At Greater Prince William Community Health Center, we strive for and achieve excellence. Following are some of the certifications, accreditations and awards held by the Center. You can click on the title of each to learn more.

  • Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC): FQHC must provide comprehensive services to underserved populations and offer a sliding scale payment option. To maintain this status, the Center also participates in an ongoing quality assurance program, meaning that our health outcomes and procedures are reviewed and improved  upon on a regular basis, setting us apart from many traditional healthcare providers.
  • National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) – Level 3: This recognition is the most widely-used way to transform primary care practices into medical homes and is a widely recognized symbol of quality. Level 3 is the highest level of NCQA accreditation, indicating high performance across the areas of better patient experience, better health and lower per capita cost.
  • Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) Deemed: Provides compensation to people who have suffered personal injury by the negligent or wrongful action of employees of the U.S. Government and employees of eligible health centers. To obtain and maintain deeming status, centers must pass strict qualifying standards set by  U.S. Department of Health and Human Service. FTCA offers peace of center employees, who are immune from suit for medical malpractice as well as patients, who know that in the unlikely event of malpractice, they have recourse with the federal government vs. a nonprofit entity. 
  • Prince William Living Giving Back Award Winner: This award recognizes not-for-profits making a positive, measurable difference in quality of life for people living in Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park.
