Tuesday, June 2, 2015

SouthCoast Health recently received national recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The practice successfully met the program’s highest standards of patient-centered processes focusing on highly coordinated care and long‐term patient-clinician relationships to earn the distinction, which is valid for three years.

The organization attained Level 3 recognition the highest possible PCMH distinction at its primary care offices throughout Savannah, Richmond Hill, and Pooler; and its pediatric offices in Savannah, Richmond Hill, and Rincon.

The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that emphasizes coordinated care and communication across the healthcare system to improve patient experience and reduce costs. Recognized Medical Homes foster ongoing, participative partnerships between patients and their personal clinicians to transform primary care into “what patients want it to be.”

“We’re honored to receive this important recognition,” said SouthCoast Health Administrator, John Marrero. “The recognition reflects our commitment to partnering with our patients to achieve their complete health and wellness.”
