Cares Community Health
Is Your Medical Home
Cares Community Health has been recognized as a Level III Patient Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. The patient-centered medical home—one of modern health care’s most important innovations—is a model of care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into “what you want it to be.”
NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition is the most widely-adopted model for transforming primary care practices into medical homes. Medical Homes provide primary health care that is relationship-based with an orientation toward the whole person. Partnering with patients and their families requires understanding and respecting each patient’s unique needs, culture, values, and preferences. The medical home practice actively supports patients in learning to manage and organize their own care at the level the patient chooses. Recognizing that patients and families are core members of the care team, medical home practices ensure that they are fully informed partners in establishing care plans.
Cares Community Health was also recognized as an Advocacy Center of Excellence – Silver Level by the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC). This is given to any Health Center that has achieved certain measures of advocacy success and demonstrated ongoing commitment to advocacy by making it an organizational priority.
