Sturdy Memorial Hospital Affiliated Physicians Receive Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Honor Roll
ATTLEBORO, MA, February 14, 2022 – Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (HPHC) has named Sturdy Memorial Hospital Affiliated Physicians to its 20th annual Physician Group Honor Roll. The HPHC Honor Roll highlights physician groups that have achieved exceptional results to disease prevention and the treatment of acute and chronic illness in both adult and pediatric patients in 2021.
Sturdy Memorial Hospital Affiliated Physicians were one of 68 physician groups in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine and New Hampshire named to the Honor Roll. According to HPHC, physician groups are selected for the honor roll based on clinical performance measured against national standards set by HEDIS ® (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set), to assess the clinical performance of doctors and other medical professionals. Physician groups were identified as Honor Roll practices based on points earned for performance on 15 measures such as appropriate treatment for children with upper respiratory infection, comprehensive diabetes care and breast cancer screenings.
“We recognize that extensive, unfamiliar challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic have put significant strain on our provider network, and on health care professionals everywhere,” said Dr. Claire Levesque, MD, Point32Health’s Chief Medical Officer, Commercial Products. “In light of these challenges, attaining the clinical results required to be named to the Honor Roll is an especially meaningful accomplishment and we applaud these providers for their continued excellent work.”
Sturdy Memorial Hospital is a full-service, independent, financially stable, not-for-profit acute care community hospital.
