GraniteOne Health Members Honored for Excellence in Primary Care

CMC and Monadnock Practices named to Harvard Pilgrim Health Care’s Physician Group Honor Roll

(Manchester & Peterborough, NH) – GraniteOne Health is pleased to announce that members Catholic Medical Center (CMC) Physician Practice Associates and Monadnock Community Hospital (MCH) Physicians have been named to Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Physician Group Honor Roll. CMC and MCH are the only New Hampshire organizations on the 16th annual list.

The Honor Roll reflects exceptional performance in areas of adult and pediatric acute, chronic, and preventative care. Harvard Pilgrim identifies these physician groups by measuring 15 different metrics against national standards from the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®). Examples include appropriate treatment for children with upper respiratory infection, including comprehensive diabetes care, and breast cancer screening. Physician groups that score in the top quartile are named to the Honor Roll.

“Primary care is one of the most important and lasting services a healthcare organization can deliver,” says Dr. Keith Stahl, Executive Medical Director for CMC Primary Care and GraniteOne Health Trustee. “When forming GraniteOne, it was clear that Monadnock shares CMC’s commitment to the highest-quality primary care experience. The HPHC Physician Group Honor Roll affirms that we are delivering on that commitment.”

“Primary care forms the foundation from which all of healthcare is built,” says Dr. Luc Shippee, Medical Director for Monadnock Health Partners at MCH. “This recognition is a testimony to our shared values in promoting outstanding patient-clinician relationships and reflects the hard work and dedication of our primary care team. Together, we truly are forming a health system that’s greater than the sum of its parts.”

CMC Primary Care practices are located throughout the greater Manchester area, while Monadnock Community Hospital practices serve patients in the Monadnock region. To find a practice, visit
