Mary’s Center maintains data on annual outcomes from our medical, social, and education programs to ensure the success and quality of our services. Through our Continuous Quality Improvement plan, we track Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measures. HEDIS is a tool developed by the National Committee for Quality Assurance that is used by most U.S. health plans to measure performance.  

Because of the high results of our outcomes, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)—the branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services responsible for improving healthcare to people who are geographically isolated, or economically or medically vulnerable—has recognized Mary’s Center as a Health Center Quality Leader in 2017 and 2018. This award demonstrates that Mary’s Center is one of the top health centers in the country, having achieved the best overall clinical quality measures among the nearly 1,400 health centers across the entire United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Basin.
