Practices recognized for diabetes management


COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Four Maury Regional Health primary care practices were recently recognized for quality leadership in the prevention and management of diabetes.

The Bureau of Primary Health Care at the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has recognized PrimeCare Clinic in Columbia, Lewisburg Family Practice, Lewisburg Pediatrics and Lewis Health Center in Hohenwald for meeting or exceeding national goals for uncontrolled diabetes and for documentation of weight screening and follow-up for adults, children and adolescents. The recognition is based on 2017 data submitted by Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) as part of HRSA’s Health Center Program Diabetes Quality Improvement Initiative to improve diabetes outcomes and lower health care costs.

“Our clinics, staff and providers work diligently to provide comprehensive care to their patients on a daily basis and this recognition is reflective of their efforts,” said Maury Regional Health FQHC Executive Director Nathan Miller.

Only 20 FQHC-qualified organizations in the United States were recognized for meeting or exceeding all three benchmarks. These practices were highlighted in the November 14 edition of Primary Health Care Digest in conjunction with World Diabetes Day.

Maury Regional Health now offers five federally qualified primary care practices. Primary Care Waynesboro received its designation in early 2018. To learn more about these practices, click here.
