Hospitals receive grants

Last year, 47 upstate New York hospitals and health centers earned $24.5 million in quality improvement incentive payments from Excellus BlueCross BlueShield as part of the health insurer’s Hospital Performance Incentive Program.

In the past 10 years, quality performance incentives from Excellus BCBS have exceeded $169 million.

Eight hospitals in the Finger Lakes Region participated in the program in 2013, including Clifton Springs Hospital, UR Medicine’s F.F. Thompson Hospital, UR Medicine’s Highland Hospital, Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, Nicholas H. Noyes Memorial Hospital, Rochester General Hospital, UR Medicine’s Strong Memorial Hospital and Unity Hospital.

Launched in 2004, the HPIP program evaluates participating hospitals on more than 250 performance measures.
