TORRINGTON — Community Health & Wellness Center recently received two awards from the Health Resources and Services Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that oversees the country’s more than 1,300 health centers.
HRSA is the primary federal agency for improving health care for people who are geographically isolated, and/or economically or medically underserved.
A Federally Qualified Health Center, CHWC received a Uniform Data System Quality Award for “Advancing Health Information Technology for Quality Improvement.” UDS is an annual reporting system that provides standardized information about the performance and operation of health centers delivering health care services to underserved communities and vulnerable populations.
CHWC also received an award recognizing its Patient-Centered Medical Home status. The Patient-Centered Medical home is a model of care that empathizes patient engagement and patient participation in decision making for their plan of care. PCMH practices build better relationships between patients and their clinical care teams, and practices that earn recognition have made a commitment to continuous quality improvement and a patient-centered approach to care.
“We are extremely honored to have received these two awards,” said Joanne Borduas, CEO of CHWC. “CHWC continues to rise to the challenges of the pandemic, and I am proud of our dedicated staff for the critical role they play in enabling us to provide compassionate, high-quality, patient-centered care. They consistently go above and beyond, making us a recognized center of excellence that offers integrated healthcare services to the Northwest region of Connecticut.”
