Kaniksu Health Services has earned level-three Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
This national program recognizes community health centers and primary care practices that demonstrate the highest levels of coordinated and effected patient care; level three being the highest achievement in meeting PCMH requirements.
“Recognition as a patient- centered medical home offers our patients reassurance they are receiving the highest quality of care, regardless of their ability to pay, as Kaniksu Health Services strives to meet and exceed nationally recognized standards that regulate the program,” said Kevin Knepper, Chief Operations and Financial Officer of Kaniksu.
Kaniksu Health Services is a federally qualified community health center that provides high quality comprehensive and affordable medical, pediatric, dental, behavioral health and veterans care. There are facilities located in Bonners Ferry, Ponderay, Priest River and Sandpoint.
