2011 Recognition

  • In 2011, HealthGrades named Covenant Medical Center among the top hospitals in the nation for bariatric surgery with a 5-star rating. HealthGrades found that bariatric surgery patients have a nearly 70 percent lower risk of experiencing an in-hospital complication at top-rated hospitals such as Covenant Medical Center compared to a poorly rated hospital.
  • Covenant Health’s Arrington Comprehensive Breast Center (ACBC) has been designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR). By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast-imaging centers that have earned accreditation in all of the College’s voluntary, breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.
  • Covenant received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines® - Stroke Silver Plus Quality Achievement Award. The award recognizes Covenant’s commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of stroke care by ensuring that stroke patients receive treatment according to nationally accepted standards and recommendations.
  • Covenant Arrington Comprehensive Breast Center (ACBC) was designated as the region’s first breast center to be accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance.
  • For the third year in a row, Covenant Health was named Best of the West – Hospital by KCBD NewsChannel 11 viewers.
