Dr. Hudson most recently served as a hematology/oncology attending physician at the Syracuse VA Medical Center, and was an assistant professor in the SUNY Upstate Department of Medicine. Dr. Hudson practices out of IACNY’s Manlius location.
“There have been a number of studies that show there is a shortage of primary care physicians in this community,” Sullivan-Dec said. “We are fortunate that we are able to attract and retain such talented physicians.”
In December 2011, IACNY achieved the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s Patient-Centered Medical Home Level 3 recognition for both its Syracuse and Manlius locations. This is the highest level of recognition available to practices. To achieve this status, IACNY went through a rigorous application process.
According to NCQA, the program fosters “relationships between primary care providers, their patients and patients’ families, and promotes…goals [including] improving the patient experience, recognizing clinicians for their efforts and providing confidence for purchasers that their dollars are spent on quality care. Ultimately, patients receive care when and where they need it, in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner. This increasingly popular delivery system innovation leads to safer, higher quality of care, more empowered patients and a renewal of the patient-provider relationship.”
“This is truly an incredible accomplishment for the practice,” Sullivan-Dec said.
Additionally, the Syracuse office has been recognized by NCQA’s Diabetes Recognition Program, designed to recognize physicians and other clinicians who use evidence-based measures and provide excellent care to their patients with diabetes.
