Harvard Pilgrim Health Care recently announced that the York Hospital Physicians Group has been named to their 2023 Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Physician Group Honor Roll. The honor roll highlights physician groups that have achieved exceptional results in their approach to disease prevention and the treatment of acute and chronic illness for adult and pediatric patients.

York Hospital, ranked in the top 25% of all physician groups evaluated, was selected based on 2021 clinical performance measured against national HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set) quality benchmarks for both adults and children over three domains: Acute Care, Chronic Care and Preventive Care. Examples of these measures are:

  • Appropriate treatment for upper respiratory infection (all ages)
  • Avoidance of antibiotic treatment for acute bronchitis
  • Use of imaging for low back pain
  • Antidepressant medication management
  • Diabetes care (eye exams)
  • Breast & cervical cancer screening
  • Well-Child visits (ages 0-30 months and 3-21 years)

“We are proud to be included on the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Physician Group Honor Roll,” said Todd Adams, MD, medical director of York Hospital’s provider organization.  “In spite of ongoing COVID and mounting health care challenges, our clinical care teams’ active and enthusiastic participation in the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home Program ensures that our patients enjoy the best possible outcomes and care. From the front desk staff, medical assistants, and nurses to our physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, all are dedicated to disease prevention and treatment of acute and chronic illness through coordinated care that supports communication and patient involvement.”

Combining attentive, positive demeanors with medical expertise, York Hospital’s primary and family care, and pediatric providers nurture strong patient relationships. The care they provide ranges from routine visits, immunizations, sport/camp physicals, and hearing/vision screenings to sick care, including same-day appointments and treatment for minor illnesses and injuries. The pediatric team offers expertise in developmental and emotional care, along with the management of chronic issues such as asthma, behavioral concerns, diabetes and more. Nine pediatric, primary, and family care offices are located throughout the communities served by York Hospital.
