Your MEDICAL HOME
A MEDICAL HOME is the kind of primary health care we all want and deserve. A MEDICAL HOME is not a place—it is the way care is provided to your child/youth and your family. At the core of a MEDICAL HOME is a knowledgeable, compassionate health care provider and care team chosen by a patient and their family to take care of a child/youth’s health needs. “NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition raises the bar in defining high-quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology and coordinated care focused on patients,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Recognition shows that Town Pediatrics, PC has the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time.” For more information, please read our “Medical Home Brochure”.
