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 Health Center Quality Leader
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 30% of all HRSA-supported health centers that achieved the best overall clinical outcomes, demonstrating high-quality across their clinical operations. 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.
