Several national organizations have recognized the quality of care provided to patients by both Novant Health Family & Internal Medicine South Brunswick, and Novant practices and hospitals in the Brunswick region.
Patient-Centered Medical Home
Novant Health Family & Internal Medicine South Brunswick has achieved the designation of Patient-Centered Medical Home from the National Committee on Quality Assurance. This designation is given to practices which take steps to improve patients' primary care experiences. This designation demands that we offer not just a high quality of medical care, but we work toward excellent communication and take a comprehensive approach toward patient care. You, the patient, benefit when all of your medical care providers are working as a team and coordinating care over time.
Joint Commission Accreditation
At least once every three years Novant Health Brunswick Region practices undergo a rigorous approval process by the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). JCAHO is an independent, not-for-profit organization which sets the standards by which healthcare quality is measured in America and around the world. Our practices are among the nearly 16,000 healthcare organizations that JCAHO evaluated for the quality and safety of care.
To maintain and earn accreditation, some practices undergo an extensive on-site review by a team of JCAHO healthcare professionals. The purpose of the review is to evaluate the organization's performance in areas that affect your care. Accreditation may be awarded based on how well the organizations met JCAHO standards.
National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA)
The National Committee on Quality Assurance has recognized Novant Health Internal Medicine Calabash for providing quality care to our patients. This recognition comes after feedback from our patients as well as other medical providers. (See NCQA for more information)
