As an agency we are accredited and certified by various bodies that distinguish our quality improvement measures, state-of-the-art performance standards, and provision of patient centered, coordinated care.

We also take great pride in the quality of care that we provide our patients and work hard to keep improving and mastering those measures.

HRSA Gold Quality
Accredited by the Joint Commission and Joint Commission Primary Care Medical Home
Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality

Health Center Quality Leaders were among the top 10% of all HRSA-supported health centers that achieved the best overall clinical outcomes, demonstrating high-quality across their clinical operations. Sixteenth Street was one of two health centers in the state to receive this recognition. Benchmarks were determined by mathematically adjusting for certain health center characteristics facilitating comparisons across health centers, and sorting health centers into quartiles for each clinical quality measure.

Having passed our first unannounced visit in 2010 and three since then, Sixteenth Street is both accredited by the Joint Commission and recognized as a Joint Commission Primary Care Medical Home. Prior to being recognized by Joint Commission as a Primary Care Medical Home, Sixteenth Street was recognized as a Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH).

Sixteenth Street is proud to form part of the Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality, an organization that aggregates and publishes health care quality information. At Sixteenth Street quality is a first priority and we are eager and willing to publish our data along side any other health system or organization in the state.

Health Equity Summit:
Empower a Healthier Milwaukee



We’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our rescheduled 2020 Health Equity Summit; Empower a Healthier Milwaukee due to COVID-19 related precautions and restrictions around large gatherings. We appreciate your interest and are disappointed that it will not take place as planned.
We will be holding a Health Equity Summit in the spring of 2021 that will include the previously planned conversation on empowerment along with other dynamic topics under the broader umbrella of health equity innovation. Although we plan to hold the 2021 Summit in person, we acknowledge the significant uncertainties we face and are prepared to adapt quickly if needed.
