Prospect Medical Group and its subsidiaries in California and Texas  have been awarded “Elite Status” by America’s Physician Groups (APG) — the organization’s highest ranking — as part of its 2020 Standards of Excellence™ survey. This is the ninth consecutive year that Prospect Medical Group-California has received this national recognition.

“This is the highest possible honor awarded by the nation’s leading association for physician organizations practicing coordinated care,” said CEO Jim Brown, Prospect Medical Systems (PMS). “Through our innovative high touch models, we are providing comprehensive, quality care and outcomes for our patients.”

APG recently added new metrics to also assess organizations’ performance on the social determinants of health, value-based incentives, financial standards and post-hospital discharge follow-up

“We are honored to be named an Elite medical group by APG again,” said Dr. Derek Lanier, PMS national . “Especially during the pandemic, our patients and physicians can take comfort in knowing we are providing the best healthcare culture when it’s most needed.”
