PrimeCare practices in Fulton earn recognition

For the second year in a row, the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has recognized both Fulton PrimeCare practices as patient-centered medical programs.

The NCQA patient-centered medical home standards emphasize the use of systematic, patient-centered, coordinated care that supports access, communication, and patient involvement. It was developed to assess whether clinician practices are functioning as medical homes and recognize them for these efforts. The program reflects the input of the American College of Physicians, American Academy of Family Physicians, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Osteopathic Association and others.

Oswego Health currently has six primary care locations and employs 19 primary care providers throughout Oswego County.

“Oswego Health’s team of physicians, nurses, staff, and administrators take great pride in their role as leaders in healthcare in this community. We are beyond proud of our Fulton team for achieving this recognition as we strive to provide accessible, quality care, and improve the health of residents in our community,” said physician Micheal Stephens, associate chief medical officer and local primary care.
