We are so excited to announce that all Palm Beach Pediatrics locations – Loxahatchee, West Palm Beach, and Boynton Beach – have earned Distinction in Behavioral Health Integration by the National Committee of Quality Assurance! We are honored by this recognition, and humbled by the privilege of caring for the physical, mental, and behavioral health of your children.
Primary care practices that earn NCQA’s Distinction in Behavioral Health Integration have put the right resources, evidence-based protocols, standardized tools and quality measures in place to support the broad needs of patients with behavioral health conditions. “Many times behavioral health conditions are first identified by a primary care provider,” said Margaret E. O’Kane, NCQA President. “So adding behavioral health care services in a primary care setting is a real opportunity for patients. It knocks down barriers to behavioral care and improves overall health.”
