Local Clinic Gets Award

MEDFORD, Ore. — Southern Oregon-based La Clinica is being recognized by a national healthcare quality organization for its patient-centered approach to care. The recognition is the first for an Oregon community health center.

La Clinica found out this week that the private non-profit National Committee for Quality Assurance awarded all three primary-care La Clinica centers level 3 patient-centered medical home recognition.

The designation is similar to but more widely recognized than the patient-centered primary care home designation in Oregon.
