FamilyCare Receives National Awards for Community Healthcare Services
FamilyCare Health Centers has received national recognition for its quality of services in five areas designed to measure the accomplishments of community health centers in the United States.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) recognized FamilyCare with Community Health Quality Recognition badges. The badges are awarded to health centers that have made notable quality improvement achievements in various areas of health care provided to the community.
The criteria for which FamilyCare was recognized were Health Center Quality Leader, Access Enhancer, Health Disaparities Reducer, Advancing Health Information Technology for Quality, and the Patient Centered Medical Home Recognition (PCMH). The recognitions were awarded for acheiving the best overall clinical quality measure performance among health centers, increasing the number of patients by 5% during consecutive reporting periods, meeting measures on low birth weight and hypertension control, have advanced technology through their services, and had PCMH recognition in one or more service delivery sites.
Last year, FamilyCare received three awards from the HRSA for their healthcare work in communities in West Virginina. Craig Glover, president and CEO of FamilyCare, says the additional recognitions this year are a testament to FamilyCare’s commitment to continue to provide care to improve the health of those in the area.
“We’re extremely proud of the work our associates at our centers have performed this past year,” said Glover. “As we progress, we continue to stay steadfast in our mission to build healthier communities. The more patients we can reach, the better we will all become. Again, I can’t say enough about our team and the work they’re putting into our communities.”
FamilyCare operates over 15 health centers and mobile units between Kanawha, Putna, Boone and Cabell counties. The agency offers an array of health services, including family practice, pediatrics, school-based health, dental services and behavioral health.
