All Complete Health Primary Care Practices Receive “Patient-Centered Medical Home” Designation
Primary care ‘home’ model offers advanced, team-based care
VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla., August 12, 2020 –Complete Health, one of the area’s fastest growing primary care groups, announces all its Volusia County clinics have been recognized by the NCQA (National Committee for Quality Assurance) as Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMHs). Complete Health is a quality-focused primary care group offering patients a competitive and full-service alternative to large and sometimes impersonal health systems. NCQA’s mission is to improve the quality of health care.
Complete Health has seven primary care locations in Volusia including Advanced Family Medicine, Coastal Family, Family Practice of West Volusia (in both DeLand and Orange City), Ormond Medical Arts, Sandpiper Medical Associates and Shores Medical. All practices have earned the PCMH recognition.
A medical home is not a place, but a way to organize primary care so it is “the way patients want it to be.” Since 2008, NCQA has built the most widely used medical home model. More than 13,000 practice sites and 67,000 clinicians across the U.S. have earned the NCQA PCMH Recognition seal.
“This recognition solidifies our commitment to quality and whole-patient care,” said Jeff Preuss, CEO of Complete Health. “To qualify to be a PCMH, our practices met rigorous standards. We’re proud to have NCQA’s seal of approval for our patient-centered approach.”
Complete Health practices welcome same-day visits, offer extended and convenient hours along with special programs for seniors. Most offices also have on-site laboratory services, diagnostic imaging and dedicated clinical research.
NCQA is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to assessing and reporting the quality of managed care plans, managed behavioral healthcare organizations, preferred provider organizations, new health plans, physician organizations, credentials verification organizations, disease management programs and other health- related programs. NCQA accredits and certifies a variety of health care organizations and manages performance measures used by more than 90 percent of the nation’s health plans.
Consumers can easily access organizations’ NCQA statuses and other information on health care quality on NCQA’s website at www.ncqa.org or by calling NCQA Customer Support at (888) 275-7585.

The group based in Florida has practices in metro-Birmingham, Alabama and metro-Daytona, Florida, with growth plans across the Southeast. Complete Health builds on existing practices to embrace value-based care concepts, reduce physician administrative burden, and focus on patient care and quality outcomes – all while lowering the total cost of care.
