey conducted by Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Illinois that contains questions regarding customer satisfaction. Groups that received a 75 percent or higher satisfactory rating received the blue ribbon.

Survey questions focused on primary care physician office visits, including the explanation of medical tests and treatments, information about ways to avoid illness and stay healthy, length of wait time and the quality of care received.

“CHWN is dedicated to providing the best medical care available for today’s health care consumer,” said Jeff Schmidt, senior vice president of clinical integration and payer strategies for Centegra Health System. “In this era of health care reform, Centegra provides an integrated health care delivery model and a complete health care continuum so patients receive the highest level of care. Patients benefit from consistent quality and safety practices and from close relationships with their physicians. We are proud our members recognize the efforts we’ve made to provide access to high-quality care.”

CHWN is an association of hundreds of the best primary care physicians and top specialists in the McHenry County area. CHWN formed as a partnership between local community independent physicians and Centegra Health System employed physicians to help people receive safe, timely, patient-focused care.

Centegra Health System is committed to meeting the health care needs of the residents of greater McHenry County and to making services available in multiple and convenient locations, including hospitals in McHenry and Woodstock, Immediate and Physician Care Centers, Centegra Sage Cancer Center, Health Bridge Fitness Centers and the widely anticipated Centegra Hospital–Huntley slated for opening in 2016.
