The Gold Seal of Approval is a respected symbol of quality in health care that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care. WellMed also received the Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) Certification, an additional designation earned by select ambulatory health care organizations. Fewer than 200 medical groups in the country have both the prestigious accreditation and certification.
In May, ambulatory health care experts from the Joint Commission evaluated how WellMed doctors and their support teams work with patients to provide effective, comprehensive, coordinated and patient-centered care. WellMed was evaluated for compliance with ambulatory care standards related to monitoring for infection prevention and control, management of medications, patient education and training, and more.
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval and PCMH Certification are awarded for a three-year period and apply to 89 WellMed primary care and multispecialty clinics in Texas and Florida.
In San Antonio, where WellMed is based, 28 primary care and multispecialty clinics received the Joint Commission recognition, including Bexar Imaging, which provides radiology services to patients in the WellMed Network. WellMed clinics in Austin, Corpus Christi, El Paso, Rio Grande Valley, Tampa, Greater Orlando and the Treasure Coast of Florida, and WellMed’s PCPMG clinics in Miami also were recognized by the Joint Commission.
WellMed is the only medical group with facilities in the following communities with the Gold Seal of Approval for Ambulatory Health Care and PCMH Certification: Austin, Corpus Christi, El Paso, Rio Grande Valley in Texas; and Orlando and The Treasure Coast in Florida.
