Posted by on Jun 27, 2017 in Network, News, Quality

Six physician organizations in the Sutter Health Plus network that participated in the 2017 Standards of Excellence™ (SOE®) member survey earned Elite status—the highest honor awarded by CAPG, a trade association for physician organizations. The survey measures criteria such as patient experience, population health and affordability.

Elite Status winners (five stars/highest recognition) in the Sutter Health Plus network include:

  • Brown & Toland Physicians, Alameda and Contra Costa counties
  • Palo Alto Medical Foundation, Alameda, Contra Costa, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties
  • Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation, Alameda and Contra Costa counties
  • Sutter Gould Medical Foundation, Stanislaus and San Joaquin counties
  • Sutter Medical Foundation, Placer, Sacramento, Solano and Yolo counties
  • Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation, San Francisco and Sonoma counties

Physician organizations voluntarily participate in CAPG’s Standards of Excellence™ survey. This year, 140 medical groups—covering more than 17 million patients nationwide— took part in the evaluation. The survey ratings, which assess medical group performance in six rigorous categories, help consumers evaluate a physician group’s technical quality, patient experience and affordability.
