Martin’s Point Health Care Center In Bangor Recognized | Events
The Martin’s Point Health Care Center in Bangor has been identified as an “exemplar practice” by a new national program funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The Primary Care Team: Learning from Effective Ambulatory Practices (the LEAP Project). The Bangor Health Care Center is one of up to 30 primary care practices that are being selected for this distinction, out of hundreds of practices that were nominated by national experts and rated by a National Advisory Committee.
The goal of the LEAP Project is to identify and share innovative staffing arrangements that make primary care more accessible and effective for patients. A LEAP team will conduct a three-day site visit to understand how the Martin’s Point Health Care Center’s primary care team delivers high quality, patient-centered health care. The exemplar practices will then join together in a learning community to share best practices and distill their innovations into training and technical assistance materials that can be used by others.
“We are indeed honored to have been selected for this honor by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, particularly since it was a detailed nationwide search. It is a high tribute to the dedicated work by our office team,” said Charles Burger, primary care physician and Practice Medical Director at the Bangor Health Care Center.
