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.




Chestnut Family Health Center continues to care for patients during the COVID-19 outbreak. To comply with social distancing recommendations, we are offering some appointments by telephone or video. Our in-house Genoa Pharmacy is offering curbside pick-up and mail order delivery. For patients who are seen in the office, we are doing extra cleaning and have a number of precautions in place to protect your health and ours. During the outbreak, we are following these guidelines:

  • If you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing or have been near someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please do not come to our office even if you have an appointment. Please call our office for an over-the-phone evaluation by our staff.
  • If you have concerns about coming to our office for a scheduled appointment, please call our office at least one day before your appointment to talk with staff.
