Promise Community Health Center is proud to announce it has been recognized as a 2021 Gold Awardee for Quality Performance in Top 10% among Health Centers!
The Community Health Quality Recognition (CHQR) badges recognize Health Center Program awardees that have made notable quality improvement achievements in the areas of access, quality, health equity, and health information technology for the most recent UDS reporting period.
A large part of the quality performance measurement is also focused on preventive care and screenings, along with health outcomes for patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension.
We care a lot about prevention and screening because it is an important part of our promise of a healthier community. We also have an incredible amount of resources for patients with chronic conditions so that they can live healthier lives.– Amy McAlpine, Director of Quality and Program Development
Promise Community Health Center also received the Advancing Health Information Technology (HIT) for Quality Award: Recognizing health centers that meet all criteria to optimize HIT services that advance telehealth, patient engagement, interoperability, and collection of social determinants of health to increase access to care and advance quality of care.

It’s incredible to recognize that our teams achieved this performance in the midst of challenges from the pandemic.– Amy McAlpine, Director of Quality and Program Development
