Conifer Park awarded Platinum Performance Recognition by Optum

GLENVILLE, NY — Conifer Park, a private, inpatient chemical dependency treatment facility situated on 32 wooded acres, has recently been awarded the Platinum designation by Optum for the remarkable work the facility does in the Capital District of New York state.

“I believe Conifer Park truly represents the epitome of what outstanding substance use treatment services can and should be,” said Dr. Rick Jemanez, National Medical Director, External Health Plans. “Optum does not hand this type of recognition out lightly. In fact, out of nearly 500 inpatient facilities, Optum has awarded the Platinum distinction to only 81. And we’re proud to say that Conifer Park has joined this very elite class of inpatient facilities.”

Conifer Park was presented with Optum’s Platinum distinction based on clinical data collected by Optum over the course of an entire year. Optum looked at specific criteria, such as readmission rates and average length of inpatient stay, and compared Conifer Park’s data to that of other regional facilities. Of the several key data points examined, Conifer Park exceeded all metrics.

“We are extremely proud and honored to have received this Platinum distinction,” said Roy Wallach, Senior Vice President Marketing & Development at Liberty Management. “I think it’s truly a well-deserved acknowledgement of the great work being performed by our team.

“When one of our providers refers a patient to our facility, he or she knows that patient is going to receive excellent care. That is the kind of trust we’ve built with our providers over the years. And receiving Optum’s Platinum award serves to affirm the trust providers place in Conifer Park,” said Wallach.
