Patient Centered Medical Home
We want to be your pediatric partners, providing professional and family friendly medical care for your children, from birth through college.
Children deserve a medical home- a place where their care is accessible, family-centered, continuous, comprehensive, coordinated and compassionate.
As your partner we emphasize preventative care and safety issues as well as social, mental, and developmental wellbeing.
The doctors and staff of PediatriCare Associates strive to provide your children with evidence based, up-to-date pediatric care in a kid friendly environment.
What is a Patient Centered Medical Home?
A family-centered medical homeis not a building, house, hospital, or home healthcare service, but rather an approach to providing comprehensive primary care.
In a family-centered medical homethe pediatric care team works in partnership with a child and a child's family to assure that all of the medical and non-medical needs of the patient are met.
Through this partnershipthe pediatric care team can help the family/patient access, coordinate, and understand specialty care, educational services, out-of-home care, family support, and other public and private community services that are important for the overall health of the child and family.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)developed the medical home model for delivering primary care that is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective to all children and youth, including children and youth with special health care needs.
