Bittersweet Medical Associates, part of the Elkhart General Medical Group, is the first and only physician practice office in Indiana to receive a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home certification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
NCQA recognizes Bittersweet Medical Associates’ goal to reduce hospitalizations, lower medical costs and enhance quality of life. Because the focus is an ongoing partnership, the Bittersweet Medical Associates physicians and nursing team establish in-depth care plans with goals, identify any barriers to meeting those goals and educate and empower patients on ways to better manage their health.
“We are thorough with our patients and they appreciate that,” said Dr. Mark Schmeltz. “We make sure to do whatever it takes to meet their needs, whether it’s a phone call to make sure all questions are answered or a home visit to an elderly patient.”
Bittersweet Medical Associates, 12340 Bittersweet Commons Blvd, is accepting new patients. For more information call 271-8610 or visit www.egh.org.
