What does being a Patient-Centered Medical Home mean to you as our patient?
It means that you are encouraged to become a more active participant in your healthcare.
It also means:
- Personalized, Coordinated Care
- Co-Management of your Care with the Speciality to Provide the Best Care for You
- Expanded Office Hours
- Access to Primary Care, Pediatric Care, Dental Care, and Behavioral Health Services
- Better Communication between you and your Care Team
- Electronic Access to your Health Record
How do I become a more active participant in my healthcare?
- Have a conversation with your practitioner concerning your health needs and concerns
- Ask about Advance Directives and why it is important
- Let your practitioner know if you received testing elsewhere so that we may add it to your medical record
What if I need after-hours assistance?
If questions arise or if you need medical attention after your provider’s regular business hours, our Walk-in Care offers extended hours throughout the week and is open on weekends. If you’re experiencing a more urgent crisis or medical emergency, please call 911 or visit the closest emergency room.
Your Healthcare Team
The Patient Centered Medical Home model uses an “evidence-based care” approach. This method ensures the quality and ease of your medical team’s coordination of care and treatment as well as follow up care, where decisions are made based on your individual healthcare needs.
As a Patient-Centered Medical Home, we are here to work with you as a team in your health care.
Think of it as a football team…We all work together to win the game.
The game is a healthier YOU! Our goal is to create and keep a long-term relationship with you, our patient!
