Sawtooth Mountain Clinic Wins 3 HRSA Awards
Recently, the National Association of Community Health Centers held its annual meeting. At that meeting, the Health Resources and Services Administration announced the Quality Recognition Awards. We are happy to announce that Sawtooth Mountain Clinic won 3 awards: Covid-19 Public Health Champion, Health Center Quality Leader – Bronze, and Patient-Centered Medical Home.
The Patient-centered Medical Home is a designation based on the quality of care coordination. The Bronze Quality Leader award recognizes that SMC is in the top 30% of clinics nationally for clinical quality metrics. We are particularly proud of the COVID-19 award, which was only granted to the top 10% of the 1,370 clinics in the nation.
Thanks to Cook County Public Health & Human Services, North Shore Health, and Grand Portage Health Services for being part of our local healthcare collaboration!
