MemorialCare Medical Group and Greater Newport Physicians Nationally Recognized for Blood Pressure and Diabetes Management by American Heart Association

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., March 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — MemorialCare Medical Group and Greater Newport Physicians received the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines® – Target: Type 2 DiabetesSM Gold Certificate of Recognition, as well as the American Heart Association/American Medical Association’s Get With The Guidelines® – Target BP Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. These awards celebrate a commitment to controlling the blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes and accurate blood pressure measurements.

“We are honored to have been nationally recognized by the American Heart Association and American Medical Association,” says Dr. David Kim, chief executive officer, MemorialCare Medical Foundation. “Research has shown outpatient centers adhering to these clinical measures through the Get With The Guidelines quality improvement initiative are leaders in managing diabetes and high blood pressure cases. MemorialCare strives to ensure the health and wellness of our community and to keep our patients from needing hospitalization by managing their condition in the primary care setting.”

Health organizations are eligible to apply for these awards if they demonstrate quality outpatient care for those with Type 2 Diabetes and blood pressure measurement knowledge. MemorialCare Medical Group and Greater Newport Physicians earned these awards by achieving an exceptional 70% or greater rate of adhering to cardiovascular-focused clinical measures and controlling high blood pressure throughout its adult patient population.

MemorialCare’s ACTIVE Diabetes Program helps patients with poorly controlled diabetes reach their personal health goals. Its team works collaboratively with its patients to help them better understand what diabetes is, how it affects the body, and what changes they should make to their diet and physical lifestyle.

“We would not have qualified for these awards without the dedication of our physicians, nurses, and clinical teams in our MemorialCare Medical Group and Greater Newport Physicians health centers,” says Jessica Kwon, vice president, population health, MemorialCare Medical Foundation. “The high level of care they provide daily shows MemorialCare Medical Group and Greater Newport Physician’s commitment to providing quality care for our patients.”
