CRMC Designated An Aetna Institute Of Quality

Cookeville, Tenn. – Cookeville Regional Medical Center has received three designations from Aetna:

  • Aetna Institute of Quality® Bariatric Surgery Facility for treating individuals living with morbid, or extreme, obesity.
  • Aetna Institute of Quality® Total Joint Replacement Surgery Program
  • Aetna Institute of Quality® Spine Program

Aetna makes information about the quality and cost of health care services available to its members to help them make informed decisions about their health care 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.

“One of our key strategies is to continually improve our services and the way that we deliver care to our patients,” said Paul Korth, CRMC CEO. “Receiving recognition from a third party such as Aetna shows that we are moving in the right direction and doing the right things. We work diligently every day to ensure the highest standards in caring for our patients.”

In addition to the designations from Aetna, Cookeville Regional has been named one of the 100 Great Community Hospitals by Becker’s Hospital Review two years in a row. Most recently the medical center has been named one of the 2017 50 top Cardiovascular Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics™.
