5 CFH Sites Receive PCMH Designation
We are excited to announce that the NCQA has designated five additional CFH health centers as Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH).
We are excited to announce that the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA) has designated five additional CFH health centers as Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH).
The five centers are 30th Street (Manhattan), 52nd Street (Manhattan), Laurel Hall (Queens), and Junius Street (Brooklyn), and the Living Room (the Bronx). This brings CFH to a total of 18 health centers with PCMH designation. This is in addition to 13 of our health centers receiving the PCHM designation for behavioral health.
What is a PCMH Designation?
The PCMH designation indicates that these health centers make patients their top priority and promote healthy relationships between patients and providers. In addition, research has shown PCMHs improve health care outcomes, increase staff satisfaction, and keep health care costs low.
We believe that people experiencing homelessness deserve the same quality health care as everyone else, or better. And, if you’re familiar with us, you know we always say we provide “high quality health care to New York’s neediest residents.” Of course, we stand by that statement. What is particularly notable about this news? The PCMH designation is an objective, third-party assessment of the quality of care provided by our health services teams.
This designation shows that we “walk the talk”.
Please join us in congratulating the entirety of our health care staff. You can do this by sharing this post on your social media accounts or going to one of ours and leaving a comment. Just be sure to tag @cfhnyc!
This is their achievement, and we could not be prouder.
