FARMINGTON — The MaineHealth Child Health program recently announced that Franklin Health Pediatrics has been recognized for achieving a “Gold” rating for childhood immunizations for fiscal year 2017, according to the standards outlined in the MaineHealth Childhood Immunizations Program’s Clinical Improvement Plan. 

Medical practices that earn this distinction demonstrate their commitment to keeping Maine’s children healthy by immunizing them on time according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommended immunization schedule.

Practice ratings are based on the average number of CDC benchmarks met per month for each of the 2- and 13-year old vaccines. In acknowledgment of this success, Franklin Health Pediatrics has received a plaque in recognition of its achievement.

Franklin Health Pediatrics is in the Franklin Health Medical Arts Center on the FMH campus. Its providers include: Nicole Donahue, CPNP; Erika Schumacher, MD; Gabriel Civiello, MD, FAAP; Ryan Whitt, MD; Tanya Lever, MSN, CPNP-PC; and Christine Christie, LCSW.
