NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., November 12, 2019 --- Hoag Medical Group was one of just 28 physician organizations statewide to receive the 2019 Excellence in Healthcare Award from the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) for top performance on clinical quality, patient experience and cost measures.

“We are honored that Hoag Medical Group was recognized for providing high quality, patient-centered care to the communities we serve,” said Julie Matsuura, M.D., medical director, Hoag Medical Group. “This award is a true reflection of the multispecialty physicians that are committed to excellence, innovation and compassion.”

A key component of IHA’s statewide Align. Measure. Perform. (AMP) program, the Excellence in Healthcare Award recognizes physician organizations that perform in the top 50 percent in all three major AMP areas: clinical quality, patient experience and total cost of care.

Of the nearly 200 physician organizations statewide participating in the Align. Measure. Perform. program, fewer than 1 in 5 attained Excellence in Healthcare Award performance standards for 2019, based on AMP results for measurement year 2018.
