Two New Children’s International Medical Group Locations Awarded Rural Health Exemplary Provider® Accreditation

January 2017 – Rural health clinics (RHC) in Amite, Louisiana and Morton, Mississippi, operated by the Children’s International Medical Group (CIMG) of Slidell, Louisiana, have been awarded Exemplary Provider® accreditation status by The Compliance Team, Inc., the only Medicare approved healthcare accreditation organization that offers the Exemplary Provider award.

Exemplary Provider rural health accreditation is only conferred on providers that demonstrate 100% compliance to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) rigorous Conditions for Certification. The Compliance Team’s proprietary operations-driven, nationally recognized accreditation is a comprehensive, continuous quality improvement program that standardizes the provider’s policies and procedures, streamlines its operation and validates its quality. The rural health clinic accreditation is valid for a 3-year period.

Zachariah H. Allen, CIMG’s Divisional Senior Vice-President of the Rural Health Division, understands the value the Exemplary Provider status will have on his company’s patients. “Being awarded Exemplary Provider status by The Compliance Team is a recognition that our clinic is very proud to have achieved. Working with the Compliance Team has allowed our already successful company to deliver even better patient care by following the protocols we learned via our accreditation process.”

Children’s International Medical Group®, headquartered at 59101 Amber Street, Slidell, Louisiana, is a comprehensive group of general pediatricians, pediatric subspecialists and certified nurse practitioners located throughout Louisiana and in central and southern Mississippi. Children’s International Medical Group promotes physical and emotional well-being via comprehensive and personalized medical care. It has maintained an active role within the communities it serves for over 20 years. CIMG’s rural health clinic location in Franklinton, Louisiana received Exemplary Provider accreditation status from The Compliance Team in September 2016.

It is the only nationally recognized woman-owned healthcare accreditation organization to receive Medicare “deeming authority” to accredit healthcare providers.
