Known for Quality

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic is a nationally recognized medical group practice and the first Accountable Care Organization (ACO) in the United States to receive accreditation by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

Today, Kelsey-Seybold is the only NCQA-accredited ACO in Houston and one of only two in the state of Texas. Kelsey-Seybold patients are connected to a caring and compassionate team of doctors who work together to deliver the high-quality, efficient, patient-centered care they deserve.


Cancer Center Achievements Earn Certification


The Kelsey-Seybold Cancer Center, which strives to ensure our patients receive the best possible care, received a prestigious national certification from the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Certification Program, an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). The QOPI® Certification Program (QCP) certifies Hematology/Oncology practices that meet the highest quality criteria for cancer care.


Nationally Recognized for Excellence in Diabetes Care



More than 95 Kelsey-Seybold physicians have earned a prestigious national certification of excellence in diabetes care, awarded by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic physicians now represent the largest number of physicians to earn this certification in Houston. Certification through NCQA’s national Diabetes Recognition Program (DRP) is achieved by following a comprehensive, individualized review process that verifies a physician’s adherence to national standards of excellence in caring for patients diagnosed with diabetes.

Kelsey-Seybold is also accredited by the prestigious Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC) for providing high-quality care and services consistent with AAAHC standards.

Kelsey-Seybold also earned NCQA’s Physician Practice Connections Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition at Level 3, the highest level, for its integrated and coordinated care delivery system, which supports quality, access, continuity of care, and better patient involvement.
