Cares Community Health uses the Patient Centered Medical Home model to provide primary medical care to our patients. Our interdisciplinary team, comprised of the medical provider, nurse, nutritionist and other specialists, works with patients to manage their health, injuries, illnesses and chronic diseases. The self-management model allows patients to be in charge of setting their goals with the support of a professional health care team. Primary care services include preventive care, routine checkups, immunizations and management of acute and chronic illnesses. Our specialized chronic disease program teams focus on asthma, diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, depression and HIV/AIDS.
