  • Latino Community Honors Capital BlueCross for Excellence in Customer Service
    Lo Mejor de Lo Mejor award given for second consecutive year

    Harrisburg, Pa. – Capital BlueCross, a leader in its service to the Latino community, has been recognized by The Latino Connection magazine with the Lo Mejor de lo Mejor (“The Best of the Best”) award for the second consecutive year. The award is presented to companies and organizations in central Pennsylvania that go above and beyond in serving the Latino community.

    Capital BlueCross supports Spanish-speaking customers with bilingual sales representatives, Spanish-translated websites and product literature, and support for community organizations that serve Latino families and individuals.

    “Capital BlueCross' commitment to the Latino community is truly admirable. Spanish-speaking customers have access to many great tools and resources in their native tongue that aren’t offered by other health insurance providers,” said George Fernandez, CEO of The Latino Connection. “And through partnerships with organizations such as PinnacleHealth and Hispanic Centers, Capital BlueCross is empowering Latino community members to access care and live healthier with confidence.” 

    David Skerpon, Capital BlueCross vice president of consumer experience, said, “As a partner in the community’s health for nearly 80 years, we are proud to be recognized as a leader in service to the Latino community. Understanding health insurance and health care can be complicated, even more so when there is a language barrier. We make the experience for our Spanish-speaking customers as easy as possible. We are honored to receive the Lo Mejor de lo Mejor award and are committed to serving our Latino community with excellence.”  

    The Latino Connection magazine will present the Lo Mejor de lo Mejor award to Capital BlueCross on Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Latino BallExternal Site Disclaimer held at Harrisburg’s Midtown Arts Center.
