Spine Center Award for WJMC

Culicchia Spine TeamSpine Neurosurgeons John Steck and Erich Richter participated in the May 24 announcement that West Jefferson Medical Center has been named a Blue Distinction Center in Spine Surgery by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana. The program is a national designation awarded by Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies to medical facilities that have demonstrated expertise in delivering quality specialty care—which expanded recently to include more robust quality measures focused on improved patient health and safety. Research confirms that the newly designated Blue Distinction Centers demonstrate better quality and improved outcomes for patients, with lower rates of complications and readmissions than their peers. The program provides consumers with tools to help them make better informed healthcare decisions.

There are only four centers in Louisiana.
