Each year, the Health Resources and Services Administration awards Community Health Centers across the country with Community Health Quality Recognitions (CHQR). These CHQRs are given to federally qualified health centers who have achieved exceptional growth in areas of access, quality, and services.

The US Department of Health and Human Services recently recognized Shawnee Health as a “Health Center Quality Leader” for being among the top 20% percent of health centers in the nation. Along with the Quality leader recognition, Shawnee Health received an additional five recognitions including:

National Quality Leader

Achieved top 20% overall clinical quality measure (CQM) performance among all health centers in the US.

Access Enhancer

Increased number of new patients by at least five percent from the previous year.

Health Disparities Reducer

Improved services for racial/ethnic groups within the southern Illinois region.

Advancing HIT for Quality

Expanded access to health information technology and improved telehealth services to allow for quick communication between providers and patients.

COVID-19 Public Health Champion

Shawnee Health placed in the top 10% of health centers that provided COVID-19 vaccinations or testing.

Patient Centered Medical Home

The patient-centered medical home is a model that puts patients at the forefront of care. Shawnee Health implemented the PCMH model to improve quality and patient experience.


Shawnee Health was one of only four FQHCs in the state to receive six CHQRs. They would like to thank HRSA for recognizing them in these categories, and they are honored to be recipients of these awards!

They would like to extend a special thanks to their staff for bringing the best quality of care to the southern Illinois community.
