Franciscan St. Francis Health has been designated an Aetna Institute of Quality® Cardiac Care Facility for comprehensive heart and vascular treatment. At present, Franciscan St. Francis is the only hospital in Indiana to have this Aetna Institute of Quality designation.
Aetna makes information about the quality and cost of health care services available to its members to help them make informed decisions about their medical needs. In line with this goal, Aetna recognizes hospitals and facilities in its network that offer specialized clinical services for certain health conditions. Facilities are selected for consistently delivering evidence-based, safe care.
“We are dedicated to making our care for cardiovascular patients among the best in the country,” said Terri Ruff, executive director of Franciscan St. Francis Heart Center. “In achieving this goal, we are proud to have been designated an Aetna Institute of Quality.”
