Badge denoting Sadler Health Center as an NCQA Recognized Patient Centered Medical Home

Sadler Health Center REcognized as a National Clinical Quality Improver

CARLISLE, PA (October 21, 2020) – Sadler Health Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center providing community-based comprehensive primary care, dental care,  behavioral health and support services at its centers in downtown Carlisle and Loysville, announced today its recent national recognitions by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). 

Sadler was awarded a Quality Improvement Award (QIA) from HRSA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the primary federal agency for improving health care to people who are geographically isolated, economically or medically vulnerable.  QIAs are one-time grant supplements to recognize health center accomplishments in expanding access to care, improving care quality and outcomes, reducing health disparities, enhancing health information technology for quality improvement, and achieving Patient-Centered Medical Home status. 

According to HRSA’s website, the QIA awards recognize the highest performing health centers nationwide as well as those health centers that have made significant quality improvement gains from the previous year.

“We are honored to receive a HRSA Quality Improvement Award recognizing our clinical quality performance in 2019,” Laurie Cross, Director of Quality and Risk Management at Sadler Health Center, said.  “This recognition will help us expand our clinical improvement initiatives, staff training, and enhancing health information technology in 2021.” 

Sadler earned the HRSA QIA for 2019 by demonstrating at least 15% improvement for each Clinical Quality Measure, advancing the use of information technology to support health care, and by maintaining its status as a Patient-Centered Medical Home determined by the NCQA, a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health quality (www.ncqa.org).  The community health center was informed last month of its fulfillment of all requirements and successful renewal of its recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home which is effective through September 2021.   

“Our philosophy, which is focused on patient-centered, team-based, coordinated and accessible primary care, aligns with the Patient-Centered Medical Home model to put patients in the forefront of care,” Manal El Harrak, Chief Executive Officer of Sadler Health Center, explained.  “These national recognitions represent Sadler’s commitment to provide high-quality, comprehensive and compassionate care to our patients as we strive to advance the overall health and wellness of our community,” she added.
