The Washington Health Alliance released their 2018 Community Checkup report and The Everett Clinic is once again in the top five of medical groups in the state. We’re above average for 19 out of 35 measures, including all four diabetic care measures. The results are based on a statewide patient experience survey report, health care claims data, and various measures from their partner organizations such as the WA Department of Health and the National Committee on Quality Assurance.
According to Dr. Kent Hu, Associate Medical Director Quality Improvement, these results demonstrate that we are putting patients first. Hu says, “Quality is not just a slogan here at The Everett Clinic. We live that commitment each and every day.”
The Washington Health Alliance is a nonprofit organization comprised of those who provide, pay for and use healthcare. A cornerstone of the Alliance's work is the Community Checkup, a regional report to the public that compares the performance of clinics and hospitals.
