Wilmington Health Primary Care Departments Receive Recognition

Wilmington Health Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics locations in Wilmington, Carolina Beach, Hampstead, Leland, and Oak Island have received recognition as Patient-Centered Medical Homes by the National Committee of Quality Assurance (NCQA). Each location will be certified from 2014-2017.

“Having so many departments at Wilmington Health recognized as Patient-Centered Medical Homes is an honor and something we’ve worked hard to achieve,” Jeff James, Wilmington Health Chief Executive Officer, said. “We strongly believe in the idea of having a medical home, because it improves both the quality and continuity of care we provide our patients.”

“The patient-centered medical home promises to improve health and healthcare,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “The active, ongoing relationship between a patient and a physician in medical homes fosters an all-too-rare goal in care: staying healthy and preventing illness in the first place. PPC®-PCMH™ Recognition shows that Wilmington Health has tools, systems, and resources to provide their patients with the right care at the right time.”

The Patient-Centered Medical Home program was developed to assess whether physician practices are functioning as medical homes and recognize them for these efforts. The Patient-Centered Medical Home standards emphasize the use of systematic, patient-centered, coordinated care that supports access, communication and patient involvement.
