LAFAYETTE - Exempla said today that its Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center in Lafayette is now in Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield's network of hospitals.
This means Anthem members can access medical services at Good Samaritan Medical Center effective July 1.
David Hamm, president and chief executive of Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center, said, "The arrangement offers consumers in the northwest metro area greater access to quality, affordable health care at a facility that offers the latest medical technology and has an excellent patient safety record."
Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center was awarded a three-year accreditation from the Joint Commission, which measures hospitals on more than 40 key indicators of patient safety and quality on a continual basis. In addition, the hospital performed better than state and national averages on two key indicators of patient satisfaction under the new Hospital Consumer Assessment of Health Care Providers and Systems national patient survey.
