Summit Medical Group at Deane Hill recognized for excellent care of heart/stroke patients.
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has recognized Summit Medical Group primary care physicians for providing excellent care to patients with cardiovascular disease or who have had a stroke.
The NCQA Heart/Stroke Recognition Program (HSRP) was launched in 2003 as a voluntary program designed to recognize clinicians who use evidence-based measures and provide excellent care. HSRP assesses key quality performance measures, such as blood pressure control and smoking/tobacco use cessation assistance, among others.
“Each of our physicians is committed to the highest level of quality that primary care and preventive medicine can provide,” Summit Medical Group CEO Ed Curtis said. “These A physicians who participated in and received recognition through this voluntary program exemplify that commitment. We are fortunate to have this caliber of health care available in East Tennessee.
