What is a Medical Home?

we are a medical home

A medical home is the way care is provided to your child and your family, it is not a building of any kind. The medical home has a knowledgeable, caring doctor and care team chosen by a family to take care of a child’s health needs.

A medical home is a family-centered and trusting partnership between a child, a child’s family and the care team who looks after the child’s health and well-being within a community-based system.
