Sang Phong Celebrates 100th Birthday at PMG

Pioneer Medical Group was honored to celebrate the 100th birthday of Sang Phong, longtime patient of Dr. Charles Kung at the Pioneer Medical Group Rosecrans Office on Monday, December 3, 2018. Accompanied by his daughter Jenny, Sang walked excitedly into his doctor’s office for his morning appointment, and flashed a big smile when he saw the lobby decorated especially for his arrival.

Sang was warmly greeted by the front office staff, and was soon joined by Dr. Kung, his primary care doctor, Facility Administrator Sofia Martinez, Nursing Supervisor Wendy Rojas, and additional back office staff who were all excited to celebrate this special birthday milestone with him. Sang’s PMG family circled around him and began singing "Happy Birthday" as they presented their sweet and beloved patient with a special birthday cake and birthday card signed by each staff member.

Smiling and speaking softly in Chinese, Sang cheerfully and humbly expressed his gratitude to Pioneer Medical Group, Dr. Kung and the Rosecrans office staff for caring for him. Jenny shared her father’s message with all the staff, “My dad says thank you for celebrating this special birthday with him and for caring for him so well over the years. He is very happy and especially thanks Dr. Kung for keeping him healthy all these years. He wishes each of you much happiness and prosperity.”

As one Pioneer Medical Group family we are deeply honored that we can celebrate special milestones like this one with our valued patients. We wish Sang Phong a very happy and healthy 100th Birthday and many more birthdays to come!

Pioneer Medical Group Earns Highest Rating for Patient Care

Pioneer Medical Group received “Elite” status in the 2018 APG Standards of Excellence (SOE) Survey—the highest possible honor awarded by the America’s Physician Groups professional organization. The survey measures medical groups’ coordinated care infrastructure against multiple criteria such as patient experience, population health and affordability. 2018 marks the 12th edition of this annual survey, with Pioneer Medical Group receiving Elite “Status” for its 10th year in a row.

Physician organizations voluntarily participate in APG’s Standards of Excellence survey. The SOE® survey is offered to more than 300 APG members in 43 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. This year, 122 medical groups, health systems, and independent practice associations (IPAs) participated in the voluntary survey, covering 12.9 million commercial lives, 3.2 million Medicare Advantage lives, and 3.7 million Medicaid lives.

The survey ratings assess medical group performance in six rigorous categories – five of which are scored and publicly reported. APG peer committee analyzes survey performance and sets a threshold in each domain for recognition as a “star”, with stars in all 5 categories denoting “Elite” status among physician groups. This rating system sets the bar for healthcare consumers to evaluate a physician group’s technical quality, responsiveness to patient experience, and affordability.

APG’s Survey has become the industry standard for assessing what is needed to deliver accountable and exceptional quality care in the physician practice setting. Pioneer Medical Group’s 5 star rating and consecutive achievement of “Elite” status over the years, not only signifies its continued demonstration of excellence in healthcare, but its ability to stay ahead of the curve in the coordination of patient care under health reform.
