Nationally Recognized Quality
Genesis has received national recognition for providing high quality patient care and is the only provider in the region to earn the following acknowledgements.
- Thomson Reuters has named Genesis as one of the Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospitals in the country.
- Blue Cross and Blue Shield recognizes Genesis as a Blue Distinction Center for Cardiac Care.
- Genesis earned UnitedHealthcare's Center of Excellence for Cardiac Care.
Genesis Medical Center, Davenport, also measures quite favorably against nationally recognized benchmarks for cardiac care. Heart attack response times rank among the best in the nation, and heart bypass surgery outcomes exceed the national average.
Genesis Medical Center, Silvis, upgraded and renovated its $1.2 million Cardiac Catheterization lab and in 2002 became the first hospital in the area to perform emergency interventional catheterizations without an open-heart surgical program. It now offers elective angioplasty in cases of low-to-moderate risk.
At Genesis Medical Center, DeWitt, a partnership with physicians from Cardiovascular Medicine, P.C., allows patients to see their cardiologist much closer to home. The hospital also provides a wide variety of cardiac testing, including echocardiograms, stress testing and holter monitoring.
