LIBERTY Dental Plan recognized Crusader Community Health as a 2016 Center of Excellence Award winner.
On February 10, 2017 Illinois Senator Dave Syverson, Dr. Jason Grinter (Illinois LIBERTY Dental Director) and Judy Bowlby (LIBERTY Senior Manager Government Programs) will present the 2016 Center of Excellence Award to Gordon Eggers Jr. (President and CEO), Dr. Dina Girgis (Dental Department Chair) and Kathy Olson (Dental Director).
While working closely with Crusader’s local dentists over the past two years, LIBERTY noticed that Crusader dentists consistently demonstrated above and beyond their commitment and dedication to quality care for those they serve.
“Crusaders high patient satisfaction tells us a great deal about the compassionate and quality care Crusader patients receive.” said Dr. Jason Grinter, Illinois LIBERTY Dental Director. Senator Dave Syverson, the senior member of the Senate Human Services Committee stated, “I am grateful to LIBERTY Dental for the outstanding job they are doing in delivering quality compassionate dental care for our residents in Illinois. The fact that the Crusader dental program would be given this award doesn’t surprise those of us who are familiar with the excellent nationally recognized work that is done at Crusader.”
LIBERTY Dental Plan selects Center of Excellence Award winners through a rigorous evaluation process including, but not limited to, reviews of office safety and compliance, appropriate and timely delivery of dental services, and high member satisfaction with care received.
LIBERTY Dental Plan is a full-service dental benefits company that has been providing dental services to Medicaid beneficiaries across the U.S. since 2005 and in Illinois since 2014, when the State authorized the Medicaid dental managed care program. LIBERTY is a patient-focused dental program that recognizes that the best care comes from partnering with local dentists who believe in the same high standards of delivering quality and compassionate care for their patients.
