Medical Center gains national recognition

Gulf Coast Medical Center at 11528 U.S. 19, Port Richey, has received recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance for using the Physician Practice Connections-Patient Centered Medical Home program, an evidence-based, patient-centered process that focuses on highly coordinated care and long-term participative relationships.

The PCMH is a model of health care delivery that aims to improve the quality and efficiency of care. PPC-PCMH identifies practices that promote partnerships between individual patients and their personal clinicians, instead of treating patient care as the sum of several episodic office visits.

To receive recognition, Gulf Coast Medical Center demonstrated the ability to meet the program's key elements embodying characteristics of the medical home.
