Patient-Centered Medical Home

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is an approach to providing comprehensive care for children and adults, in a health care setting that facilitates partnerships between patients and their primary care physicians.

Our goal is to provide quality care for your family that is respectful and responsive to your preferences, values, and needs.

  • Inform you of all test results
  • Help you take control of your health by providing you educational material, hosting group visits, and linking you to other community programs and resources
  • Provide you 24 hour access to a clinical decision-maker by phone
