Patient Centered Medical Home

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) recognizes Crozer-Keystone Health Network’s primary care practices as Level III Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH). This is the NCQA’s highest designation for Medical Home Practices. To earn this certification, practices must undergo a rigorous set of standards set forth by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.

Patient Safety First 

Crozer-Keystone's focus on Patient Safety First is evident in everything we do, from our daily safety huddles to our required attendance at regularly-scheduled High Reliability Organziation (HRO) seminars. Patients, too, can play a key role in their safe care by learning how to become educated consumers and learning patient safety and medication guidelines.
