FHC Certification

Posted on 31st October 2014 at 09:04

The Family Health Center North Beach Clinic in Ocean Park is now being recognized as a “Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home,” ranked by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Dian Cooper with the Family Health Center says that a PCMH is a model of primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication that helps to ensure that patients receive the right care, at the right place, at the right time. “Level 3” is the highest level recognized by the NCQA. Using this “medical home model,” the FHC offers quality, effective and efficient care, while responding to the unique needs and preferences of each patient. It’s also noted that Medical Homes also lead to higher quality and lower overall costs. Cooper says that work is continuing to receive PCMH recognition for the other Family Health Center clinics in Cowlitz and Wahkiakum Counties.
