BROCKPORT – Oak Orchard Health has received an $82,503 Quality Improvement Award from U.S. Health and Human Services.

OOH was recognized in three categories: Clinical Quality Improver, Advancing Health IT, and delivering Patient-Centered Care.

Quality Improvement Awards are given to the highest performing health centers nationwide as well as those health centers that have made significant quality improvement gains from the previous year. Patient Centered Medical Home is a model of care that puts patients at the center of care, which builds great relationships between patients and their clinical staff.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance commended Oak Orchard Community Health Center on Achievement of Recognition for Systematic Use of Patient-Centered, Coordinated Care Management Processes.

Oak Orchard Health – with locations in Brockport, Albion, Lyndonville, Warsaw and Hornell – was one of the centers receiving this certificate of recognition in all locations. Oak Orchard Health was recognized and awarded for their high quality work in being a PCMH. OOH has been a Patient Centered Medical Home since 1973.

“Oak Orchard Health has always endeavored to put our patients first,” said Mary Ann Pettibon, CEO of Oak Orchard Health. “It’s great to be recognized for something that has always been a core part of our mission.”
