Patient-Centered Medical Home

First Choice Health Centers is proud to be your Patient-Centered Medical Home where we provide a team approach to total health care.

What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
“Patient-Centered” is a way of saying that YOU are the focus of your health care! “Medical Home” means we are your “home base” or where you go first for all your health care needs.

Your Medical Home Care Team Will:
• Help you manage your health care
• Listen to your questions and concerns
• Coordinate your care through additional services
• Help you manage medications and refills
• Arrange visits to specialists

What To Expect:
As an active member of your own Care Team, you will work with healthcare providers and have the chance to explain the things that are really important to you. Together you and your team will:
• Help you better understand your health care needs.
• Work to determine the best way to deal with your health concerns.
• Help you personalize a health care plan that is just for you.
• Connect you with the health care resources you need.
