Accreditation and Recognition

Chestnut Family Health Center has achieved Ambulatory Care accreditation and Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) certification from The Joint Commission. Only 10% of all ambulatory health centers in the U.S. qualify. 

  • Ambulatory Health Care Accreditation

Given to Chestnut’s Family Health Center (CFHC), the accreditation recognizes compliance with standards for coordination of care, infection prevention, infection control, medication management, and patient education and training. CFHC has locations at 702 W. Chestnut St., Bloomington, Ill., and 50 Northgate Industrial Drive, Granite City, Ill.

  • Primary Care Medical Home Accreditation

Also awarded to the CFHC locations, this accreditation recognizes effective partnerships between health care providers and patients to provide care that is comprehensive, coordinated, and patient-centered.


The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently recognized Chestnut Family Health Center as a “Health Center Quality Leader,” an “Access Enhancer,” “Clinical Quality Improvers,” and a “Health Equity Advancer” for providing the highest quality care even as we led in expanding services to an ever-increasing number of patients.
