Posted

A local medical group has won a national award for innovation and quality of care.

The American Medical Group Association, headquartered in Virginia, traveled to Golden to present the association’s national Acclaim Award to New West Physicians on Feb. 3. New West Physicians is the smallest medical group to ever receive the award.

The Acclaim Award is given annually to recognize a medical provider that proves to be a role model for other health care delivery organizations nationwide.

“We have continuously embraced positive change as we pushed the envelope to build an optimal health care delivery system,” said New West Physicians Chief Medical Officer Ken Cohen, M.D. “We’re extremely excited that the AMGA (American Medical Group Association) has recognized those efforts.”

The award honors medical organizations that demonstrate the following initiatives:

• Measurably improves the quality and value of care

• Improves patient experience and outcomes

• Is continuously learning and innovating

• Improves population health

New West Physicians has been a part of the community since 1994. Headquartered in Golden, the group started out with 17 physicians and has grown to 17 primary care practice sites with 100 providers throughout the Denver-metro area. New West Physicians takes care of approximately 200,000 patients. The business plans on growing and keeping its Rocky Mountain-area focus.

The Acclaim Award recognized New West Physicians’ diabetes, smoking cessation, bench-to-bedside and mental health programs, which according to a news release, “have become national models for the effective delivery of health care and help improve the physical, mental and spiritual health of the communities they serve.”

In the past, New West Physicians has also been recognized by the Colorado Academy of Family Physicians Foundation, the Better Business Bureau and several of the organization’s doctors have been named Top Docs by 5280 Magazine. In addition, the National Committee for Quality Assurance has awarded New West Physicians recognition for its Heart/Stroke Recognition Program, Diabetes Recognition Program and for using evidence based medicine and cutting edge technology to coordinate patient care.
