Berks Community Health Center, a local community health center providing patients affordable primary healthcare, was awarded the 2021 APEX Award for Primary Care Excellence in patient choice by the Pennsylvania Association of Community Health Centers at its annual conference in Lancaster.
The award was presented to BCHC’s Dr. Noahleen Betts for her commitment to her patients, inside and outside the office.
“The APEX Awards are designed to recognize those who go above and beyond and who are an inspiration to the patients they serve and their colleagues,” says Cheri Rinehart, PACHC’s President and CEO. “They represent the pinnacle of service, quality, innovation, and achievement in primary health care.”
The 2021 APEX Awards were sponsored by Gateway Health and featured 10 categories focused on patient care and career achievements.
Each category recognized the outstanding efforts of individuals and teams which work in and/or volunteer for Pennsylvania’s community health centers.
“Dr. Betts is a patient-focused provider, who always puts patients first regardless of what her schedule looks like. She is very concerned with delivering quality patient care and has been known to call patients herself when they miss their appointment to assure that they receive the care that they deserve. I am so very proud to have Dr. Betts on our team,” said BCHC President and CEO Mary Kargbo.
