Washington Hospital and Anthem Blue Cross today announced that they have reached an agreement which will continue the Hospital's delivery of quality care to Anthem members and the Tri-City community's access to its local hospital.
"We are very pleased that this community will have continued access to Washington Hospital, one of the region's best," said Nancy Farber, CEO. "Thanks to the commitment of both sides, patients will experience no interruption in service."
"Anthem Blue Cross has great respect for the fine work carried out each day by the medical staff, administrators and all of those who work at Washington Hospital and who help to care for the people of this community," said Aldo De La Torre, Vice President of contracting with Anthem Blue Cross. "We are delighted that Washington Hospital remains as one of the valued hospitals in the Anthem Blue Cross network."
"Since our founding more than fifty years ago, Washington Hospital has been a District hospital where community members come to receive local quality care, close to home," added Farber. "We will continue to provide a wide range of superior services to our patients, and are very pleased that a resolution to this matter has been reached."
