SCRFHC Receives Health Center Quality Leader Recognition from HRSA

St. Croix Regional Family Health Center is proud to announce that it has been recognized as a Health Center Quality Leader for being among the top 30 percent of all HRSA (Health Resources Services Administration) supported health centers that achieved the best overall clinical outcomes, demonstrating high quality across their clinical operations. Less than 400 health centers nationwide received the recognition. 

“Everyone here at St. Croix Regional Health Center works very hard each day to provide the best quality health services that we can and to do everything in our power to ensure our patients’ ongoing health,” said Cori LaPlant, executive director, St. Croix Regional Family Health Center.  “We are delighted that our hard work has been recognized.” 

HRSA-funded health centers are evaluated on a set of performance measures emphasizing health outcomes and the value of care provided to patients. These measures deliver a balanced, comprehensive look at a health center’s services. 

Among the performance measures explored is Quality of Care, which connects services with positive, long-term health outcomes – a direct link to patients receiving timely preventative care, and routine acute and chronic care. The Health Outcomes and Disparities measures look at the connection between provider intervention and positive, long-term health outcomes, with a specific focus on low birthweight, controlled hypertension, and controlled diabetes.

The HRSA performance measures align with national standards and are commonly used by Medicare, Medicaid, and health insurance and managed care organizations.

SCRFHC is located at 136 Mill Street, Princeton. St. Croix is happily accepting new patients, regardless of their ability to pay for services and whether or not they are insured. St. Croix Regional Family Health Center provides medical, dental, behavioral health services and much more.
