TMC Behavioral Health Center Awarded Cigna Center of Excellence Designation

With a wide range of behavioral health and substance use hospital and residential treatment locations across the country, the Cigna Centers of Excellence program helps customers identify the most appropriate care. Recognized for quality care and cost efficiency, TMC Behavioral Health Center has received the Cigna Center of Excellence designation for Adult Mental Health.

"One of the best ways we can help customers access simple, affordable, and predictable healthcare is by working with providers to ensure the care they are delivering is high quality, and the Cigna Center of Excellence designation is an honor that only those top providers can earn," said Dr. Doug Nemecek, Chief Medical Officer, Cigna Behavioral Health, Inc. "By interacting with behavioral health providers who have earned this distinction, customers can trust that they are in good hands."

Ron Seal, CEO of Texoma Medical Center, said, "We are proud that our TMC Behavioral Health Center has been named a Cigna Center of Excellence. This recognition acknowledges the hard work and dedication that our team puts forth every day to ensure our patients receive high-quality, cost-effective care. We want our community to know that should they need help, TMC Behavioral Health Center is prepared to deliver exceptional patient care for their mental health needs through each stage of recovery."

The Cigna Centers of Excellence program evaluates patient outcomes and cost data for network-participating providers. Facilities can receive a score of up to three stars for patient outcomes and three stars for cost efficiency. If a facility attains at least five stars, it is designated as a Cigna Center of Excellence.

The program is designed to meet the growing demand of customers for quality and cost information that can help them make informed choices about where to seek care. Patient outcomes and cost-efficiency metrics are based on Cigna methodology, which uses nationally recognized standards that include:

  • National accreditation
  • Total number of annual admissions
  • Readmission rates
  • Total cost per episode
  • Seven-day ambulatory follow-up
  • Discharge to a network-participating provider

TMC Behavioral Health Center has provided comprehensive adult psychiatric and chemical dependency services to adults 18 years and older for more than 40 years. We also offer an Adolescent Recovery Program for youth ages 13-17. Our programs are backed by the comprehensive healthcare services of Texoma Medical Center.
