Robert Moore, M.D., Chief Medical Officer for Partnership Health Plan added, “This is the first time in the history of the Partnership HealthPlan that a single organization has three sites that have all achieved 100% in the Quality Improvement Program.  It takes an organization-wide effort to achieve this.  They should be proud.  We are proud to have them serving our members.”
