New York, NY (APRIL 22, 2022) – All four Premier HeathCare clinics were recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance as Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH). The PCMH standard means that Premier regards its patients’ needs as the single most important factor in its clinical operations and uses it to review and improve care regularly.

The PCMH distinction gives added assurance that people who get medical, dental, and behavioral health services from Premier receive person-centered, high-quality treatment that meets a rigorous national standard. This is particularly significant since Premier specializes in treating people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), who are often subject to receiving sub-par medical care.

“Premier's consecutive years of earning this distinction leading up to today are the result of a team of administrators, providers, call center staff, nurses, and others whose collaborative spirit means our patients are treated holistically, with services that we seek to improve continually,” said Hope Levy, Executive Director of Premier HealthCare.

Premier HealthCare is an affiliate of YAI and provides medical, dental, and psychiatric services to everyone and specializes in treating patients with I/DD. Premier’s clinics offer people with I/DD access to high-quality primary care and specialty outpatient services with doctors and other professionals trained in their unique needs. Premier operates free-standing clinics in Bayside, Queens, Brooklyn Heights, East Tremont in the Bronx, and Midtown Manhattan.

YAI offers children and adults with I/DD a comprehensive range of services. YAI is committed to seeing beyond disability, providing opportunities for people to live, love, work, and learn in their communities.
