Each year, the Missouri Primary Care Association acknowledges Community Health Centers who meet or exceed a set of clinical quality measures, set by the MPCA Medical Director Network on an annual basis. These quality measures focus on such areas as diabetes control, blood pressure control, cancer screenings, and weight management. This year, 17 awards were presented in total, with levels of Gold, Silver, or Bronze.
Fordland Clinic, Inc. received a Silver Award, for meeting or exceeding six of nine quality measures. The award was presented at the MPCA Clinical Quality Awards Luncheon during the MPCA Annual Conference in Branson MO on October 13, 2017. The award was accepted by Joan Twiton, CEO; Dr. Randal Hamric, CMO; and Sonya Steward-Cass, RN, Director of Nursing.
