In 2010, Metropolitan Family Health Network was awarded accreditation and certification from The Joint Commission, the independent organization that accredits and certifies more than 19,000 health care organizations and programs in the U.S. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organizationʼs commitment to patient safety and quality, and to meeting certain performance standards. It is the patientsʼ assurance that our organization is in full compliance with all applicable standards. MFHN voluntarily submits to evaluations that ensure compliance with specific standards that are conducted every three years, with unannounced surveys taking place eighteen to thirty-nine months after the previous survey.

As a Federally Qualified Health Center, Metropolitan works with a number of organizations and agencies, including the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, the New Jersey Department of Health & Senior Services, the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the U.S. Health Resources & Service Administration (HRSA). MFHN also works with New Jersey Primary Care Association (NJPCA), the nonprofit organization that represents community-based, ambulatory care centers.

 

Metropolitan Family Health Network (MFHN) is a federally qualified health center. That means that for purposes of claims of medical negligence, by law, MFHN, its employees, and eligible contractors are considered federal employees and are immune from lawsuits. A patient who alleges acts of medical malpractice against MFHN, its employees or eligible contractors cannot sue the health center or the provider(s) directly, but instead must file any claim against the United States Government. The Federal government assumes responsibility for costs related to any such claim resulting from the performance of a health services. There is no cost to a participating health center or its providers. These claims are reviewed and/or litigated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the General Counsel and the Department of Justice according to FTCA requirements.
