Patient Safety First
Crozer Health is committed to a continuous improvement approach to ensuring safe, effective and compassionate care for every patient. We focus on ensuring the best, most effective treatment, coupled with constant attention to identifying and preventing potential safety problems.
Patient-Centered Medical Homes
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) recognizes Crozer Health Medical Group’s primary care practices as Level III Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH). This is the NCQA’s highest designation for Medical Home Practices.
Comprehensive Primary Care Plus
Several Crozer Health primary care practices have been selected to participate in Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+); a five-year program sponsored by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). CPC+ will help us to further transform our practices to meet the changing needs of the patients we serve.
