The medical groups are two of just 70 organizations nationally to achieve Elite Status (the highest recognition) in 2023.Elite Status is earned through participation in APG’s Standards of Excellence Survey, which evaluates the coordinated care infrastructure and value-based care performance of the organization’s physician group members.

To achieve Elite Status, organizations must receive five-star ratings in five publicly reported domains: Care Management Practices, Information Technology, Accountability and Transparency, Patient-Centered Care, and Group Support of Advanced Primary Care.This is the tenth year in a row that Dignity Health Mercy Medical Group has received APG recognition. They received Excellent Status in 2013 and have received Elite Status every year since 2014. This is Dignity Health Woodland Clinic’s sixth Elite Status APG recognition. “Dignity Health Mercy Medical Group is once again honored to be awarded Elite Status for our work to exceed national standards when it comes to quality, patient experience, and accountability,” said Alan J.
