Patient-Centered Medical Home
Our primary care team offers you a patient-centered medical home. This approach to your health focuses on complete, proactive, preventive care that encourages wellness. It differs from the traditional model of providing reactive care when you or your family are sick or hurt (though we care for you then, too).
As a patient-centered medical home, we build strong, healing patient-provider relationships for the long term. We work together with you or your loved ones to serve as your central partner for all of your healthcare needs. Together, we’ll keep you and your family as healthy and well as possible.
Complete care promotes wellness
In a patient-centered medical home, patients and providers collaborate closely. We fulfill a number of responsibilities to you, but also look to you to play a role as an active member of your own care team.
Our responsibilities to you:
- Coordinate care across care settings
- Address questions and concerns
- Communicate treatment goals and options
- Develop treatment plans together
- Provide proven care
- Offer information about classes, support groups and other resources
Your responsibilities to yourself and your care team:
- Take an active role in care by asking questions and describing needs
- Provide a complete medical history
- Inform us of care received elsewhere, such as a hospital admission or emergency department visit
- Follow the care plan
- Participate in self-care activities
- Provide feedback about health and wellness
Putting patients at the forefront of care
As a patient-centered medical home, we seek to strengthen the physician-patient relationship with comprehensive, coordinated care. Our goal is to develop and maintain a long-term, healing relationship with each of our patients.
A dedicated care team
