SwedishAmerican Continues Long-Term Relationship with Blue Cross Blue Shield

For years, SwedishAmerican Hospital; SwedishAmerican Home Health Care; and SwedishAmerican Medical Group clinics have participated with Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) of Illinois. BCBS insurance holders not only have access to SwedishAmerican Hospital, providers and clinics throughout Winnebago, Boone and Ogle counties, but also have access to SwedishAmerican’s outpatient pharmacy.

“SwedishAmerican has been long term participants of Blue Cross Blue Shield,” says SwedishAmerican VP and Chief Clinical Integration Officer Dr. Thomas Schiller. “Swedes is in growth mode and with the addition of hiring several new providers, not only have we been long-term providers of care for Blue Cross Blue Shield patients, but we anticipate strengthening that relationship moving into the future.”

Just in the last year, SwedishAmerican has hired more than 40 providers to its medical group, particularly hiring six new cardiology providers to the SwedishAmerican Heart Institute with additional physicians being recruited.
