GAINESVILLE – Longstreet Clinic (LC) is proud to be honored by CareSource as the top quality performer in Georgia. CareSource, one of the nation’s largest Medicaid managed care plans, is part of the Georgia Families® program.
Among participating healthcare providers across the state, Longstreet Clinic had the best performance in the following categories:
• Well-child visits in the first 30 months of life
• Child & adolescent well-child visits

“We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality care to our patients on a daily basis,” said Mimi Collins, Longstreet Clinic CEO. “This honor is special because it recognizes our commitment to providing the highest quality of care to all patients including women and children.

As part of the honor, CareSource hosted a reception for Longstreet Clinic on Nov. 15 and presented a $500 contribution to a nonprofit designated by the Clinic. LC chose Glory, Hope & Life as the recipient of the donation.
