Evans, CO, Dec. 16, 2020 – On December 10, 2020, Sunrise Community Health received Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition for all six eligible clinic sites from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), including Monfort Family Clinic, Loveland Community Health Center, Sunrise SummitStone Clinic, Sunrise Adelante Clinic, Sunrise North Range Clinic, and Monfort Children’s Clinic. This recognition identifies clinicians and practices that utilize teamwork and technology to deliver coordinated and patient-centered primary care.
Sunrise is pleased to be recognized for our ongoing commitment to the PCMH standards and has sustained PCMH recognition for all its eligible clinic sites since 2012. The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home standards emphasize the use of systematic, patient-centered, coordinated care that supports access, communication, and patient involvement. “NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition raises the bar in defining high-quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology, and coordinated care focused on patients,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Recognition shows that Sunrise Community Health has the tools, systems, and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time.”
Sunrise practices this model of care daily, where we build relationships between patients and our clinical care teams. More importantly, the PCMH model really works for the nearly 42,000 patients that choose Sunrise as their health care home. It leads to better health, lower costs, and greater patient satisfaction, and it is at the heart of our mission to provide affordable access to quality health care in northeastern Colorado.
