Health Center Quality Leader Award
For the sixth year in a row, Sunrise Community Health received multiple awards for the quality of its services. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) recognized Sunrise with the prestigious Gold Level Health Center Quality Leader award, placing Sunrise in the top 10% among all health centers in the nation for quality. Along with two additional quality awards for advancing health information technology and achieving Patient-Centered Medical Home status, these awards underscore Sunrise’s strong track record.
Colorado Public Health Association Lifetime Achievement Award
We are very proud of our Chief Clinical Officer, Dr. Mark Wallace, for this well-deserved award. Recently retired after 28 years as the Executive Director for the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment, he is now serving as Sunrise’s Chief Clinical Officer. From a long tenure as former Chair of the Sunrise Board of Directors to serving as the CEO/CMO of the North Colorado Health Alliance to sitting on the Governor’s Blue Ribbon Commission in 2006, his tireless work has made a lasting impact on public health in Colorado. For complete details, please see the award announcement.
NCQA Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Homes Award
All six of Sunrise’s eligible sites have been recognized as Level 3 Patient-Centered
Medical Homes — the highest level of recognition — by the National Committee for
Quality Assurance (NCQA). The Patient-Centered Medical Home model puts patients at the center of care, where patients and the clinical team build relationships that lead to
improved quality, a better patient experience, and reduced health care costs.
