Kirby Medical Center Awarded PCMH Exemplary Provider® Status

SPRING HOUSE, PA (April 2017) – Kirby Medical Center of Monticello, Illinois, was recently awarded Exemplary Provider® accreditation status for Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by The Compliance Team, Inc.

PCMH Exemplary Provider accreditation is only granted to providers that demonstrate 100% compliance with Improving care delivery practices while responding to each patient’s unique needs and preferences. The PCMH program includes comprehensive, patient-centered, coordinated care which includes enhanced accessibility, quality and safety. 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. This PCMH accreditation model is built around enhanced communication with their patients and focuses on what matters most to patients and their families.

Sara Wells, Kirby Medical Group Clinic Director, was the accreditation coordinator during the accreditation process: “The Patient Centered Medical Home model of care delivery is doing what makes sense, putting the patient at the center of his or her healthcare team. This accreditation proves that we have systems and processes in place to do just that. Kirby Medical Group is dedicated to our patients and their families, being healthcare stewards, and providing coordinated care.”
