LCH Health and Community Services earns prestigious recognition

LCH Health and Community Services announced that it has been recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Person-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) for 2024. This prestigious recognition is a testament to LCH's commitment to providing high-quality, patient-centered care to its community.

The NCQA's PCMH recognition program evaluates healthcare organizations based on their ability to provide comprehensive and coordinated care that meets the needs of their patients. PCMH-accredited organizations like LCH focus on building strong, ongoing relationships with patients, coordinating their care across different providers and settings, and engaging patients in their own healthcare decisions.  LCH has been recognized annually for more than 5 years by achieving PCMH recognition.

“We are thrilled to receive this recognition from the NCQA,” said Ronan W. Gannon, CEO at LCH Health and Community Services. “Being recognized as a Person-Centered Medical Home reaffirms our dedication to providing the highest level of care to our patients and working collaboratively with them to improve their health outcomes.”

The PCMH model has been shown to improve patient experience, enhance the quality of care, and reduce healthcare costs by promoting preventive care and reducing unnecessary hospitalizations and emergency department visits. By achieving PCMH accreditation, LCH Health and Community Services has demonstrated its commitment to delivering exceptional care to its patients and community.

Kyu Rhee, MD, MPP, President and CEO of the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC), applauded LCH Health and Community Services on its PCMH accreditation. "This achievement highlights the important role Community Health Centers like LCH play in delivering high-quality care to 31.5 million patients in over 1500 rural, urban and frontier communities across the United States. Community Health Centers are the best, most innovative, diverse, and resilient part of the U.S. health care system and serve as vital resources for their communities. LCH's commitment to excellence sets a commendable example for others to follow."
