Mt. Olive Family Medicine Center, Inc. Receives 2017 Annual NCMGMA Practice of the Year Award

Mt. Olive Family Medicine Center was named the 2017 Practice of the Year at the North Carolina Medical Group Management Association’s (NCMGMA) Annual Conference, held May 7-9, at the Westin in Charlotte, NC with over 275 people in attendance. NCMGMA’s Practice of the Year Award recognizes a medical group practice that makes significant contributions to its community, patients and staff through volunteer work, fundraisers, staff wellness programs, community clean ups, and community screenings and education.

“Mt. Olive Family Medicine Center truly signifies all that our Practice of the Year Award stands for.” says Fran Sembert, NCMGMA’s 2005 President and current Governance Committee Chair. “The practice continues to grow and change to meet the needs of the population they serve and the community benefits from the education that is now provided directly to teachers, guidance counselors, coaches and parents. This resource is now local to their patients, many of whom have transportation issues and financial restrictions.”

The Practice of the Year Award, sponsored by First Citizens Bank, provides a $3,000 check to a charity chosen by the award recipient. This year’s funds will be given to the Mt. Olive Family Medicine Center, a 501(c)3. Lisa Hooks, Mt. Olive Family Medicine’s Executive Director confirmed the additional funds will allow for more baseline concussion testing for local public school athletes with a goal of providing free testing to all athletes regardless of their economic status. Up until the summer of 2015, if a patient suffered a concussion, they would have had to drive 60 miles to receive neurocognitive testing

During the conference, attendees attended educational sessions centered on the theme “Leading through Change” and heard from presenters such as Robert Laszewski from Health Policy and Strategy Associates, Skip Weisman from Weisman Communication Resources, North Carolina Medical Society, Parker Poe, and MSOC Health.
