The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) recognized Baltimore Medical System (BMS) as a National Quality Leader. National Quality Leaders exceed national clinical quality benchmarks or critical thresholds above health center national averages in chronic disease management, preventive care, and/or perinatal/prenatal care.
This places BMS among the top 3%, out of nearly 1,400 nationally, of HRSA-supported health centers based on key clinical quality measures.
In 2017, BMS provided healthcare services to almost 50,000 patients in Baltimore City and Baltimore County delivering affordable, accessible, cost-effective, and quality primary health care to patients in medically underserved areas. “BMS has been in the Baltimore community for 33 years serving as a safety net for individuals, families and children providing healthcare where our patients live and go to school,” said Shirley Sutton, BMS CEO and President. “We are committed to quality care that produces results and will impact the lives of our patients for today and future generations.”
BMS is deeply committed to improving health, wellness and the quality of life in the communities we serve by providing safe, high quality, accessible and affordable healthcare. Read more about the progress we have made in our 2017 Annual Report!
