NCQA Awarded BMS with 2023-2024 NYS Patient-Centered Medical Home
BMS received our 2023-2024 NYS Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition from National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for our 3 Primary Care sites: Main, Ashford, and Bristol.
PCMH is a national recognition for Healthcare Facilities (hospitals, outpatient facilities, etc.) to provide high-quality, cost-effective healthcare in a manner that is comprehensive, coordinated, and patient-centered. This process requires an annual renewal of standards which are updated by NCQA and NYS every year starting January 1st of each year, and BMS is among the first group of healthcare facilities in New York State to receive our annual recognition.
We thank our amazing BMS staff for their ongoing effort and work ethic to deliver services that empower our community to take charge of their own health.
