ALBUQUERQUE  –– Lovelace Medical Group’s primary care clinics have received the National Committee for Quality Assurance Patient-Centered Medical Home Re-recognition for 2020-2023.

Lovelace Medical Group (LMG) first gained the recognition in 2016, which includes the Independence Square, Westside Irving and Las Estancias clinics.

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

“We are proud of the commitment made by our clinical providers, administration and staff to create patient-centered care that supports our community and our patients,” said John Cruickshank, D.O., LMG chief executive officer. “This recognition shows that we have the tools, systems and resources to provide our patients with the right care at the right time.”
