Highland Family Medicine touted with national designation

Rochester Business Journal
April 17, 2013

Highland Family Medicine has been identified as one of 30 U.S physician groups designated as national exemplars in The Primary Care Team: Learning from Effective Ambulatory Practices project.

A joint effort of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Group Health Research Institute,
the LEAP project was set up to identify medical practices that can serve as models for primary care providers nationally.

Highland Family Medicine medical director Michael Mendoza M.D. called the LEAP designation an “honor (affirming) that what we are doing to provide efficient, comprehensive patient care is on the right track.” 

After project staff visit Highland Family Medicine and other LEAP-designated practice groups to study procedures and programs the exemplar primary care practices have devised and the practice groups themselves meet to compare notes, the LEAP project plans to develop materials other providers can use to improve care delivery.

Affiliated with Highland Hospital and the University of Rochester Medical Center’s Department of Family Medicine, Highland Family Medicine is an approximately 50-physician primary care group located in Rochester’s Southeast.
