St. Joseph Heritage Medical Group (SJHMG) was named a Value Based P4P Excellence in Healthcare award winner for 2014 by the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA). The "Excellence in Healthcare" award is the highest level of achievement from IHA — a nonprofit, statewide leadership group that promotes quality improvement, accountability and affordability of health care in California.
The elite honor recognizes physician organizations that have been successful in achieving strong quality results while effectively managing costs. To earn this recognition, physician organizations must have performance that ranks in the top 50 percent for each: clinical quality, patient experience and cost performance.
"This award is a direct reflection of our continued commitment to provide exceptional care, and the many outstanding programs we've implemented over the past few years to improve the health care experience," said C.R. Burke, CEO, St. Joseph Heritage Healthcare. "The hard work of our physicians, providers, staff and leadership make these types of recognitions possible."
