Q Corp Names NWPC Best in State for Adult Total Cost of Care and Clinical Quality

We are proud to announce that Oregon Health Care Quality Corporation (Q Corp) has awarded our Sellwood and Milwaukie clinics for having the best “Adult Total Cost of Care” and “Clinic Quality” in Oregon, beating out hundreds of other providers in the state. Q Corp plays a key role in leading community-based initiatives that improve the quality, affordability, and patient experience of health care in Oregon.

The nonprofit scores clinics based on their cost-effectiveness and quality in fields including women’s health, antibiotic use, and generic medications.

“You should be given care that medical research has shown works best to catch health problems early, find out what’s wrong, and help the most with the fewest side effects,” Q Corp’s website explains. “These quality and cost scores show how this doctor’s office rated at providing quality standards of care and provided care at a reasonable cost.”

As a physician-owned business, Northwest Primary Care has helped local families thrive since the 1960s. We’ve reimagined health care access at every age without answering to insurance companies or hospitals. We’ve teamed up with Portland Coordinated Care Association (PCCA) providers to make costs more affordable and healing more effective for every patient.

Success in Sellwood

Our Sellwood clinic serves patients in the greater Portland area, including Southeast Portland and Oak Grove. Whether you are looking for help managing chronic diseases or performing minor surgeries, compassionate physicians are there to help ease your mind.

Q Corp recognized Sellwood for having affordable care prices and more effective treatments than other providers in the state. Our Sellwood clinic stood out in women’s health and low-back pain treatment.

The procedures recognized at our Sellwood clinic included the following:

  • Mammograms
  • Pap smear tests
  • X-rays
  • CT scans
  • MRIs

Our physicians were also recognized for recommending generic drugs to lower cholesterol over more expensive options. We recommend our patients lower-cost options because we want you to receive the same level of care without having to pay more.

Mastery in Milwaukie

Those living in Gladstone, Oak Grove and the rest of the greater Portland metro area can expect considerate, attentive health care in check-ups for children and adults, nutrition counseling and more at our Milwaukie clinic. Q Corp acknowledged our Milwaukie location for supplying top-notch care at a lower-than-average cost. This clinic particularly excelled in exams for children ages three to six years old.

We agree with Q Corp: Good health care doesn’t have to be a financial drain. We take every measure to keep our service prices low and patient costs down by avoiding unnecessary tests and treatment. On top of that, we’re committed to making your exams, surgeries and other medical procedures the best experiences you can have.

We’re working on cutting wait times. We’re striving to communicate well with our patients. We’re holding strong and high ethical standards to meet our patient needs.

As a community-based organization, NWPC is able to prioritize our patients in ways that bigger health care providers can’t. All of NWPC’s practitioners, nursing staff and support team members collaborate to serve your well-being. We’re proud to be a part of the legacy so many health care advocates aim to create.
