GARDEN CITY, N.Y., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare Partners, IPA of New York and Heritage Provider Network (HPN) are pleased to announce that HPN has received the prestigious rank of Elite Status of Excellence for medical care from the California Association of Physician Groups (CAPG). HPN is honored with elite status for standards of excellence in all categories evaluated, including care management, patient centered care, accountability and transparency and health information technology.

HPN provides quality medical care for hundreds of thousands of patients in California and in New York through Healthcare Partners, IPA.

"We are honored to be recognized with Elite status for standards of excellence from CAPG and will continue to provide outstanding medical care and wellness management to all of our valued patients," said Dr. Richard Merkin, founder and CEO of HPN. "We are working diligently to provide solutions to the current healthcare crisis, and we are dedicated to quality, affordable healthcare putting patients' wellness first, investing time, resources and professionals that respond to today's healthcare needs and tomorrow's healthcare challenges. To everyone on our team, thank you for making the difference in assuring our elite quality of care."

"I would like to offer my congratulations to Dr. Merkin and his Heritage Provider Groups for receiving the CAPG's 2009 Standards of Excellence Elite status," said Sen. Bob Dutton (R-Rancho Cucamonga). "It's clear that this honor reflects the kind of quality service they provide to their patients."

"I am delighted that CAPG has acknowledged Heritage Provider Networks by awarding us with the Elite Status of Excellence in Healthcare. We are committed to improving and providing high quality, affordable healthcare for all Californians. Our doctors and staff are focused on our patients' over-all well being and are dedicated to serving all patients that need our help," said Dr. Marc Hoffing, Medical Director and Internist, Desert Oasis Healthcare.

"The data provided by the Standards of Excellence Program offers consumers an excellent tool to help them make informed decisions about their healthcare provider," said CAPG's President and CEO Donald Crane.

Through brand programs such as Priority Care and Vital Care, we connect patients throughout the continuum of care, providing additional resources, which improve both clinical outcomes and cost effectiveness.
