Midway Medical Center is pleased to announce it recently received an award from UnitedHealthcare recognizing its achievements in improving patients’ health and wellness. Midway was the only practice in western North Carolina to receive the honor.
Medicare created a specialized quality care program that applies to all Medicare Advantage participants, including those covered under UnitedHealthcare. The quality care program includes 15 central requirements, including diabetes control, high blood pressure intervention, and preventive screening care. The program’s focus is to promote improvements in patient’s health. Midway Medical Center achieved the highest level rating amongst any physician practice in western North Carolina.
“We are extremely proud to be recognized for the high quality care we strive to provide Haywood County residents on a daily basis. Midway participates in many quality care programs and we are happy to see that patients are playing a greater role in their healthy lifestyle choices”, said Midway President, Nancy Freeman, MD.
Midway Medical Center is dedicated to improving the collaboration between patients and physicians, using their Medical Assistants as a key communication link. Midway Medical Center’s Operations Manager, Shirley Sawyer, recently received the North Carolina Society of Medical Assistants (NCSMA) – Mary Grubb Award. This prestigious award is rarely given because it requires active contributions on the local, state, and national level. It is considered the highest state level honor bestowed upon Certified Medical Assistants.
