Centers of Excellence


As one of the national leaders in the move to high quality, value-based care, HDP offers the ECEN™ Centers of Excellence program in partnership with Pacific Business Group on Health (PBGH.) HDP contracts with several of the country’s most highly rated medical centers, and we currently offer destination travel benefit solutions for cardiac, joint, spine, bariatric and oncology care. These unique programs provide employees access to some of the best medical centers and surgeons in the country for little to no out of pocket cost, all while providing a significant financial return to our clients via 3 primary categories:

  1. savings through fully “bundled” pricing with our medical center partners;
  2. the avoidance of unnecessary surgeries;
  3. significantly better clinical outcomes
