UCare held its 14th annual “A Salute to Excellence!” event Thursday evening, October 13, at the University of Minnesota McNamara Alumni Center to recognize 22 clinics and care systems with top results in 2021 Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measures – including preventive care, disease management, behavioral health, maternity care, care transitions and medication management. Lakewood was honored for improving the health of UCare members enrolled in PMAP/MinnesotaCare plans.
“We are honored by this award as it shows the true dedication and care Lakewood employees give our patients,” said Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Christine Albrecht. “Ensuring the health and well-being of our patients and community is our top priority and we appreciate the opportunity to be recognized for that commitment.”
“Speaking on behalf of our Board of Directors and leaders, we feel deep gratitude for what we at UCare call “people power” and for your partnership in making sure our members get the care they need – and even more importantly – the quality of care they deserve,” said Marden-Resnik at the event. “Like we do every day at UCare you put your patients and our members first.”
