We are pleased to announce that Fenway Health is among only four health centers in Massachusetts to receive a National Quality Leaders award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The National Quality Leaders award is given to community health centers that exceed national benchmarks of care, such as Healthy People 2020 goals. The award is part of the $125 million in Quality Improvement grant awards that HHS is distributing to 1,352 community health centers across all U.S. states, territories and the District of Columbia.
Recipient health centers will use these funds to continue to improve quality, efficiency, and the effectiveness of healthcare delivery in the communities they serve. In addition to the National Quality Leader award, Fenway Health was recognized by HHS for excellence in categories such as Addressing Health Disparities, Achieving PCMH Recognition, and being a Health Center Quality leader. In total, Fenway Health will receive nearly $200,000.
The three other Massachusetts community health centers to receive the National Quality Leaders award are Family Health Center of Worcester, South Cove Community Health Center, and Upham’s Corner Health Center. Additionally, Fenway Health was one of 16 Massachusetts health centers to receive the Health Center Quality Leaders award, which goes to the top 30 percent of community health centers that achieve the best overall clinical performance.
